    Okay, so I haven't been on for a month and only just started losing after first gaining 2 pounds. I have started a diet that seems to be working okay with my body and my energy level. I have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and anemia so I am trying to work my food schedule around that a bit too. I was very encouraged by all the comments and SP goodies that was sent my way. It really did encourage me NOT to give up! So I committed to giving a 5 pound bag of flour or sugar to the local food pantry. A kind of physical reminder. So I had 2 family deaths and their deaths were so senseless and I realized I was guilty of the same things and decided I didn't want to die that way. So I just went to the first funeral on Monday and my next one is out of state and next week. I figured while the details were still fresh in my head I would start making the changes slowly and work up to a steady schedule. I have graduation parties, holidays, carnivals, etc coming up and I decided ...helllloooo.. I would always have that in my life, but I COULD choose to accept and adapt so that is what I am doing. Thank you all for the encouragement, I hope I can be there in your court too someday when You need me.
