1. If you eat less and exercise more and drink lots of water, weight loss happens. And it's a lot easier to commit to than fad diets.
2. Speaking of food, processed sugar is a killer. I have not had one speck (and I mean one speck - and oh boy, did that kill my self control at first) of processed sugar for about a month and a half, and I have never felt better. I have so much more energy, and have lost a couple unneeded pounds.
3. Jonathan Crombie (Gilbert Blythe) meant more to me than I realized. As I posted to Facebook when I learned of his untimely death, rarely am I legitimately saddened by a celebrity death - but oh no, that is not the case with Gil. Anne of Green Gables has been a massive part of my life ever since I was a little girl, and it actually seems like a personal friend has passed away. It's strange, but understandable, I suppose. (Especially since most if not all of my standards for acquiring a male and the quality of said male have been based on his character for quite a while.) I don't quite have words at the moment to describe what I'm feeling about this.
