Hi Thank you for your supportive words. I am reading these post, b/c I also know that support is so important from others - including those we don't personally know. I joined WW before as well, and intellectually understand the emotional eating component. I just need to reconnect the intellect and emotions together again. Then I'll move forward, so far so good....One day at a Time.
Namaste and Peace

I'm sorry for your loss. Those first holidays right after losing your mother are hard because the holidays won't ever be the same. Let me know if there is anything I can help you through. My loss isn't that recent, but two years ago.

Comfort can come in the form of something other than food. It was a hard lesson for me to learn after 50. My warm hug is sometimes a hot soak in the tub. Crying just helps take the makeup off in a bath and you come out feeling quite better. I lost my mother in September 2 years ago and it was the following Thanksgiving that I joined Weight Watchers the Tuesday before the day the food made the world stand still, lol. The rest is history.

Yes, everyday is a new day. It's a good reminder...."One day at a Time". I am going to start reading the emotional eating articles as well. Thank you all and have a great day.

As Jennifer Hudson, spokesperson for WW, and singer puts it -- It's a new dawn, it's a new day.

Hang in there! Emotional eating articles on SP are helpful. I've read many of them.

I enjoy reading the comments. I luv Footprints in the Sand. It was on a handout at my Mother's funeral in September. The holiday seasons can be challenging when we lose a loved one. Eating appears to be more comforting. I am trying to continue my exercises and smaller portions. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas (or which ever Holiday you celebrate).
Namaste
