Be kind to yourself and allow yourself time to grieve for both your losses. Exercise will help you and its important that you do try to get support. Perhaps you have a trusted family member or friend who you could talk with. If not, you could find out if there is counselling and/or support groups in your area. You can even find a forum online (such as this one). Try not to spend too much time alone and take care of yourself. Spring is here...a time for hope and new beginnings.

Things that help with my motivation, is seeing something positive at the end. If you have time, read this article, it may help.
In 1984, my boyfriend was killed in a car accident before I could tell him that I was pregnant. Just a couple of weeks later, I had a miscarriage. I was devastated. I stayed in bed for 2 weeks after that.
Today, I have six children, two are twins, that range in age from 26 to 9 years of age. I also have a grandson whom I adore who is almost 8 months old.
I've lost many family members, including a brother, sister, parents, aunts, uncles, niece... I know about loss.
I can tell you this much... Things WILL get better.

I never thought of that being a possibility, either. Thank you so much, I will definitely be looking into it further.
After reading your post, my immediate worry is that you may be experiencing postpartum depression. When I had a miscarriage years ago, nobody bothered to tell me it was possible to suffer from postpartum. It caused me no end of trouble!
Talk to your doctor about it. Hopefully, your lack of motivation can be easily dealt with!

So just a few short weeks ago, I became single (yet again) and decided to take control of my life again. After gaining about 20 lbs of my "happy" weight, I was left alone and heartbroken. I've been trying my hardest to stay focused on myself and my own goals, but it's been such a struggle, and I've lacked moral support from a recent miscarriage. It's hard to stay positive through this time in my life, but I've been trying to keep busy with any free time I have with going to the gym, although, most of the time, my bed and computer seem a little more friendly. If there's any advice out there for staying motivated, or getting the heck over this, I would appreciate the input! xoxox
