LOSS: My weight and my Mom

Wednesday, November 09, 2016

I just wrote a whole blog...including pics...and it disappeared! I really wish Spark People would save drafts so that if you lose it you can come back to it and finish it....without it being sucked into cyber space.

I'm writing today to celebrate the fact that I finally reached my first goal. I have already set my next goal.
I know that my weight loss is not due to healthy living but due to the complete loss of appetite that I've had since mom died on Oct 27th. It will be a challenge to maintain this weight loss once my appetite returns.

I want to share some pics of my mom with you:

This first pic is how she looked in her mid 70's before her health vanished.

This pic is from last Christmas...It is a horrible thought to be without her for Thanksgiving, my birthday and Christmas. We will get through it somehow. But it won't be easy.

I don't have much else to add so I guess this will be a short post.

    I'm glad you had your mother to enjoy for so many years. My mother died from a heart attack at age 58 when I was a 17 year old Senior in high school. Not one kid at school had any sympathy for me at all, because , OMG she was 58 years old, so what did I think would happen to someone THAT old? Yes, to a group of 17 year olds, she was ancient.
