I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your friends. Everything must seem really overwhelming at the moment.
Don't beat yourself up. You are not a bad person or an unhealthy one because you may find yourself stress eating for comfort. This is something every single one of us have had to cope with ourselves. Do the best you can. I give all new members one piece of advice and it's this,"Don't look at good health or weight loss with an all or nothing mentality". If the only healthy thing you did for yourself today was drink 8 glasses of water, that's still a step in the right direction.
Good health isn't "all or nothing". every little bit really does add up. Remember, you don't have to be perfect to be healthy. All things in moderation. Try to be mindful of your portions, but don't beat yourself up if you're not perfect.
Be kind to yourself as you would to others. When things settle down, you can be more diligent then. For now, like I said, you do the best you can.
Take baby steps, literally and figuratively.
