I read these beautiful cookbooks and seek out the lowest carb of the recipes but still feel guilty when I fix them. I hadn't even gotten to "the day" yet when I discovered JUDDD. I just don't believe in accidents so I believe my decision to periodically indulge in my passion and finding a way of life that embraces it was just supposed to be my path. I've been doing this now for 2 weeks, feeding my soul as well as my body and have lost 9 pounds. I cannot express how grateful I am to all you folks who write daily to encourage those of us new to this profoundly rewarding food plan.
Yayyy, Grace! 9 pounds in 2 weeks - WHOOO HOOO!

I love that I can use the recipes in my cookbooks too! I had just perfected my homemade pizza crust and then had to quit making it when I went on LC Now I can make it and any artisan breads I want to try (I'm not good at bread-making, but there's something about doing it every once in a while that makes me feel good).
