My "eat light" efforts have been assisted somewhat the past 5 days by the fact that I got my tongue pierced last Friday. I've been drinking a lot of Slim Fast shakes and iced coffee, LOL. But today I found I could eat almost normally, and instead of being swollen to the size of a large potato, my tongue is now more plum-sized. HOORAY! We women do the most bizarre things when faced with crippling emotional upheaval and impending midlife crises... More on that some other time.
I hope y'all are still fighting the good fight out there! Keep at it! This is a battle that CAN and WILL BE WON!!!
