Deal with the Devil
This is a sort of funny post - not a problem, that I need advice on.
So, to just lay it on the line: SD13 is a heavy girl, really cute, but 50lbs overweight - 5' and 163 lbs.
She has a mother, Toxic Troll who is considered obese at 5'3" and 220 lbs. Ive mentioned previously that she buys her daughter treats and "goodies" like cupcakes and pies and cookies, and will "drop them off" at our house. When its her time, Munchkin SD tells me its all fast food.
Cut to last night at dinner, while Munchkin was eating an ice cream she sais, when I look over at her with my "look", "I havent been eating sugar pretty much the whole week, so this is my sugar..." lol.
After dinner, we measured her height, we chat, we talk about hormones and growth and as always I (sneakily) slide the conversation into a lecture about sugar, how it affects growth, and the brain, blah blah blah. Then I mention that I have joined the "sober curious" trend and am trying to go alcohol-free (hasnt worked at all btw, but I still try). We talked about howw wine is kind of MY sugar like she has HER sugar and what did the little scamp do?
Got me to make a deal, that we will each give up OUR sugar for 30 days (yeah she tried to get me to agree to "forever", but well, lets be realistic here...).
She said she wants to be a little devil-child for Halloween because she likes the fake teeth, so i literally just made a "deal with a devil".
So, Step Talkers, cheers to Day 1. Please someone take a sip for good luck for me this weekend.
