I have rejoined Sparkspeople after an almost 2 year absence. I have had a really rough past few months with the death of my daughter from cancer at the age of 45. Everything not nailed down went in my mouth. Obviously did not solve anything other than making my hips wider and my self esteem lower. I have also joined our local Weight Watchers 360 program to help me track my intake and to give me a focus and accountability to to me, my friends and the group. I stopped exercising last fall to spend as much time with my daughter as I could. When she passed away a month later, I did not have the energy to do anything. Now 2 months later, I have to get back on the horse so to speak so I can be there for her daughters, age 15 and 20. Joining the members of Sparkspeople again gives me the prospective that others are having the same battle as I, so I know I am not alone. Thanks to all of you for being out there for me and all the others who have stories like mine.
