Hey swampies. Thought I'd stop in. May not be one of the oldbies but since I've been here several years now, figure I at least have a little recognition.

Well, one accomplishment I am particularly proud of is that I have almost completely cut out soda. It is now to a manageable, controllable level. I no longer fiend for it. Filters and bottled water abound. And unsweetened tea.

True I do allow an occasional soda or two, and some indulgence during holidays but it's to the point where it's almost too sweet to drink for me.

I actually feel better and less sluggish. I have lost almost 20 pounds.

Part of my motivation, admittedly, is my family history on one side is prone to type 2 diabetes and obesity. I had started showing some signs of serious health problems ahead. Remembering how some family members either became blind miserable amputees, or died of massive heart attacks...

I have decided to change my lifestyle because I don't want to end up like that.

I know this post was awhile ago, but in all seriousness: congratulations bro. Having lost a little bit more weight than that, I actually appreciate this quite a bit now.

We'll murder them all, amid laughter and merriment...except for the few we take home to experiment!
