I am back after a painful hiatus..
As I thought the end of last year was bad enough and was proven wrong the beginning of this year when my mother unexpectantly passed away.
I am struggling really hard because she was so young and I am trying not to let the emotions take over control and make me overeat or eat the wrong things..Its hard to not think my life is over along with hers..
It seems everytime I dieted she dieted, we were partners in that. I even showed her how to join sparkpeople so she could record things easier.
I know One Day At A Time, but do the days have to be so hard?

    I can't imagine how hard this is for you. So sad to lose a mom and friend! Hope your day is a blessed one even through the pain.

    My deepest sympathy on the loss of your Mom.

When the days are too hard to take one at a time, then take life one hour (and one meal) at a time... when that's too much to deal with, take it five minutes at a time!

Two years ago, I THOUGHT I was depressed and my life was "tough" - I WAS going through one of the most depressing times of my life - and then my son was killed.

I'm STILL struggling each day. I'm trying to accept that THIS is my new reality. There isn't a time when it won't be true, so this is my life now... and living our lives isn't a temporary thing.

Hang in there ~ Take care ~ Elizabeth

    I am so sorry for you with the loss of your mother. I am trying hard to reduce so I do not do that to my daughter. I want to be able to see her marry, have babies and achieve her goals. emoticon

It is hard to lose a mom, at any age. May your memories of her help inspire you to take care of yourself... as you know she would want you to do.

Thoughts and prayers are headed your way.
