I was thinking since I posted, just how often I eat carbs. Ive been doing a baked potato every week ( cause others in the house want it)- mashed potatoes with steak ( cause others in the house want it)- then I WANT IT - darn it. Its pretty tough for me to not taste what I prepare- tasting becomes eating a more than light serving of it.
Geeeze.
I gotta get real here.
This is not easy. Im already worried about failure.

Have you ever tried cauliflower mashed instead of mashed potatoes. Irteuly
Is
Pretty good

Hi, Soberleigh.

Kicking sugar addiction is tough but doable.

As Michael Jordan's trainer says: "If you really want to know what a person is made of, make him go through 10 days sugar detox".

One day at a time goes a long way.

During my sugar-free time I was on a couple of all-inclusive vacations. You get the picture - temptations all around.

I was fine and didn't struggle, didn't feel deprived or restricted.

Really, it was mostly in my head.

Hopefully my dentist will fix my tooth tomorrow and I will be able to eat properly again.

Best wishes to all.

So glad I can rest for twenty minutes before getting my son. I will have to do the windows on Sunday.

About a week ago,I bought Giradelli chocolate bars with86% cocoa. I started out having three squares a night,found it surprisingly satisfying, and am now down to 1-2 squares.

Cookies and cake are also a big problem. If there is cake in the house, it is gone I notice.

I have been this way all of my life. Often, I am the only one to order dessert.

Hi Leigh!!

Thank you! I am working on painting the windows blue this week. Then I need to find curtains. Cant wait to share the finished product with you all!

I think you girls have similar colour tastes....OK, color, American spelling...bet Leigh is going to be all over helping you to find the right curtains Sunny. :) ♥

I love curtains! If that gorgeous room (with that beautiful brick and amazing mantel) were mine, I would go for plantation shutters

But I love curtains, too - they create so much softness and interest (not to mention the fun you can have coordinating pillows
!

Ouch, MB; Ihopw that your dentist can completely
take care of that tooth.

Love that Michael Jordan quote. A ten day detox :scared: just the thought of it.

Thete was a miles long chocolate on a cruise that we were on. I embarrassed myself and my husband.

My biggest psychological issue is that I grew in poverty and when I was 12 years old I went almost a week without food.

And I have kind of emotional fixation - I don't tolerate being hungry, it make me panic.

And I feel like I have this "roving anxiety" if I don't stuff myself extra-full on a regular basis.

When I am at a grocery store I want everything.

Regular healthy meals help a lot with that because when blood sugar is stable and the brain is happy it's easier to apply logic.

But I still need to find the key to make my scared hungry inner child feel secure and happy.

And I am determined to do this.

Hunger is a humiliating experience. I have to leave it in the past and stop leaking into my present.

See you.

I simply cannot imagine what you went through,MB. I am so sorry.

Ooh- I’ve never had plantation shutters!

I really wanted bamboo shades but they are not in the budget and also it’s very difficult to hang anything with these windows as the lip is like 1/4” thick. So curtains are my only option. Also I have about $120 left to spend :/

venuscat 06-18-2018 05:30 PM

Have a look at Overstock....just even to get a good range of options, if you haven't...I always get ideas from there. :hug: ♥

I love bamboo shades, too; they are some of my favorite things from the 70s. I bet that they are much nicer, now.

This was dinner tonight....my mum's old favourite....sorry about the mayonnaise but it's organic and made from good stuff....so lots of tuna and lettuce, eggs, beans, beetroot, tomatoes and cucumber. I love it....so does Nick....luckily. :)
