I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Mother's can hold that place of unconditional love that will be deeply missed, and it is the time to allow yourself to grieve in your own way, and with permission to care for yourself in every way you need to. Take all the time you need. Your teams will be here when you are ready to reconnect.
My deepest condolences on the death of your mother. Now is the time to grieve and work through all of the emotions you are feeling but remember to take good care of yourself, too. As a mom, I know I would want my daughter to be healthy, happy and fully alive; something tells me your mom would want all of those things and more for you...
Hello, i am so sorry to hear about your mother. Yes, this is a good place to vent. I am not a very commited person when it comes to changing the way I way eat and exercise. Its a new year, so maybe things will get better. I lost my grandmother when I was a child and I still miss her everyday. Oh, by the way, my name is Betsy and I have two kids. Mason 19 and in his first year of college and Cady Rose, she is 9 and in 4th grade. Stay strong. You get lots of love and encouragment here. Good Luck!!!!
I started my diet last week and lost 4 pounds. However, the loss of my mother on 1/8/11 caused me to use food for comforting. I won't beat myself up for that. It is what it is. The grief is enormous. After this week I will begin the Spring semester and am determined to get back on track. I need time and encouragement.
Thank you for reading this. It was good to get my feelings out.
