"That's Mommy's Thin Mint"
Here's what I don't understand. I would lay down my life for my daughter in a second, so why can't I lay down the cookie?<br /><br />As you might have gathered things aren't going great on the diet front. I mean they are horrible but I'm kind of at a stand still and have gained a little. I have been on a sweets bender for about 2 weeks now. I can't fight the sugar cravings.<br /><br />But I want to. I need to. I read another article just this morning, <a href="http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/38600414/ns/health-kids_and_parenting/">discussing that increased obesity in children may be causing them to start puberty earlier, as early as SEVEN YEARS OLD!!!</a> That is crazy. We're doing everything we can to keep exogenous hormones out of her system, hormone free and organic foods, bottled water, etc but preventing her from becoming obese is solely my responsibility. I don't mean that my husband can just wash his hands of it, but nothing will influence her eating habits more than my eating habits. <br /><br />On that note, I'm going to try to eat as though I was sharing my food with Caroline at every meal. In a way I am still she is still nursing, but I wonder if I would be so quick to eat those cookies if I had to feed her half of them.<img src="http://theblogbooster.com/pixel.gif" width="0" height="0" style="border-top-style: none; border-right-style: none; border-bottom-style: none; border-left-style: none; border-width: initial; border-color: initial; " alt="" />
