A time of sacrifice.

A SERIOUS sacrifice for me is refraining from sweet foods.  In fact, I would love to sink my teeth into a Twix bar now.


The plus side?

Feeling good about resisting the urge to eat it, cook it, buy it.


I have lost 8 pounds since Ash Wednesday.  


OBVIOUSLY I ate too much of that junk to begin with.

    Yeah, it’s junk, but it’s so good! lol
    I wish I had the willpower. I seriously need some.

    Congrats on the loss. I’m happy for you!

    Wow!!! Good for you… me, I haven’t done so well…. I haven’t had any sugar… but I haven’t lost much weight. But, perhaps you’ve just inspired me!

    … as I sit here, after having fought the urge to eat for three hours… unable to fall asleep… sticking a loaf of banana bread into my big fat face….

    WAY TO GO!!!

    Wow! Good for you! I don’t eat a lot of sweets now. My definite downfall is any kind of bread…which turns right to sugar anyway. Yep, the carbs kill me.

    Feel your pain- I gave up sliced bread and rolls. Ahhh! I want a sandwich.

    Congrats on the 8 lbs 🙂 Withering away on us…
