This post is more about me than my kids or how I feed them. I must confess, I have a TERRIBLE sweet tooth. I can seriously eat cookies or cake all day. The older I get, the worse it gets. I will go as far as to say it is an addiction. I work out 5 days a week and otherwise watch what I eat, but I have got to get rid of the excess sugar in my life. I shouldn't be eating anything I have to sneak to eat so my kids won't see me.

Starting today, I'm giving it up. I'm posting this for the world to see for accountability. I'm also posting this because my addiction is part of the reason I feed my kids the way I do. I don't want them to ever have to deal with a sugar addiction.

If you have any advice for me, I'm all ears!


  1. I'm T2 diabetic and can sooo relate....It's easies for me when it's just not in the house-which is hard cause the hubby eats "junk food" sweets....out of sight out of mind-I try and keep everything in the cabinets and put so I can see them LOL....hope you can find something to help you...

  2. Get a copy of the South Beach Diet book and do the phase 1 for 2 weeks. It is designed to break cravings like this. It is worth a try.
