Post One - New and Improved

It's Carries birthday!

I decided to change the name of my blog because of the focus of my life right now. Besides my kids, who always and forever come first, I am trying to kick my lifelong addiction to sugar. It's going pretty well so far. I HAVEN'T killed anyone, so that's a positive.

I was down over six pounds for the first five days of the 17 Day Diet (by Dr. Moreno) then up two (after a night of partying with Japanese food, sushi, and booze) then down .4 #. I don't find the 'weighing in daily' routine to be very good for me. I really try to focus on how I feel physically and mentally as opposed to being a slave to the scale. Most every good diet book will tell you this, so I know I am in good company.

It's really much more than a diet for me. This is a way to change my relationship with food. I want to live a long life, see my kids go to school, maybe get married, maybe have children, or just chill with their momma.

I've really been trying to avoid all sugar and most processed foods. It is surprising how easy this becomes after a few days. I guess the mind is a powerful thing after all.

I'm going to try to avoid any detailed descriptions of my digestive tract by just saying that things are 'moving along nicely'.

I'll keep you posted!

I am really worried, did you tell me about this blog? I had NO idea! IT will be interesting to read about your journey! Love you!

I did not tell you about it because it wasn't anything before, really. Just posted it tonight after I changed the name of it. :) You awright!
