[Support our Advertisers!] Contributions from our Members:   Curriculum Wars! ... When we first began to homeschool, there were few choices in curriculum and practically no homeschool curriculum developers at all. Homeschooling families were few and scattered so we rarely had the opportunity to discuss various curriculum or methods with peers. Instead, we were forced to do the best thing possible--DEPEND ON GOD. [Support our Advertisers!]

A little late, but.... Embarassed

I was up again this week, but only a bit over a pound. My "high" weights, keep going down, so I won't worry too much.

This week is focused on getting the carbs under control. I seem to run in cycles....loss, slight bounce back, a week or two when carbs feel out of control, then back to loss. The trend overall is downward, so that is good. I think I would have more steady weight loss if I could find the "just right" amount of grains/carbs to eat that fills me up, but doesn't cause gains. While I can limit carbs and grains, it seems much more of an all or nothing approach. I can keep the intake low, but only so long before hunger and a psychological *need* drive to eating more than I should.

I need to put gum or lollipops on the shopping list. We are making Christmas cookies next Monday and that is a really hard day for me. It doesn't take much for me to be physically ill from too much sugar; but even the threat of feeling miserable isn't enough to not indulge. Better to keep my mouth busy! Maybe that would be a good day for a diet Coke, although I haven't had any since Thanksgiving.

Hopefully, you lovely ladies are all doing well this holiday season. It is the home stretch to the year end. I have a couple of goals I am trying to reach before then, and that keeps me motivated.

In Him--Tracy

Can I jump into this thread? I've peeked in before, but haven't been serious in a good long while. Something happened (photograph from behind Laughing ) that has me beyond knowing that ugh I honestly am worse off than I allowed myself to acknowledge...I've taken stock and realized that it's just a series of really unhealthy choices during a time of depression that was allowed to go on for about three years. Nothing I can't undo by making wiser choices all around. I've taken my "before" photo angles (just for myself), weighed and need to (sometime today) take my measurements.

Good Morning,

Welcome, Jamie!

The last 2 weeks were awful - I caffeinated well which meant calories, BUT I avoided an anesthetic headache I usually get. It's actually not hard to stop drinking the mt. dew now. I'm back to V8 and 1 glass of tea a day.

I am working on a kitchen stocking for when we get to Utah. I'm looking forward to starting 100% fresh. I figure if no junk goes into the house, then we don't eat junk. Our place out in Utah is now 100% ours and ds1 said he took every bit of food from the cupboards so it's bare. I am trying to come up with a good spice plan and then will probably start out with shopping daily. It's convenient and a good excuse to get out for a 1 1/2 mile walk every day.

I don't get to do housework or exercise for another 4 weeks so healthy food choices are a must.

25yos, 23yos, 13 yod I guess I am old enough for adult children.

My stomach hurts, but I still choose joy! :-)

"We Are Still Learning" ... As teachers of our children, we can sometimes forget or ignore that we are also students, that we are still learning each and every day. Think of all that you have to learn. Think of all that the Lord is trying to teach you.
