A Thank you note and a confession

First off I wanted to publicly thank my wonderful sister-in-law, Stefanie and brother-in-law Mike. Thank you so much for watching all five kids last night so Matt and I could go to the banquet. I realize that I am so relaxed about leaving my kids that I barely gave Stef any instructions and yet she just rolled with it and took care of my kids like they were hers. She fed them, changed them, and loved them. Oh I am sure Mikey helped tons too. Oh and one more thing thanks for doing my dishes too. What a treat to come home to a clean house. You guys are loved and very much appreciated.
And now onto a confession. I've known I've had a problem for a long time. As long as I can remember. So here it goes, My name is Becca and I am addicted to sugar. Whoa I feel better. My mom tells a story about how I would sneak into the sugar bowl and eat it with a spoon. Yikes, I know really sad. As soon as I put Tobin down for a nap I rummage though the cupboards like a junkie looking for a fix. So in a effort to get more healthy and loose a few pounds, I am cutting out sugar for a while. I have to take this day by day folks its got a hold on me. Wish me luck and tonight when your praying for world peace, say a prayer for me too. Detox is a bitch.

I think sugar addiction is hereditary. I've often found Luke and Isabela up on a stool eating out of the sugar bowl. I've tried many times to cold turkey. Here are some suggestions from a seasoned junkie:
1. switch to raw sugar. (more expensive but not as harmful)
2. use honey or maple syrup to sweeten. The honey is actually healthy and the maple...well it's just yummy.
3. wean yourself. (if you use 3 teaspoons in your coffee like me, use 2 1/2, then 2 etc.

Sorry, that's all I got. Good luck to you.
