I understand this will not happen overnight, nor will it be easy. But I must at least try to give it my all. And as you can see by my ups & downs ...

I cheated on the soda challenge. Not until the 21st, but I had a can of Pepsi that day. The first chug tasted amazing. As good as I dreamed. But the rest left me thinking, what do I see in this? How are you doing??

I just wanted to say hi and tell you that even though I've been away from SP for the past several months (bogged down with work and stress) I am looking forward to ending the mighty-year-of-challenges that has plagued me this past year and start fresh soon... I may be still a bit scarce around here for the next little while but I did want to let you know that I've been thinking of you and hope you are doing well in life, in happiness, and in your journey.
