A Creature of Chemicals

"You've lost weight."

"One kind of stress puts it on, another takes it off. I am a creature of chemicals."

I was reminded of this quote from Ender's Game this morning, as I reflected that I ate one bite of food and some sugar-free gum yesterday, without any deliberate intention not to eat. Well...I can stand to lose 10 lbs or more, even though I would prefer to do it another way.

isn't that exhausting, in a way, when you're too busy to even notice that you need food. FOr me, this usually results in a tres nasty sugar crash. Ugh.
