it's my one year anniversarry of being UC free!  how did i celebrate you might ask? by gardening, digging holes, mowing, tromping through the woods and pulling weeds!  might not sound like much fun, but to me it was great just to feel like doing all those things and be able to do them!  One year ago i couldn't have done all that.
so anyway, yay for me,lol

I use the WHOLE month of July just to enjoy the foods I like, When I want them. That is my anniversary month and I celebrate it every year, without fail!!! I figure that I deserve it for all of the years that I couldn't eat food, so 30 days a year is really no big deal!

I'm glad that you celebrated! Congratulations.
