    Congrats for all the progress!

    BTW, hot peppers are great for clearing out the sinuses. Have some spicy dish and push it right to your limits. Keep a box of Kleenex handy... LOL! Hot peppers are also an appetite suppressant, as well as being loaded with nutrients. Who needs pills anyway?

    I wish I had some good advice on the 2 and 5 year old issues............ I only had one child, and he was really pretty quiet. I guess I had it easy.......... but it all came down when he started having social anxiety issues and flunking out of school because with an IQ of 142 he was bored to shreds, and refused to do the mindless and unnecessary homework assignments! This started in the 3rd grade. So, he went from a straight A first and second grader to a barely making it passed each grade - all the way through his first years of college! We had to put him in an alternative high school, with excellerated learned tactics, just to get him graduated! I thought I would go insane before it was all over! Then it kept going on into his college classes! UGH!! Finally he got his act together, went to ITT Tech and got his drafting degree - now he's got a great job and making good money! But, his social life is non-existant. At 26 he has yet to have a girlfriend, and his co-workers are his only social outlet. So --- getting him out of the house and into his own apartment is the next major step! and that should be coming in the next couple of months. Sooooo - maybe you're getting all the hard stuff out of the way early and the rest will be a walk in the park! *fingers crossed*

    Day 9 was a success. Full of cravings though. Not sure what that was about but I really wanted cookies today. Cookies are my weakness.

    B: (6 am)
    4 sausage links
    2 boiled eggs
    vitamins

    Movement: 5k walk with SIL in 55:18 pushing a stroller with a 35 lb baby girl and gear.

    S: (1 pm) pkg Hormel nitrite/nitrate free turkey breast

    Movement: grocery shopping

    S: (5 pm) bratwurst and sauerkraut at the race track

    Movement: chasing 2 year old daughter and 5 year old son at the race track.

    D: (11 pm)
    salmon filet sauteed in ghee
    sugar snap peas in a pool of ghee

    Mid-day meals were really lacking. Starving at 11 so I went ahead and made some salmon. Just sounded so good and I didn't want to go to bed with this hunger. Besides, the day was relatively carb free, not to mention uncommonly low on fat.

    No change on the scale. Still up a lb and still stuck at 202. Where did my 201 go?? I miss 201.

    On that note, I think I'll accept the invitation from my book and go lay down to read for a while. I hope everyone had a great day.

    I LOOOOOOOOVE COOKIES! AH!

    Seriously, that was the best part about quitting my job recently, took me away from a few REALLY Delicious bakeries downtown, and whenever a shift was stressful I'd grab a cup of milk from the drink station and have one on the way home (they're HUGE). Now whenever we deliver arugula to one of our restaurant customers she gives us free cookies, and hot damn are the delicious. It seems I can't escape the cookies...so I may as well...just...eat them?

    Maybe your cravings were caused by super low fat days? It's a weird concept for me, but I've been purposely putting pats of butter on EVERYTHING to try and avoid binges. Not sure if that's really helping the weight loss, but at least it's improving my mental game.

    It's really weird to me that on Day 10 of a sugar free challenge, I'm starting to crave sugar. Maybe I'm not eating enough fruit. I've been craving things I haven't had for a while - cookies, mt. dew, ice cream, fruit snacks. It's frustrating b/c I've come this far without those things and now I'm craving them.

    A friend of mine had to have surgery yesterday. He's a buddy from my Army days. He was cleaning his pistol yesterday and managed to shoot himself in the hand b/c he failed to check the chamber before he started cleaning. He ended up having surgery last night about midnight (the accident happened at 3 pm) which resulted in 3 pins in his hand.

    A guy my husband raced with on occasion was killed in his race car on Friday. He got his car sideways and someone hit him broadside in the driver's door at full speed. They air lifted him to the University where he died of internal bleeding.

    So, if bad things happen in 3's, what's next??

    Well, I caved. I had a cupcake and wasn't impressed, so I had another. Really? Then I had two peanut butter cookies... again, not impressed. I think this sugar and the lack of impression caused a sugar binge b/c I later had a Mt. Dew and a sugar cookie from the gas station with a grossly sweet icing on it, half a chocolate chip cookie with caramel pieces in it and half a monster cookie. My tummy is very unhappy right now. But I think that's a good thing. The intent was to binge on sugar so that I'd get that sick to the tummy feeling and hopefully remember said feeling so I don't do this again.

    But, I'm not giving up. I'm going on again. Day 10 was not a success, but Day 11 has great potential.

    Jenn have you looked at that series on YouTube? The Skinny on Obesity, it's called. There's one long show on that called Sugar: The Bitter Truth. Watch that and you might have trouble persuading yourself to eat sugar again. It really shook me up. I put it on and listened to it while doing the cleaning, so it wouldn't seem so long, but I'm going to go through it again and take notes.
