Chickies, the last few months have been the very worst of my life. My son died unexpectedly in Aug. My dog died in Sept. A few weeks ago I was planning and bought tickets for a romantic New Years vacation with my husband until he told me he had someone else. It has been very hard and my old stand by, eating for comfort wasn't helping. I started watching what I eat and walking at the mall. I would go into Lane Byant and look around at the end of my walk. Last week the sales lady said to me "I'm sorry but I don't think we have anything in the store that will fit you". I almost kissed her!

I'm so sorry for all you've gone through but also amazingly in awe of how strong a person you must be to go through all that and still find the strength to do what you need to do for yourself! That's amazing and a lesson. Thanks for sharing this NSV! Which is also an awesome one in and of itself. You're in my thoughts and may your plan continue to be successful and your days get even brighter!

Thank you so much. I know this in the internet but it does mean a lot to me. I just decided since eating for comfort didn't help I didn't want to be sad and fat too! You have lost so much. How did you do it?

All about the kids. Like you, my weight loss revolves around my child. My daughter found me nearly dead August of 2012 and with her being only 3, that tramatized me. I resolved to never allow her to find me like that again. When people ask how I do it, I tell them all it takes is the right kind of motivation and mine is curently is 3-1/2 feet tall. You're son would be so very proud of you. Keep going, it is worth it, make it worth it, for him. :hug:

Lord, this thread has brought so many tears to my eyes, in a sad but happy kinda way.

Oh mama I am so sorry but thrilled that you are on the right track. What an inspiration you are! Do you count calories? I'm a bit scared of the hoidays. It is the first without my son. I would skip it but I don't want it to be harder on my girls.

Thank you mel! All of this has taught me not to sweat the small stuff that is for sure. I used to comfort myself with food. When my son died I only ate so people woudln't worry about me. Then I started to eat everything in sight one day and it just didn't make this kind of pain go away. I decided to just stop. Life is to short to fat ans sad. I may be sad for a long time but damn it I am not going to be fat! Thanks again.

Well you're amazing, know that! You may not think it right now but it takes real strength to grieve AND put on a brave face for your daughters AND deal with the husbands betrayal AND not turn to old habits of looking for comfort in the wrong places when you'd be entitled. You're inspiring. God bless you.

Regarding my weight loss it took nearly 3 years but I just kept pushing and counting my calories and picking myself up when I failed at being on plan. In the end it wasn't easy, and I wasn't perfect everyday, but over time, I managed more on-plan days than off-plan days and made it to goal.

Well to be honest I would probably still be eating for comfort if it still helped. But no amount of food or even chocolate can make this pain go away. I was a bit mad about that!
I too am counting calories and walking. I am still trying to figure it all out because some days I don't eat enough. I am happy with the food I eat, things I really like, but I am usually under my calorie limit. I don't have a lot of confidence in my choices yet and I am scared of the holidays.
