Hi ladies!

I know I said with the new year would come a new commitment to the end of my journey, however sadly, my dear little Canaan finally lost his battle and passed away New Years Day. Although Canaan really did not get to live his life and spent his time here miserable, I'm still at a loss for words. Four years simply doesn't seem long enough. I try to take comfort in the fact that he is no longer suffering, but I can't help but longing for my dearest Canaan back. For you ladies that have been around awhile, you know how big of a struggle this was for him and for myself. And I know logically, I should be elated that my precious boy is now doing all the things you couldn't do on this earth. But selfishly I find it little comfort. I'm really trying to do my best but I've simply feel empty. I can honestly say that finding Canaan that morning was the most indescribable feeling a mother can ever feel. It's like all of a sudden all the warmth is drained from your soul and your heart simply withers. We finally laid him to rest Tuesday on a rather frigid day and now the healing process begins.

I just wanted to let you gals know why I wasn't around after all my big talk last month. It's a very difficult time for me and my boys, and please pray, that I can maintain my sanity and find some peace. And MsP thanks for the message, I appreciate it and for those of you that spread the word, thank you as well. I really wanted to get on here sooner and let you ladies know, but I'm such a wreck right now, I'm doing good to even take my next breath. Anyways, I love you ladies and keep up the great work. And please, treasure your days with your kids and loved ones.

Delphi My heart goes out to you sweetie. I know you will have a rough road ahead of you, My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. If you need anything or if there is anything I can do please don't hesitate to let me know. I love you!

LouisaH 01-07-2010 07:19 PM

Poor baby. I know there are no words to console that sort of pain, and I hope you can keep a healthy frame of mind. Dealing with something this hard makes losing weight look easy.

May happy memories soon replace the pain.

Nella 01-07-2010 07:32 PM


Losing a child is something that no one can unerstand unless they have been there. I hope that you can find peace and solace in knowing that he is in a better place. Take all the time you need to grieve. I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say, if there is anything we can do, please just let us know.

My thoughts will be with you and your family.

Shrinking Girl 01-07-2010 09:23 PM

My thoughts and prayers are with you. I wish there was something I could do to ease the pain you're feeling. Please know we're here for you if you need us.

Oh Delphi! My heart aches for you and your family. My prayers for you as you grieve your loss. We are all here for you.

jellofer2 01-07-2010 09:30 PM

Wow, You don't check in for a few days and you miss so much. I got all things straight with the doctor and am cruising on plan.

Staying at 239.0 this am. Had alot of salt yesterday. So, today I was POP. Felt great. Figured out my calories and protein for today. Still no even 1200. But I have burned over 3000 cals today. So, need to get a bit more in before bed. Not sure how to pull that one off, but I will figure it out. But then that may burn some calories. Anyway, great workout with Physical therapy today. Got to finally run. only 1 minute bursts, but still it was running. We have a 5k coming up in May and I am gonna run it.

The biggest loser challenge at work has gotten so large. The 1st place prize is well over $300. Amazing. I am so excited about it.

I will post personals later. Must get more protein.

Love and light to all my peeps, especially Delphi.

nellonello 01-07-2010 10:51 PM

Delphi - You and your family will definitely be in our prayers. Your strength over these last months has been amazing and I know that you are strong enough to get you and your family through this.

Delphi-I'm glad you're still there, taking on day at a time. Love to you from all of us.

jellofer-That's a heck of a calorie burn. Good job, but get some cals so you're not starving. I'll never understand how people struggle getting enough cals. I've got cals on a waiting list...just ready for me whenever I have room for them! LOL

A wonderfully OP day here. That is impressive since I helped my kids make graham cracker gingerbread houses with frosting, candies, etc. and ate exactly one m&m the whole time. I realize it's a bit late for this project, but Christmas was so busy and since we're at the IL's I had to be careful not to mess up their house since they hosted some of the festivites. Now we have a bit more freedom, so we did it now. We're easy going folk who enjoy this stuff whenever time allows. It was fun watching the kids enjoying the creative process and I kept telling myself, "I'm not hungry. I don't need this stuff." And miraculously I listened to myself!

LouisaH 01-08-2010 03:29 AM

Jellofer, I would be willing to give up a few of my extra calories for you--that's the kind of dedicated team player I am.

I was down 1.4 pounds as of yesterday morning, but tonight I hosted a little party with drinkin' buddies I hadn't seen for a while, and didn't even attempt to count calories, but did attempt to regulate quantity and drink water between bevvies. I did get in a good hour of aerobics today. Tomorrow will tell.

MeowMix 01-08-2010 09:40 AM

Checking in with my first weigh in for the month.

Down 2 pounds!! Woot!

2/8 pounds down.

Scatterheart 01-08-2010 11:15 AM

I'm jumping at the chance to join this team late.

My goal for January: lose 10.8 pounds.

Aiela 01-08-2010 11:27 AM

Checking in late (because I just came back to this site today, yay for getting back on track!)

My goal for the rest of January will be to climb my minutes per week of exercise up to 240, and then stay there until Feb, when I shoot for a higher goal!

Week 1 (12/28-1/3) : 158 mins
Week 2 (1/4 - 1/10) : ??? More, I hope!

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 02:44 PM.
