The other good news is I know I've lost some weight, I haven't been able to weigh myself but some pants which fit me in Utah are already starting to get loose enough that I need a belt. My goal is to be able to get onto a frisbee league in the summer and be able to keep up with everyone else.
The difference in life more me has been like night and day from Utah to here. It's really nice to experience new things. Still I hope everyone is doing well and I'll let you know when I will come out and visit.
