    Confessions of a Weight Loss Junkie

    Hey Jeff! That is great! I have been a clean eater for quite some time. I have never had a weight issue but I do have food allergies and fatigue problems that lead me to go that route several years ago. Yes, I do have an occasional food item that is not considered clean eating but on a whole I watch what I eat. It really does become a positive and easy habit. You will eventually start viewing food VERY DIFFERENTLY and you will change your thinking. I view food that way and think to myself, "How will I feel if I eat this or that"? That keeps me on track. In no way am I judgmental toward others who choose to eat the way they want to, sometimes I wish I could just eat anything but can't. I do this for me because it makes me feel better. I do admit that when the holidays come around I want what everyone else is eating but it really messes me up if I do. I envy those who can eat whatever they want and still feel great!

    In time this will be an easy task for you and your wife. Studying various healthy foods is very interesting and I have enjoyed doing that and I am sure you will to.

    I have some recipes for healthy desserts that have no added sugar (or fake sugar) if you would like to try them and they are sweet! They are naturally sweetened with fruit!

    Keep us posted on how it goes!

    God bless you all, Jeff. It's a blessing that your family has each other through all this. And know that you have many of us on MMC, too, to listen and pray.

    Many prayers to you, friend. I can't begin to imagine what your family is going through.

    Your words were beautiful.

    My mother is the citadel of our family, the rock we all lean on. She is also my best friend (other than wifey). It's through her love and compassion that I am where I am today....probably much like you.

    God bless. May your mother, father, and remainder of your family feel God's grace and mercy in these times.

    My Part in the War on Christmas

    I agree with you, Jeff. Some folks just have to be this way. Haters gonna hate.

    It's unlikely that arguing against them will change their minds, so ignoring them is usually the best course, assuming they will let it go.

    I'm sorry you have to deal with folks like that; people who claim that we are racist, bigoted and hateful, while spewing hatred with every breath. Your willingness to endure this kind of abuse for the sake of protecting this site does not go unnoticed.

    Kill 'em with kindness!

    Thank you again for having the right words, Jeff. All of us have a little Louann in us, and if we put all those pieces together, we can continue what she gave us here every day.
