I have not eaten sugar or grain for a week today. It has been very hard, but I have lost 2.5 lbs. The strange thing is that everything tastes weird. I don't know if it is the lack of sugar or what but everything is just a bit off. I did try Jacks cookies (they are made with agave). They were delicious but REALLY sweet. I plan on doing this until after lent. We will see how it goes but that is week one.
