    Wow, I'm sorry you're having to go through that. I wish there was something I could tell you or do for you that would ease the stress you're feeling about that situation, but I'll be here to listen, so will all of us. But it sounds like you've got a bright outlook, that you know you'll see her again on the other side, that's definitely important.

    Great poem. Is there a hidden meaning/story behind it?

    The redness, the sticky red color Staining the carpet, the mess I've made The tool of this mayhem left from my hands The terror in their eyes The terror now in mine Help will soon arrive They'll take the fallen away I can never turn back time This mistake too expensive My strawberry milkshake Spilled all over the floor They offer no refunds

    Random Thoughts of Randomness

    I was listening to another TED talks video last night about this man that was sentenced to life in prison without parole but it didn't let it stop him from becoming a better man. He taught classes in prison to the prisoners inside cells and used a bar of soap as a makeshift marker on the walls. I'll spare the details but the classes he taught were a big reason why he didn't go insane in prison and contributed greatly to his success in life. I say all this because it feels like I'm in prison even though I'm not. I have no hobbies (just running and NerdFitness). I go to an 8.5 hour job I don't like, come home, do laundry, wash dishes, shower, browse online or go to the YMCA, and then go to bed and I'm not very happy this way. I guess my main question is should I create a new thread on the forum and treat it like a classroom for the benefit of other users? Is that a way I can show employers I have initiative or would it be scoffed at? Anyone can create an online thread after all. I want to break out of this rut because serving food and washing dishes is all I've done on the job for the past 4+ years and those skills don't transfer to the health and wellness field.

    Be Strong and Courageous

    That's fantastic news you're not giving in to temptation. You're army of followers are right alongside you helping to keep you in between the lines. I wonder how many real girl scouts are ground up and served within the cookie dough anyway.

    soft drink/ soda

    I'd like to echo what Bean Sidhe said concerning the acid reflux. The company I used to work at gives their workers free drinks all shift long from the soda machine, it's caused a few reflux problems for me but nothing requiring meds. My solution might be something you can try for yourself. I drink sparkling water and Powerade Zero and it takes my focus off of soda. I always used to go eat at Taco Bell 1-2 times a week after work. The buttons for the soda and the water are right next to each other, so what I did was fill my cup halfway with water first, and then fill the rest with diet Pepsi or diet Dr. Pepper. It was watered down of course, but I got my soda fix. Start with halfway with water (or a quarter-full with water), then gradually work your way up until your drink looks like soda but tastes like 90% water. Your brain will still taste the soda in it.

    Onward

    Some bananas, protein shake, and some protein snacks, those can do the body good. I'm liking the pictures you've been uploading, maybe one day you'll upload a before and after photo when you hit your ultimate goal. But anyway, I see those Quest protein bars in the photo. I bought some of the those last week - they're the raspberry-cheesecake something flavor - but I haven't opened the box yet. I'm wondering what your opinion of them is.

    Neat looking gym there, deer too. I wonder if that's the mother and her daughter deer in the foreground.

    You know you're from south Texas when you hear "mirror" pronounced "mirr-uh". Even I've done it before.
