Credit Card Payments

When I record a purchase it gets added to my expense totals. When I then record a creditcard payment it also gets added to my expense total. this makes my expenses look 2x the amout actually spent.  How do make these entries so this does not happen?

    A credit card charge should be recorded in a Credit Card account in Q.
    THEN, the card payment, which is recorded as a transfer from your checking account to your card account, isn't an Expense.
    SO, how are you doing it?
