    Oh my! I am truly glad to read this post. I honestly didn't think you ever ate anything but healthy food. I know it is all relative, and I imagine most of what you ate in Detroit was really fairly healthy, and at home, I think you eat unbelievably healthy, but it is nice for me to know that not only are you a "goddess" but you are human, too! ;o)

    Maury...you crack me up! Of course I eat junk! I try so hard not to, and I think I do really well compared to most, but I know others who blow me out of the water.

    Clearly you haven't read past blog posts like this one: http://movingstronglyforward.typepad.com/moving_strongly_forward/2012/02/dumb-ass-of-the-week-award.html

    And there are more. Over and over I make the same "mistakes" but I am learning to be more accepting of them.

    Oooops, finally got back to checking your post/reply. I did read that post. My husband (and therefore my kids) still eat Cheetoh's and Oreo's and other packaged goods. I still bake with real sugar, I cut back, but believe me it is a lot of bad stuff. I have had to let go of that for a little while, because my negativity toward it was causing way more stress and unpleasantness. Last night I got a big victory when my kids all told me that McDonald's doesn't even taste good. OK I can probably count on one (well maybe two or even four hands) how many times they have eaten at fast food joints, but yay! They are 6, 9, and 12, and they don't want that! That is a victory. And for now, I can balance the junk that they do eat with lots more of really good for you food, that is where our journey has to be. Fortunately, no one seems to have any really obvious health or brain issues, though I only wonder how much better everyone would be eating better. I will get there, but sometimes I feel like a snail trying to nudge an elephant! Have a great Memorial Weekend!
