    When I was going through the English program for my B.A., I encountered a lot of Emily Dickinson's work. One of her poems was about how to tell the truth, preferring a more roundabout approach, instead of in-your-face. Of all her poems I covered, this was the only one having stood out, since I finished; and, has become my favored approach when informing others of whatever insights I've collected

    I have a lot more space in my pantry when I tossed out all of the pasta, rice and bread, only to be overtaken by the addition of lots of new cooking spices.

    something along those lines. It's been a while, haha. When it comes to telling people about it, I found, introducing gluten free is a great launching pad. It seems like there's greater sympathy for those under the spell of gluten sensitivity/intolerance.

    Junk Food tastes like shit after eating real food. I want to like the junk food- the fried chips last night with blue cheese and buffalo sauce looked so good. I ate one and it tasted like shit and had that nasty aftertaste. The St Patricks Day whoopie pie. Gross. My beloved hashbrown patties- eww.

    And my new junk food is so frickin expensive- 85% chocolate with hazelnuts. Raw milk local cheddar. Real cream. The fixings for flourless chocolate cake or mousse.

    When you get used to real food; and appreciate its taste, you don't want to go elsewhere.

    I'd gripe about the cost of real primal food too, but I eat so much LESS of it these days (and stay satisfied for far longer than I ever did eating SAD/CW) that I can't gripe too much.

    But OH GOD THE COST OF BUYING NEW CLOTHES. I've dropped enough dress sizes now that I had to break down and get new shirts and shorts for this summer - what I wore last year just isn't going to cut it this year, I've shrunk so much. And I know I'll probably be out buying a whole other wardrobe this fall.

    My wallet, it's crying.

    Some days it just feels weird, being me. I'm not hungry all the time anymore. I turn down food all the time, too - that old carb-addiction is dead and buried. Food tastes weird sometimes, like it lost its appeal, and I just don't want it, in other words, only feel like eating when I'm truly hungry. I know these are all good side effects but they take some getting used to. And since I've lost weight, my body's become squishy and shaped weird and uncomfortable. I have new corners.

    I hear you, on that. I might end up going to the tailor, more often. This will definitely make my wallet cry, even more.

    Yeah, I hear you on this, too.
