I know this is a totally boring update, but I wanted to be honest. I said if I had dessert that I would record it here. So, I had dessert last weekend on a date with Neal and last night for a youth girls' sleepover at our house. Tonight I think we might have dessert again, but I'll have to check with Neal first. :) Overall, I do not crave the dessert nearly as much as I did before. The less I eat it, the less I crave it. The more I eat it, the more I crave it. Interesting... One more update...I did have dessert on Saturday and Sunday. I'm going to try not to have any until Father's Day/my bday. :)

I think it's been 3 weeks since I wrote my "desert the dessert" update. Things have been going really well overall, I think; praise the Lord! I have lost about 3 pounds since then. I've been continuing to do some running 3 days a week. I have been skipping desserts except for the following: Joshua's birthday (I included that as one of the days I'd eat dessert), one leftover piece of birthday cake (which I asked Neal about first), and a Starbucks frappachino on a date night with Neal. I am finding that I'm not really craving the desserts like I used to. I have been enjoying more fresh vegetables for snacks and making fruit smoothies to satisfy my sweet tooth (but much healthier than a bowl of ice cream or batch of cookies). I am 4 pounds away from getting out of the "overweight" category for my bmi and into the healthy weight category. That will be an exciting day if/when I can get there. I'm hoping that day will come soon! That will also be right around my pre-Micah and pre-Caleb pregnancy weight. I've got 27 more pounds to lose to get my goal weight. Thanks for reading! :)
