Well done!! You're amazing, and isn't it great when you can change the weight obsession into a health obsession? I remember the very first time I said "I love my body" and meant it, I had just finished reading the book by Dr Cabot ( http://www.liverdoctor.com ) and was starting to see how incredible this body is that we're given. I suddenly realized that loving your body isn't about what you see in the mirror (even though seeing your eyes get brighter and your skin glow is a GREAT plus), it's about giving it what it needs to continue to be good to you. Your body obviously loves you unconditionally, and it's truly wonderful when you begin to give back.
in terms of the flavour, how about putting the drops in a strong flavoured herbal tea like ginger or peppermint? I just knock them back with a little water and I think I kind of enjoy the clove flavoured burps so you might just get used to it, but otherwise a tea might be better, or even a bit of juice and water.
