Trying to rejoice

"Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us." Romans 5:3-5 NIV

OK, I'm not sure than I can consider sugar withdrawal suffering, but it sure feels like it. I have had the most horrible headache today! I am feeling better though, so hopefully I'm through the worst of it.

I weighed in at work yesterday for the start of our challenge. I was 239! I'm pretty sure that is more than what I weighed when pregnant with Isaiah! I will keep you updated on my progress. I will probably post the new weight weekly and maybe add a side bar to the blog of my progress. I am trying to mainly give up sugar, drink only water and diet pop or sugar free Crystal light, and do moderation. This was my menu for today:

B- 2-3 scrambled eggs and 2 slices of bacon/ Diet Coke
L- 1 hot dog with mustard and 32 Frito's (yes I counted out a serving)
S- Round steak (broiled), a crescent roll with butter, a salad with bacon, mozzarella, and Caesar/ Diet Coke

I'm sure the headache was from sugar withdrawal, that's what happens to me when I don't have caffeine. I am praying for you.

I remember those first few days when you are so angry for dieting that you begin to plan the deaths of family members and friends in your head. I have so been there. The good news is that that feeling goes away and you will not even be tempted by sugar in a couple of weeks.
