Welcome to the 100lb. Club, mejones
. I'm glad you feel comfortable here.
Condolences on your loss.
I nursed my mother through terminal illness, and I gained another 30+ pounds following her death. Along with other major changes in my life at that time, it sent my OCD into overdrive, including compulsive eating, so I know where you're coming from. Good for you for not bingeing over the last week. It does get easier.
Post away! It's a great place for support and encouragement.
