I hope you’re as excited as I am. We have all been working so hard, so it’s time to celebrate our accomplishments!

Now on to how I’ve been doing with our Mid-Year Challenge… Be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled share my progress and thoughts, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian). Be sure to subscribe for updates by adding your email right (in the sidebar) or through Feedburner in the title bar up top. You can also click the tab up top that says Mid-Year Resolution for regular updates.

I ate this:
Breakfast: Skipped.
Lunch: A slice of my Deep Dish Bacon Extravaganza Pizza
Dinner: Olives + nuts + cheese

Notes:  I am still feeling a little under the weather today, so I could have a wee virus.

What I learned:

Treat New Year’s Eve as your coming out party. You’ve earned it! Share all of the amazing things you have learned over the year, relish in your hard work, hug those who sompliment you, and prepare for another great year.

You have worked hard. This is your time.

    Jasmie, thanks for all you do every day of the year. I am so glad I found your website. The recipes are truly awesome and I am having so much fun with them, especially the gluten-free low carb pizza, which I am making on Sunday. Best wishes to you and your family for a happy and healhy new year.

  4. can’wait for the new year and more of your web sight.

  5. Jamie I just want to say your site is awesome I found it looking for low carb recipes. And you are an inspiration I look forward every morning to see what new recipe you have posted. I have tried many of them. I went thru chemo 2 years ago for breast cancer and all the steriods i was on caused me to gain 30 lbs in 1 month and I have been so depressed because I had tried everything to loose the weight by the way i am also a diabetic. The low carb diet has stablized my blood sugars and I lost 11 lbs but I am stuck and cannot loose anymore do you have any suggestions for me. Signed desperate.

    • Patricia, that is so difficult a situation to have to go through. I am so happy you made it through! I am celebrating today as a day that is good because you’re here to tell me about your amazing losses.

      Now to your stall, how long have you been at the same weight?
