Despondent over Prop 8 passing

I share the near-universal dismay of my friends at the hateful Proposition 8 passing. It sickens me that so many of my fellow Californians are eager to relegate other human beings to second-class status purely on the basis of their sexual preference. I don't think I can stomach reading any more election news or reactions to it for awhile.

Feelings: Not feeling great today, mentally or physically. Depressed about Prop 8, and have menstrual cramps and sniffles; spent much of the day on the couch drinking tea. Happy that my weight loss is going much faster than expected (3 1/2 pounds in four days), though it's likely just water weight. I'm liking eating till I'm full and not feeling deprived. Also happy to make and share a healthy dinner tonight with my friend Kelly who lives over the hill from me.
