End of June Update

I am so very glad that I started this diet because this first month has been so incredibly satisfying. First of all I survived and stuck with the diet. I think the main reason I stuck with it is because it is so challenging. I am not the type of person to leave a bag of chips unfinished so I personally need the extra challenge that comes with this diet to stay away from my traditional comfort foods.

I've learned how to make butter, whipped cream, cream cheese, feta, and yogurt from scratch. I've also learned of the importance of getting enough fibre in your diet and that there are many more choices of flour beyond whole wheat and regular white flour. I plan on building upon these lessons as I keep moving forward.

And last but not least ..... I lost weight. As of this morning I weigh 181 pounds ... I dropped 15 pounds in June. I feel better, I look slightly slimmer and I have more energy. I couldn't be happier with the results I see after only one month.

Where do I go from here? Pretty much more of the same ... I want to continue to survive, learn and become healthier (lose weight). Looking ahead in to July I expect that you will see me making mozzarella cheese, baking veggie and cheese quiches and for a little variety maybe a little goat soap making. So stay tuned!


  1. Congratulations on your success. I have enjoyed following along.

  2. Your enthusiasm is so exciting and inspiring! I admire your commitment and envy your opportunity to submerge yourself in this challenge. Thank you for sharing your journey.
