It is that time in my life when I feel the need to reflect on the changes over the past several months – let’s get real – the last year. I have been through and accomplished a lot. I recall a year ago facing the need to deal with my health. I was so morbidly obese I couldn't even face weighing myself to see what the scale read. I just knew I was at least 150 pounds overweight. The changes I instituted were going to be drastic in order to address the severity of my deteriorated relationship to food. I made them – I gave up all forms of sugar and artificial sweeteners grains and all things made with flour, and even gave up caffeine. It is one year tomorrow that I have not eaten things made with sugar or flour (albeit, I have returned to drinking coffee). The reward for this is feeling much better physically and having lost around 70 pounds.
