I was doing so well, and then I found out I was pregnant.
And then I lost the baby.
Now I don't know what to do - I have no desire to track my calories, nor to exercise.
Every time I look at my body I think of the life that used to be growing inside and it depresses me.
The redness in my stretch marks is still there as well - mocking.

I don't know what i'm doing any more...

    I was in the exact same boat the end of March. I was 11 weeks when I lost our little one. It was a hard blow. I didn't feel like doing anything for about a month. I did walk a little bit here and there. I definitely wasn't tracking anything and wasn't really watching what I was eating. However, I realized that if I continued on that track that I would lose all the work I had accomplished so far. So I've got back into my groove and trying to lose what I had gained back. It is hard to care for your body when you feel as if it has betrayed you....I completely understand that. Give yourself some time to absorb all of it and to grieve appropriately and don't rush back into working out or anything like that until you feel you are ready. I will definitely be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers as you continue to heal. One verse of scripture that really helped me was Psalm 30:5 "Weeping may endure for the night, but JOY comes in the morning." In God's time, all will work out :)

    I am so sorry for your loss. I know it feels like everything is completely wrong, and in many ways, they are. Right now its just important that you do what you can when you can. Maybe don't focus on goals and things like that right now because compared to what you are gong through right now, they aren't as important. Right now focus on healing your heart, your mind and your body. Focus on loving relationships and just taking care of yourself mentally. Its a sensitive time right now and its ok that you are focusing elsewhere right now. You are not failing if you are doing whats right for you at this time. We will be here to cheer you on in any endeavor, even if its just keeping your chin up for now. Again, so sorry, and just take care!
