On a somewhat happier note: Back in November, I wrote that I wanted to stop drinking soda. And generally I have. As a result, I have lost almost 10 pounds and all but one pair of jeans don't fit. I am really excited about this weight loss. And it makes realize that if I just hadn't started drinking soda how much better my weight always would have been.
Now, it I could just not drink or eat as much sugar and carbs.
