Thoughts On Thursday

1.)  I don't watch a lot of reality TV, mostly I watch HGTV or true crime programs. But I have gotten sucked into Married At First Sight on fyi. Does anyone else watch it? Four experts weeded through all the applicants and found 3 couples they deemed compatible and that agreed to marry the person chosen for them, sight unseen. I think they have 4 weeks to live as a married couple before they decide if they want to stay married or divorce. The idea was so see if commitment can made a marriage work, as opposed to falling in love and then marrying. It's hard work to make a marriage work between 2 strangers. Two of the 3 couples opted to stay married and 6 months later they are still together and happy. It's so cool to see how they have grown. This program reminds me of something our pastor told my many years ago. He said "Love is not a feeling, it's a commitment."
It will be interesting to see if these couples are married at 5 years........

2.)  I guess I am just too stubborn. I see a recipe that looks good and I make it. I prefer to bake. I eat a only a couple pieces, because it doesn't taste as good at it looks, hubby may eat a bit. Then I throw it out, I hate to waste food, but why force myself to eat sweets (unnecessary calories)??? I want to give up my desire for sweets so I don't overdo it again. I want to keep my weight down. I need to get it through my head that I'm satisfied with a small piece, not 2 servings like I used to crave.

Enuf thinking for today.


  1. I just started watching this program last week. I think the firefighter and his wife will make it. I don't think the black couple will make it because they are so different in their needs/wants and aren't willing to give and take like the other couples. I also love HGTV and could sit and watch it for hours! As for the sweets, I've read several places on the internet that sugar feeds cancer...not sure if it's true, but since reading it, I've tried to avoid it as much as possible. I love chocolate like you so that's hard to do but I've started eating carob instead of dark chocolate and it seems to curb my cravings. Thank you for all your sweet comments on my blog. It's so nice to know I have a friend out there who understands and can empathize along the journey. You are a very sweet person and I'm thankful we've connected!

  2. I watched the whole thing(back to back) except the one that was this week which was 6 months later(forgot) interesting idea! i would like to see them in 5 years also. I am with you on the food. Since I am just now getting my appetite back, the need to watch out while I still have the small portion attitude.

  3. Hi Linda,
    Try not to worry about what you just need to get and feel better! Thanks for your comment on my blog:)
