It is time I come clean with you. I’ve been hiding a secret from my blog family and I can’t hide anymore. My name is Carole and I am on a diet.
 
You see, a few weeks ago I realized that my baby girl was not really much of a baby anymore, but yet I looked as if I just gave birth a few weeks ago. That finally became unacceptable to me.
 
So far, I am down 31 pounds and honestly, I’m ticked at myself that it took me so long to get back into shape after having baby #6. I am such a happier, more outgoing person when I take care of myself.
 
For now, I have completely eliminated sugar from my life. It is only temporary, but it is what works for me. Currently, my salvation is sugar free fudgsicles. Honestly, I think I would die without them.

With six kids and a hungry husband, I can’t tell you how often I go into my freezer to find my treasured box empty. INFURIATING!! My house always has some form of cookie, cake, ice cream or treat to choose from so LEAVE MY ONE TREAT ALONE!

In defense of my treasured sugar free fudgsicles, I am now making everyone else their own so they will leave mine alone. It is a complete success because they devour these and mine are still there when I need my chocolate fix.
 
I like that these are fat free and if you aren’t a fan of corn syrup, you can leave it out, but your end result will be more icy and not as smooth. I found these molds at Wal-mart for $3, but you can always use disposable cups wrapped in foil and poke them with a stick.
