40!!!!!

Tonight, it finally happened, I have hit the 40 lbs lost mark! Actually just over 40 since I lost 1.5 lbs this week, yay! It only took 4 weeks longer than I thought. The body is just a funny thing, it never does what you expect.


I decided for tonight, to pull out Jeannette Douglas's Pomegranates and Pears for the evening. I do have another Neighbourhood Round Robin to get to, but it was too late in the evening to go rifling through charts, magazines, etc to pick a house. Perhaps tomorrow evening I'll get to that.


On the fundraising front I've now managed to raise $555.00 for the CIBC Run For the Cure.
