No Sugar? What am I Thinking?

So first I had to give up Diet Soda?  Which was and continues to be one of the most difficult things I have ever done.  I'm including giving birth because at least then I had an epidural.  Unfortunately there is no epidural for Diet Soda withdrawal. 

Today I start giving up sugar. I'm aware that Friday is Halloween and my children will be bringing all kinds of goodies into the house.  But it has to be done.  Because as much as I was dependent on Diet Soda I am double that with sugar.  If I am going to give it up I might as well start on the hardest day of the year.  That way the rest of the year will seem easy. 

Right? Right? Hello, right? 

Oh well, I just wanted to warn you that the next couple of weeks I may seem a little, umm, angry? Turns out that is pretty much how I handle change.  I get really angry until I talk myself down from the ledge. But I know you are all there for me and promise to be nice and not send me chocolate to make me be nicer.  

Well unless you really want to send me to chocolate.  Then you know I would have to eat it because I wouldn't want to hurt your feelings.  

Oh alright enough of that. Don't send me chocolate. 

Well unless you really want to. 

Hummm, are you getting the next couple of weeks are going to be a ton of fun.:)

Have a happy sugar free day.:(

Ask theSwimMom post later today. Before the hate sets in. :)

Best of luck to you! ARE YOU CRAZY!!! :) How no sugar are you going? Just not sweet foods or no sugar in anything? You'll do great I'm sure.

I hear omitting sugar from one's diet makes the person feel worlds better. So, good for you!

That said, I think I am going to go roll in the sugary goodness. I'll think warm, fuzzy, sweet thoughts of you whilst I cover myself in the confectionary crack.
