Must be something about 38 that resonates with people... like some of your other blog commenters, I am also turning 38 this year, and it seems like time to make some major decisions. Why now, I have no idea...

Of course, every question on everyone's mind (and I mean everyone from doctors to random people on the street) is my reproductive situation... not really sure what I want for the future regarding that, but good luck with your goals!

I understand your sugar issues too...

Happy belated Birthday! Sounds like you're a year older and becoming wiser by the minute...

I hope you will also took some time to treat yourself, like going to a spa because you'll need something wonderful to replace sugar.

And once the bundles of joy arrive, you might not have the time to indulge in spa treatments. : )

Good luck with your No Sugar experiment... I don't know what it is about the late 30's, but I did the exact same thing this past April: no sugar for 30 days, just to see if I could make it through without a) wanting to dive head-first into a vat of chocolate and b) my friends wanting to strangle me.

Interestingly enough, I managed to come through the 30 days relatively unscathed! And, it even gave me something to write about in my sparingly-posted to blog. Bonus!

Have fun with it - it isn't as hard as you think it might be. Honest!

Congrats on giving up sugar. I've been doing it for 6 months and although I've been less than absolutely perfect (Hello, molten chocolate cake in British Columbia, I still remember you), the results have been undeniable (33 pounds down and counting).

Here's one tip: frozen fruit, cream and a bit of vanilla or almond extract in the Cuisinart has the same texture and is almost as good as ice cream.

Good luck and I'll be interested to hear how it goes!

    Publisher's Weekly said: "Full of romance and adventure, laughter and tears, the story is a reminder that veering from the straight and narrow road doesn't always lead to a dead end."

    What is Starfish Envy??

    • L.A. 2009. I’m stuck in traffic on the 101 freeway, listening to Isabella Rosselini on NPR. Isabella, for some reason, mentions that starfish are one of those rare species that can reproduce asexually, and I realize that if I could do that, I wouldn't have to worry about finding a boyfriend/husband. I wouldn’t have to internet date! I wouldn't have to figure out if I want to/can/should have a baby/adopt a baby/child on my own. I wouldn't have to stress about things like FSH levels, or weigh my feelings on in vitro versus adoption. I would just have a baby. Thus began my starfish envy.
