I've blogged a bit recently about falling off the horse. It's been a rough several weeks for me, with major life challenges to my health, my marriage and my husband's health. Life has felt very uncertain and very out of control.
I'm feeling extreme gratitude, however, for the incredible community I've connected with, both here on Spark and through the Inside Out Weight Loss Yahoo Group. As a child, in a world without the internet, having weight and eating issues was a very lonely, shameful plight. But today, when I go through something, good or bad, I'm able to learn from the wisdom of the group and it gives me an instant boost.
So thank you to everyone for your support, your encouragement, your insights, and your generosity of time and spirit. The comments, the goodies, the suggestions, the shared experiences, the empathy, and the warm wishes have done so much to help bolster my spirit.
I have a lot of healing to do, both physical and mental, and I take great comfort in knowing that though it's not going to happen instantaneously, at least along the way I can connect with such a wonderful support system.
