Sugar and You

I have decided, with the help, support and joint cooperation of my wife, am trying to cut my sugar intake for the next 30 days.  I started yesterday and was able to avoid any cookies, cakes, candies, doughnuts, candy bars, etc.

I am attempting to curb my sugar and in the process attempt to lose some weight.  I am also attempting to eat better and in so doing be nicer to my body.

This is something I tried a while back, but this time I am not going to quit if I miss one day, I just keep going.  I am just going to try and make it through as many days as I can without having sugar.  I think this is a better goal than trying to cut out my sugar entirely.  I just don't want to have a lot of sugary sweets.  They do nothing for my body and only add to my waist line.  And I don't want to waste time on my waist line unless I am removing some of it.

I know there are lots of diets out there about eating sugar and not eating sugar.  I am just working on trying to limit sugar in my life.  Try to place it last on my list of things I want to eat instead of at the top of my list.  I want to eat better so my body will feel better and I can enjoy life more, instead of feeling tired, overweight and uncomfortable about myself.  I like my self, but I want to love myself.  I want to really enjoy who I am fully and who GOD wants me to be.

My mom needed to quite smoking to better be a person that GOD wanted her to me.  I think I need to cut down on my sugar so I can be who GOD wants me to be.  With doing this I need to watch my portion sizes on other foods too.  I know this.  I sometimes eat way too much and sometimes just not the right foods either.  So I am going to try and dedicate my fueling up to GOD and let Him lead me in what I should be eating and the amounts.

Just like today I am trying to listen to GOD and be more gentle, kind and understanding of people that I deal with.  More patient and slow to respond so that I can be more of what GOD wants me to be.  I want to give each day to GOD and let him lead me.  I have struggled with lots of things in my life and I want to struggle less.  I want to allow GOD to be and to work within me.

So starting today, I am going to try and listen more to GOD and try to do what is right by my body and by my family.  I am definitely going to try and just live my life and allow GOD to be and to do what needs to be done in my life.  That is what I want and that is what I am going to do.  I really want this.  I want to be more of what GOD wants me to be and I want to allow Him to be in my life what I need.

BTW this ad strikes me as funny.  Please take a look. ->  Funny Ad.
Using sugar to eat less.  That is just too funny.


  1. Funny ad! I'm glad to be cutting back on my sugar. I feel better already. Glad your with me on cutting back on sugar. Looking forward to our date today.


  2. I was thinking even Alton Brown let's himself have a sugary treat one day a week so that's what I'm going to do.


  3. I had a wonderful weekend and I can't agree more with the sugar idea. I Love You Too.
