The Unthinkable Happened

I lost my appetite! Yes, me of all people. Can you believe it?! I certainly couldn't. I have been mildly depressed since Saturday. Let me tell you how bad this was. I didn't even want to look at food. I mean no Tastespotting or FoodGawker. I didn't even want to go into the grocery store. I was starting to think that I was sick.

Well, I found out that it was one of the side effects of losing weight. You see I've lost nearly 18 pounds since I decided to change my eating habits. People have been reassuring me this is a good thing. What if I've lost my cooking mojo? Okay, I'm just being a little overly dramatic. Please forgive me. I know that losing the weight is the important part. I guess I now have an opportunity for a little creative license with my fave dishes. I have a chance to tweak them in a way that I'll get the flavor w/o so many calories or fat. You know I'll keep you posted.

How's your journey going? Have you kept up or fallen off the wagon? What sacrifices are you willing to make for your health?
