Started out the year with a 23 pound loss...moving along slow but steady until mid April then life dealt me some blows I WOULD NEVER have expected. My husband who is late stage COPD was hospitalized from April 15 - May 6th, during that time we nearly lost him twice and one doctor told us to call hospice. In a way we owe that doctor, it made my husband so mad he fought harder than ever to live...and HUNDREDS of people were praying for us. God gave me such strength during that two week period I didn't think I had anymore fight left in me. Then three days later my faith, and strength were tested beyond my Father a rock in my life, a devout Christian, a loving husband, dedicated father and grandfather, honorable retired military man, committed suicide. NO ONE especially my mom and I could have ever thought this possible. There were extentuating circumstances...sleep issues, medication issues, we are still trying to come to grips with all of that. In the face of this tragedy and my husbands ordeal my son and I gained all our weight loss back, more importantly I quit caring about my own health....Don't get me wrong God once again gave me strength to get through, and continues too. But in processing my grief I fell into a deep depression and as a pattern of life I turned to food and not just God. It always makes me feel worse, so here I go again around the mountain learning this lesson among many others from this pain and suffering....Be good to yourself, take care of yourself even in hard times...Today I lost 6 lbs of the 12 I had gained back.....God is good, grief is still here, but I am learning to deal with it better, and being good to myself again is a part of the healing.....
