Soup’s Up

I honestly don’t have a lot to say about today. Nothing significant really happened. I tried Vietnamese soup for the first time and I really enjoyed that. I suppose that’s a minor testament to the fact that my tastes are still developing, and it makes me glad that I am generally more willing to try different foods than I used to be. I think that’s a result of this journey: being open to liking a wider variety of cuisine. Yeah, like I said, not much to write about tonight…

And in a totally-unrelated-to-weight-loss-in-any-way side note: for anyone wanting a chance to win a free youth novel, all you need to do to enter is pop by the website of the publishing company I write my column for and leave a comment on the post titled Prized Friendships! It's open to anyone living in Canada or the United States. Good luck!
