This is my dog, Sammy. He passed away on July 29, 2013. He was blind, deaf, and my heart.

    Thanks for the friend add! I recently changed my page too. What was yours like before? I love the background imagery you have. Your blogs are great too. I'll check out more in time. Good luck on your 5% challenge goals. I'm wishing your family (you, husband, dog) lots of love, peace, and understanding in this season of changes.

    Love your Sammy! My baby is an 11 year old Irish Setter. I brought him back from England with me 2 years. He loves my sofa, esp now that his hips will not allow him to come upstairs at bedtime. How are you doing with the challenge? I am doing OK, but sweets were never my problem. I am making loads of homemade soups and chili laden with tons of veggies. That way I can get that full warm feeling on these cold days without going over my calorie counts. Oh and I quit smoking 3 years ago after smoking for 38 years. I highly recommend the nicotine gum. It gives you something for your mouth and keeps the nagging for a ciggie at bay. I still chew the lowest nic ones but my doctor says I can chew it forever if I want as it has no carsogens.

    So, I've been thinking a lot about the comment you left on my blog the other day... and here is what I think I have decided. (Oh, before I get into that, how did your appt go?) I still don't know what all my sugar coping strategies are going to be, but I think that to SOME degree having alternate things to go to is good. Having some sort of "replacement" addiction can be good, at least in the short term. I think we MUST have some THING that we do when we are stressed to cope. Be it smoke or exercise... one of those helps while the other harms. I know for me, I tend to go for sugar when I am feeling out of control. So I need to do things that help me feel in control. My therapist recommended that I try using some of my yoga to help in those moments. Because stressed out and standing in front of the pantry, I can slide into down dog and feel powerful and in control. Is it trading one addiction for another? Yes. Does it keep me from harming my body by shoveling crap into it? Yes. Eventually, I hope to learn to deal with my feelings without feeling the need to eat. But until then, I will use healthier skills to manage the stress. Because the only way I can see to not need a coping mechanism (at this time) is to close myself off from the world emotionally and I am not willing to do that.

    So, yeah... I need to find a way to cope without trading one addiction for another... and I am working on that. But, in the mean time, I will trade one addiction for another... emoticon
