As for how the rest of everything is going...I'm starting to feel noticeably better. I feel happier in general, and find myself less inclined to snap at people or complain, and more compelled to just laugh stuff off.
Part of me feels (and has felt the whole time I was doing stuff I knew was bad for my body) that I maybe let myself go so much so that I could go through the "finding health and happiness" process over again. I tend to enjoy journeys and challenges more than end results, and I am finding myself enjoying this process again (once I got past the initial push). However, I know it's not good for a body to yo-yo up and down in weight or in health, so I will have to figure out what to do with this knowledge, come up with new challenges for myself so that I can avoid doing this again.
Anyway, those are my thoughts for the day.
