Well this weeks weight loss is due to stress. My ds told me that he is moving out of our home Nov. 1. emoticon I am happy for him but I have been crying for 3 days emoticon . Change is always hard for me and even though I know that he is a young man he will always be my baby and I will miss him. He is so sweet though, when he came home today he told me he loved me and that I was the best mom and how much he appreciated everything I did for him and that my fear of not see him would not be, he calmed me down and I love him so much. He's excited and I'm excited for him. Change is hard but change will happen whether you want it to or not. I have to adapt. On a positive note I did not overeat in fact I really had no appetite at all and I did continue to exercise. My dd and dh have been wonderful too, they put up with my teary state for the last couple of days. I do feel better after talking to ds and now am thinking clearer this is not a negative but a positive we can now make trips to visit and explore a different city. It could be fun! We will see.

Also I had a doctors appt this week which got canceled so I now have to wait another week to see her (more stress, I hate waiting)

Wishing you all a wonderful week! emoticon

    Congrats on your loss and all your success! Sorry to hear that your son moving out is so hard and I can only imagine. My kids are 8 and 7 and I couldn't even begin to imagine at this point.

    emoticon emoticon On the weight loss!!!! Especially that you did not eat in such a stressful situation. I have the empty nest, but it makes it all so much sweeter when they visit. It was not really until my kids were gone that I realize how great of friends I am with them.
    How far away is he planning on moving?
    As far as the doctor's appointment. Just think you have one more week to even get healthier before you go! Prayers for a mama's broken heart.

    So sorry! I can't imagine how difficult that is. Normal part of life but such an adjustment for a mom. He sounds like a sweet boy. I am sure your relationship will remain close. It's best to look on the positive side as you are. Congrats on the weight loss. emoticon

    Congratulations on the weight loss. Hugs on the DS change-I have 3 children and my baby is the boy-he's 15, sweet spirited and I do not look forward to the day he will leave the nest!

    You poor dear, that is hard, but it will be an adventure for you and your son. Like you said, you can visit him in another city and really have fun there. We try our best to raise them up to take off from the nest and be efficient in taking care of themselves. You have done a good job mom.
    Great job on the weight loss and exercise, and not letting the stress take over your eating habits.

    Congrats on the weight loss! You are doing so great! Seems like every week, you have a loss.
    I definitely understand about kids leaving the nest. DD1 turns 21 today, and even though she has already moved out, she is now wanting to move out of state! I am really having a hard time with that one!
    I am proud of her independence, but I sure am going to miss my baby!

    Life goes on; we raise them to care for themselves. I was pleased when both my sons at ages 26 & 27 finally flew the coop. But DW, a mother hen, also cried when one went into the Navy & the other FINALLY got himself a good full time job. With that, I send you lots of hugs, Earl emoticon He loves his mom & will do well - Don't fret.
