My heart is heavy with the passing of my Mother. Last Thursday was one of the hardest days of my life. I have never seen anyone die. My sister, my husband and I were with my Mom when she passed. I don't think she wanted to leave us. She fought to the end. Thank you to everyone who left words of comfort and support on my last blog. It's nice to know there are people who think of you during difficult times:-)
In the days since I lost my mom I've struggled with my food. A part of me thought if I ate whatever I wanted and as much as I wanted I would feel comforted. What was I thinking! I realized today that no matter how much I eat, it won't fill the emptiness my mom's passing left behind. Now I have 6 more pounds to lose..sigh. So today I am getting myself back on track. Today I am concentrating on healthy meals and eating fruit and veggies as snacks. I know I can reach my goals and eating right is the first step on my journey to a healthier me!
