Been Vegan ish (still use our hens eggs & use some cheese) for just two months now. Can't see going back now. DO get urges when I'm famished or stressed, though easily redirecting myself back to healthful foods.

After some stressful times, and now even more stressful times--- 3 friends contacted me on the same day to remind me to take care of myself, and I'm thankful they did. It had been nagging on me to start counting calories again and to make workout a priority; and they pushed me over the edge to do so.

Guess what, as soon as I started counting calories again = started losing .4 to .5 pounds per day. My mom is in the icu, has been for the past 11 days, and for the first 5 days she was in there I was all junk food vegan ish. Chips, soda and chocolate.... stress eating. Brain fog, not caring about what I put in my body. But our friends put me straight. Got to love the friends that love you enough to put you straight even in a crisis, those are the ones who know your bad habits emoticon and still emoticon love you.

    George, believe it or not, her struggle is still not over. She was just in again for 2 weeks for more surgery. Has been on IV antibiotics pretty much since Feb. Still needing prayers for her. She cannot walk now, which is just breaking my heart. She is so young (62). She has lost all movement in that shoulder, the joint is gone now, they had to cut it out due to infection, but thankfully she can still use her hand, and still has some range of motion from the elbow down. Am hoping and praying she can regain her ability to walk. Right now she can go just over 50 feet with a walker, though is very unstable.
