emoticon & emoticon to the team.

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your daughter. I'm sure you've had a rough road but it sounds like you've made a little progress. It's all about taking small healthy steps and building onto them. It helps to create a healthier lifestyle to help keep the weight off.

Stress can really make it hard to lose weight, no matter what kind it is. Just know that you're not in this alone.

I hope that you don't mind that friended you. I sounds like you can use the support.

Let me know if I can be of assistance.

Very sorry for your loss. Grieving can take a looong time so be gentle and patient with yourself. It is great that you are doing things to take care of you. Keep in touch with the team.

Physicians, physical therapist, and other health care providers will come and go, BUT only you can serve as your body's CEO

Hi Valerie,
I am truly sorry about the loss of your daughter emoticon and can only imagine how daily life must be. You have entered into a great supportive community and we believe in the slow & steady approach to healing ourselves physically, mentally, and emotionally. Focus on one small step forward each day and see how consistent you can be. Gradually add in another step and be sure to read up on articles. Should you feel yourself stumbling just give us a holler someone will be there to catch you.

Truly Welcome to your family. emoticon

hey there Valerie, soo sorry for your loss. I am sure you will find a buddy, maybe multiple buddies, teheheh, since this is the best team in all of Sparks. I have been active in 6 or 7 other groups and nothing compares to The Slowest Loser. You will find in very short order that this group is very friendly and supportive. All you will need to do is report in any of the conversation threads and ask and you shall receive. I look forward to hearing more from you and becoming great friends. You are a very smart woman to realize that you need to shift your attention now to yourself. I know you will have success in this group. hugs, cheryl

Hi Valerie...not sure the role of a buddy but I can sure be one! Tried to go to your page but it was set to private. I too am so sorry for your loss. When my daughter was little she was in and out of hospitals with surgerys and that in itself is exhausting. I cannot imagine the pain you must be experiencing in losing her. My heart goes out to you. I have three kids and if I had of had a fourth (girl) I was going to name her Tiffany. I didn't...but my son married a Tiffany! : )

I'm Valerie and I am new to this forum. My youngest daughter died 5 months ago and I thought I would feel better if I worked on me. It has been 6 yrs since Tiff started getting sick. I was doing good and lost ten pounds. I have since put it all back on which is adding to the depression. Everyone one says take it "SLOW" but I don't think they mean reverse. I could use a buddy.
