100 lb. Club - Love for anagram

I received a very sad PM today--letting me know anagram's husband has passed away. I know she hasn't posted here much recently, due to taking care of him, but I think it would warm her heart to see all our good wishes. Mr anagram and I shared the same kidney disease, the one I am doing a clinical trial for, to help find a cure. She has been a wonderful source of support for me, as well as a shoulder to lean on when things were going tough.
I wish you & your family peace at this rough time. I know how much your husband was loved by all his wonderful family. I am glad he is not in pain, but wish he could still be w/all of you :grouphug: Please let us know if you need anything!

Oh, no, I'm so sorry for your loss, Anagram. As SAPF said, it's good that he's no longer in any pain, but it's so hard to lose him. Please accept my deepest sympathies.

Oh, anagram, I'm just so, so sorry to hear this news. My heart is breaking for you. I too have lost a partner, and I have an idea of the pain you're experiencing. I want you to know that you will get through this. You know he's in your heart. My thoughts and very best wishes are with you......I'm just so sorry for your loss. I'm sure you know, having shared in his battle with illness, that when you engage in that kind of battle you come to most keenly appreciate the greatest gifts life has to offer -- so you must realize that he had to have been very grateful for your love and support. We're all here for you. :hug:

Thanks, SAPF, AND ALL, for your kind expressions of sympathy. It's been rough and I'm just dragging myself into my new life. I was super blessed to have this guy for so long - I'd have liked to have him longer, of course but I don't feel like he's REALLY left me. The love and kindness he showed me are enough to last me for the rest of my life.
Now on the good news side, I didn't gain much during the last seven months. In fact at first I lost a bit and got to onederland finally. Right now I'm a few pounds above that but considering everything I don't think I'm restarting from a bad place.
And restart I have. Slowly. tiny steps. Portion control is still not in check but I walked yesterday, I walked today and have been putting lots of fruit and salad back into my life. It'll take a while, I'm sure, until I feel "fit" again but I'm still far ahead of where I was a few years back.
Will have to catch up w/all the new faces and lots of things that have happened while I've been away but that will be a pleasure to do.

Oh Anagram, I didn't see this thread (it was posted while I was away). I'm so sorry about your hubby and appreciate how you can feel blessed for having spent so many years together. I'm sure the happiness you shared brought comfort to him and I can see from your words that it will always do so for you as well. :hug:
I admire you for finding the strength to take those baby steps and concentrate on making your life a healthy one. Bless you. :)

Anagram, you and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. I'm so very sorry for your loss.

Thanks, Chicks! It's two weeks today and I'm hoping the first two weeks are the hardest.
Got back to the pool for exercise today. Sore tonight even though I took it easy. Been almost eight months. Also got in several walks the last few days. So I'm moving slowly in the right direction. Gained about eight pounds - I feel like it's a lot more than that probably because of the lack of the right kind of exercise. Really could have been worse, I guess. I think I'll concentrate on pool and walks for now, head back to taichilike exercises in another week or so.
Need to catch up on sleep too. Still waking in middle of night (but I get a lot done then ;) ). Food much better today.

Good to see you! :hug: Been thinking about you a lot.

I've kind of been out of the loop here lately. So sorry to here about your loss.
