I am very sorry to hear that you are going through all this. Stress like what you are going through can be a very big issue when trying to maintain (health more than weight).
Your are learning that your new, healthy lifestyle is not so well established yet that you can't fall back into old patterns but we all do.
I would suggest to do everything possible to not worry about weight gain but simply eat as many healthy, nutritious meals and spend time outside getting some sunshine and walking for exercise. At the same time consider a regular time of meditation/prayer, whatever matches your spiritual beliefs, possibly in combination with journaling. If you are fairly extroverted and benefit a lot from sharing with other people you could do an open journal on your sparkpage or you could join a support group for people whose family members are dealing with cancer in your community.
The power of eating clean, if possible organic food is also huge in helping to deal with cancer. Many cancer clinics have nutritional counselors now that will recommend a diet full of natural foods that equip the body to fight back against cancer and some people think this may be even more helpful than cancer drugs.
Don't try to handle this alone and don't neglect your own needs, because you can only be helpful to your husband if your take care of your own needs, too.
The best way you can honor your Mom is to do the best you can to live a full and healthy life. It's not always easy but just take one step at a time.
You are in my prayers.

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.
