I LOVE Candy


If you know me, you know I love sugar. LOVE. IT. Love it so much (you know the old saying...I could marry it). Seriously, I can't remember a day in the last few years that I haven't had some sweet treat. Mmm. Love treats, a lot.

But I am giving up sugar for the next 40 days!! Can I do it? If you see me...remind me or ask me how I am doing. I am just going to appologize right now if I am grouchy. Sugar brings out the best in almost everything about me (except my waistline!).

So, here goes craziness...

Yeah, why?
By the way, you can tell that you must spend alot of time around 3 and 4 year olds if you still remember the great old saying of "I love it so much I want to marry it." I can't stop laughing about how funny that is. I can't believe I had forgotten it, Im gonna have to start using it more often!

Wow! I have been struggling with the thought of commiting to one week without it, I just don't know if I can do it. I am 100% addicted to sugar. Good luck, let me know how it goes. Maybe this will motivate me to try too, thanks!

Define sugar. Everything or just sugary treats and stuff? Even though my cravings are usually for the savory, I might just join you in your quest.

Joey it's so good to see you back to blogging. I love Extra sugar free gum to cure those sweet cravings-keep it in with you at all times and if you feel the sugar craving pop some in. It really helps a lot :) Good Luck!! You can do it!

What are you Catholic? All the people around me are giving up the thing that will help them lose weight for lent!!! I think it's great... on so many different levels.
I have the very same love. I will never give it up... I love it so much I will work harder in my everyday life (extra steps, extra fast), just so I can keep it. It does make me so happy!
I'm so happy to see you back!
