You? Are an awesome mom. Look at you eating that whole loaf of bread to save your kids from all those bad carbs and sugar. That is Exactly why I ate that entire bag of resse cups during the kid's nap today. It'd have been bad parenting not to.

Ha! I made cookies last night and hubs polished them off for breakfast... when I gave him a half-hearted hard time about it, his reply was "If you're not happy about the Cookies- it might be the las ttime I try to Help..." Help away... :D

Mom Gone Mad

OMG! I made cookies too last night and finished them for breakfast as well! That was after I gave my fiance the death stare and told him if he finished them after I went to bed he would be sorry. Life is too stressful to give up carbs/sugar!!!

Would he be interested in a test? (men and competition) Just have him go have his blood work done and then give himself 6 weeks with only protein and non-starchy vegetables. Have the test again. My cholesterol dropped 75 points when I did this. Motivation?

Fruit isn't all bad when dieting. It depends on what you're trading it for. If you're eating an apple or a cup of grapes instead of a small pile of cookies, you're definitely ahead. Besides having less calories and fat, fruit tends to be filled with water and fiber which helps make you feel full.

Of course, as with anything, moderation is key. If you're eating a dozen bananas for a snack, you're probably not helping your body.

When I lost my weight (120-ish pounds, and then gained about 80 back, and now I'm pretty stagnant at 240, but putting on muscle like crazy, so my clothes are shrinking), grapes (and cycling) were my salvation.

Now, I run . . . a lot (my blood pressure is moderately high, but my cholesterol is quite good, and my triglycerides are, like you, safely in the double digits), and really try to let my cravings tell me what I need to eat. Slowly and in moderation.

Funny how "wine" is always wanted...
