I found the picture from two years ago.

I was right. It was two years ago that Sam Venable was keynote speaker at the conference. Below is the picture that was taken then:

Even my hair is smaller! Sam hasn’t changed a bit.

Here’s one of him and the conference organizer:

Sam and Maxine

Once again, click!

I’ll update about today later. Bye, y’all!

    Wow, you look so great, Tommie! Ya know, I don’t think I’ve seen a picture of you before. You kinda do look a *little* like my mom….well, if she were the same weight as you. LOL!

    Love ya, RawMom!

    Thank you both, Annie and Cindy! I’m working on getting the rest of the pictures back up that didn’t transition to the new domain when my son-in-law moved it. I’ll let you know when I get some more done. I’ve gotten through part of November 2005. There is an assortment. They aren’t all of me.

    Oh my goodness! That is a very dramatic difference, I can see why your co-workers and people at the hopsital are giving you such a hard time. You look wonderful, so tan! And I think most importantly, you look happy.
    Thanks for sharing these with us.

    I appreciate your appreciation, Leah! My tan isn’t going to last when I’m unable to get out in the sun. Maybe I can get some walking in this week…do you suppose? I am happy. That’s another thing that eating raw does for you–it improves your (my) outlook on life! So many things are related to how we eat. It’s amazing!

    It’s always nice to be able to look at pictures that show so much positive change. It’s nice to see you looking so healthy and vibrant!
    “In joy” your journey.

    Thank you, Terry. And Gwendolyn! I wish I knew! I’ve tried everything I know to do that doesn’t involve pesticides but nothing works. Let me know if you find something. A person could get rich…

    Rewrite on how I feel. I’ve felt HORRIBLE today. All day long. Maybe tomorrow will have a different tale to tell.
