It has been 15 days since my last post. I’ve thought about writing everyday, and then something would steer my attention another direction and the day would go by without my pen to paper. Before I knew it, it became “days” that had gone by since I last wrote and that is when the panic…… Continue reading Overwhelmed and Paralyzed
Reminding myself this journey was not about weight loss is a struggle. I finally stepped on the scale this morning and the official change is -5 lbs. So yeah, a loss!

Wait, Wait…I’ve managed to go on living without bread?
