"NOW--25 pounds lighter and still feeling GREAT...."








Greetings, here are a few photo's that my DH took this week of me since I have lost the NOW 25 pounds. Just wanted to post a few pics as promised :)

On the hair tip, I am almost at my 4 year mark, "I can't believe it!" In July, I will be Sisterlocked 4 years, "boy did the time fly." I am still loving my locks!!!!!

Ally girl, thanks!!! If you read my previous post titled, "15 down and 5 plus more to go" it details how I lost the weight. You can do it girl!!!! Regarding my hair, I am approaching my 4 year locaversary in July and I am still amazed at the growth potential of my hair since it has been in Sisterlocks. I started off with a TWA w/1 1/2 to 2 inches of hair and I look at my hair now and I AM AMAZED!!!!

I have missed your site! I clicked here and I am smiling in spite of myself. You look as my son would say "gorgeous"! I love when my four year old uses that word. It always makes me smile because he is using it correctly.

I recently lost 30 pounds and I gained 6 pounds back, now with God's continued help I am on my way to losing the last 25 pounds. I will need to get some of your sweets recipes, because that is my weakness and Blue Bell's Chocolate Brownie Overload Ice Cream is not helping my situation, but it does taste good, Good, GOOD!

My e-mail address is rjqueen10@gmail.com thanks in advance!
