Hi again

Amazing how when weight loss bloggers are gone for a while it's because they gained weight.  I had gained back about 14lbs not handling some stressful things but I have relost it again and some more.  I'm down 42lbs!!!  I have also chosen to stop eating animals in any form.  It's been about 6 weeks and I feel fantastic! 

Here's my little sister and I on her wedding day last weekend. 

I was so happy that day.  Not only was my sister marrying her "Man Friend" finally, my husband was going to come home from spending two nights in the hospital for blood clots in both lungs!
