It's been a year, so why not some progress pictures? 121 pounds down so far

I haven't been perfect, but I've stayed the course. Could I have lost more? For sure. Would I have loved this way of eating? Pffft. I have learned to embrace progress over perfection. And here I am a year later! I am thrilled.

I used to own a site, but I sold it to head back to school to realize some new dreams and to make more change in the world from my own little corner. I have no regrets, and two books (unrelated to cooking) I collaborated with Random House on are hitting bookstores this year. Life is filled with so many terrific adventures!

Yeah, I'm nobody special, but I'm hoping my work in low carb in the last year or so might inspire someone who's been stuck for awhile, someone who has a long way to go, or someone who's just having a crummy day.

You're worth it, and while a year sounds like a long time, in 365 days, you're going to be somewhere; why not a lesser version of yourself? I have a long way to go, but I'll get there; you will, too!

Jamie, that is INSANE. You don't even look like the same person. Not even RELATED to the person you were a year ago.

You inspire me all the time here!! WTG!

Thank you so much, Olive! You are such a sweetheart. I sometimes forget to gauge progress, and I have to slap my face and remind myself that a whole lot of health problems went away with those 121 pounds so far.

Oh, now. I am pretty laid back about this stuff, but I am kind of excited, too. It goes against my INFJ nature to say, "Look at me!" I don't particularly like being the center of attention, but I do like to help.

You look really beautiful, and are very inspiring. 121 lbs in one year? It's great to know we can achieve those kinds of results.
