Sugar-free year continues!

Still continuing sugar-free -- the only drawback (as I mentioned in the previous post), is that because my appetite is dampened compared to what it used to be, in stressful situations it tends to almost disappear.

My wonderful boss recently announced he's leaving, and the resulting uncertainty at work has caused me to lose a few pounds -- I actually have to force myself to eat. I'm hoping some vigorous exercise today coupled with a delicious dinner tonight with friends will reverse this trend!

It's interesting -- I always used to wonder when reading Dickens, Austen, etc. how the characters could lose their appetites when stressed. Modern North Americans seem to do the reverse ("comfort eating"). Now I understand, as this is exactly what happens to me.
