    We made through the 30 days - Yeah! I lost 11 pounds and can fit into my shorts and pants that I couldn't fit into in the spring. My before and after pictures are definitely different. I'm very happy I did this - proud of myself too. Thanks again to everyone for their support.

    Day 28: It's been pretty quiet on her as of late. I hope everyone is doing well and they are noticing lots of NSV's. I can honestly say that I see a difference in my body appearance - can't wait for the before and after pictures. I can't say that I feel much different, but I didn't feel bad before I started - just a bit pudgy. Thanks to everyone during this journey. This blog has been helpful and a treat to peruse each day. Can't wait to hear about people's results here soon.

    @Pippin1 So glad you got a photo uploaded!

    Day 22! Last night my husband told me my face was thinner. People are noticing - that is a good sign.

    I had some back injections today and they threw me on the scale ahead of time. I closed my eyes and asked her not to tell me - . Whew, crisis averted.

    @Pippin1 Yes, ghee is so expensive. So, your best bet is to find a deal on butter and make your own. It's quite easy (and MUCH better). Good luck, and thanks for the note.

    Try a different brand of ghee, or better yet, make your own. I just use it to cook with. As for the photos, there are several options for you. 1) If you are using an IPhone, first email the photo to yourself and it will ask what size you want it emailed (and it should tell you the size of each option). Just be sure the selection is under 9.5 MB. Then use that to upload. 2) If you have photo editing software, open the file there and choose the resize option. Select to keep the aspect ratio. Try reducing by 50% - that should do it unless your photos are 20 MB. Do a "save as" to keep the original plus the new sized picture. 3) Select a lower resolution on your camera/phone so when you snap the picture, it isn't as large. Hope this helps!

    Day 19. Great weekend. The birthday cake was a hit according to those that ate it. Stopping myself from licking my fingers while baking was the hardest part - not that I wanted to, but more out of habit. I enjoyed my open faced hamburger along with a few strawberries for dessert. Still feeling good and my pants felt even better this morning. I'll soon be able to get back in to all my work pants (I've been wearing only 4 pairs for a while now because they were the only ones I could get by with).

    Birthday cake is made. It was a new recipe and it looks and smells soooo good. My husband said we can freeze a piece For party tomorrow I'll have a hamburger, no bun with lettuce, bacon, tomato, and mustard. Dessert for me will be strawberries. Found some sweet ripe ones at Sam's Club.

    @kalsjourney I don't like kale much either, especially crunchy. The trick cut very slender pieces and then massage the kale with your fingers using with some olive oil until it's absorbed and softer. You'll be amazed at the difference!

    Today is the half way point. I am definitely noticing some body changes. I did dream that I popped and chewed an M&M then realized what I was doing and had to run and spit it into a paper towel. I guess I'm still craving sweets in my sleep. This weekend I am hosting my husband's 65th birthday party. I plan on making a cake for him that I can't touch or lick the batter. That's going to be a tough one, but I know I can do it.

    I am so sorry about your pork roast. I think almost everyone has done such a thing - not plugging it in or not turning it on. Unfortunately, you should throw it all away. Don't even think about keeping it. Just think of it as a lesson learned.

    Oops, make that Day 12 is over - time is flying by!

    Day 11 is almost over. I'm full from dinner. Made my Chicken Vegetable soup (with extra chicken) that I mentioned earlier. I normally would eat with some mini saltines, so I substituted avocado. I figured you put avocado in Chicken tortilla soup, so why not chicken vegetable? It was delicious. Pants felt a little easier to button this morning too. Looking forward to day 12.

    When ever I diet, I always have food dreams. The latest one I had was that I took a bite into a Krispy Kream doughnut and after I cried because I had to start my 30 days over again. I woke up and thought it was real.
