Why I've been baking less during the past year.

I love to bake.  I love to eat what I bake.  And my body has paid the price.  Last summer I finally decided to get serious about losing the excess weight I've accumulated over many years, and that meant baking less frequently.  I haven't done anything drastic to lose weight - no pills or surgery or crazy low calorie diets.  Just upped the exercise (a lot!) and tracked what I eat to stay within a reasonable calorie limit.  So I do still bake, and I do still eat yummy stuff - but I  had to cut it down a bit!  I will be posting more delicious treats as the weather cools and I'm able to use the oven more comfortably, but did want to share the difference a year of mindful eating and steady exercise can make.  I'm about halfway to my goal weight now:
