You need to tell DH because one person going off sugar needs to change the whole household. I have changed a lot of habits because my DH has gone off it. I don't buy sugary snacks, I make FHE treats that he doens't like or that are lower in sugar, I sympathize with him as holidays approach. If you live with other people they need to know.


Yes yes yes, and save one for me!

Hang in there Jen. You are amazing and you need to give yourself more credit. Yes, you are doing ENOUGH! You are doing more than that. You don't have to be perfect in EVERY thing, just perfect those things that you have been guided (by divine inspiration) to perfect.


I did tell DH I'm laying off sugar. I just didn't tell him that going to the Dr was a main reason. You're right, I couldn't do it without his help. He helps by eating all the sugar before I can. KIDDING!

Thanks Jules! I'm not so sure that this sugar thing is something I was guided to do. Sometimes knowing if it's inspired isn't easy. Is that a stupor of thought?


I say, don't answer it! The first couple days of something new is the hardest. But don't go off sugar permanently - that would be no fun. You can do it, Jen!


I like sugar! :)


This is my new perspective on all I can do:

Really, all I can do is stay on the path, and repent when I sin, and keep on trying, and trying, and trying again.

I once heard a religion professor connect the following scripture with 2 Ne 25:23:

Alma 24: 11
11 And now behold, my brethren, since it has been all that we could do, (as we were the most lost of all mankind) to repent of all our sins and the many murders which we have committed, and to get God to take them away from our hearts, for it was all we could do to repent sufficiently before God that he would take away our stain—

You are doing great, girl, because you care, you are in the covenant, and you keep on trying.

I love you.


Oh, meh. Obviously, I didn't close the bold font right.

There are two times the phrase "all we can do" shows up in some form in that scripture. That was what I was trying to bold.


Thanks for your thoughts Michelle. I think some of my issue is pride. I want to do it all, I want everyone happy, everything lined up in a row, and fair. Again, that takes Christ out of the equation so it's not right. This is hard, which is why I continue to revisit it!


I know, Jen, I come to that realization myself a lot, too. It's amazing how easy it is to slip into the mode of rejecting the Savior's atonement at some level or another.

I revisit it often, too.
