If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

Jennifer,
So sorry for your loss. The loss of a child is probably the worst. Our 24 year old son died in 2006. Feel free to talk to me about it.

Jennifer....I'm so sorry to hear that you lost your baby. That's a tough one to recover from. But it sounds as if you are on the right path, and you'll get there. Be kind to yourself, and as Cosmic Energy said, give in to the grief when you need to. Take the deep breaths , and let the sad feelings go as you breathe out. I can't think of any better advice. This too will pass...slowly and painfully...but it WILL pass. Keep busy. That helps. If there is a grief group offered in your area, take it. You will meet others who are grieving, too, and nobody understands better what you're going through than someone who is going through the grieving process themselves.

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your baby. Steroids are rough. Make you hungry, puff up from water and an emotional wreck. Glad you are on the healthy path again. It 's hard when dealing with grief. Try to be easy with yourself. Focus on one thing at a time. Either diet or exercise. The emotions would just come washing through. Training myself to let them roll through. Acknowledge them but don't hang on to them. Realize they will come and go. Life will get better. Give into them when they come. Resisting them always seems to bite you in the butt. Breathe into them, breathe some more. Breathe out and let them go.


Cosmic energy of light and love

Hi everyone. My name is Jennifer. I've been an on-again-off-again Sparkpeople member for years now and it has helped me in so many ways. After being hospitalized for about a month, being pumped full of steroids to gain about 25lbs and losing my baby girl in the end my days are always a surprise. I find it extremely difficult to get out of bed some days, let alone exercise and eat anything other than jelly beans. My husband feels better after exercising, especially after gaining a big ole belly from low testosterone issues. So here I am...back in the saddle again. My baby girl would have been 1 month old tomorrow so I'm running out of time for that little mother nature push to drop the steroid weight gain. I came home from the hospital at 183 and just last week went down to 178. All from putting down the Easter candy! I wonder how Greek yogurt freezes. Perhaps that could replace the tub of icing I ate a couple of weeks ago! But now I'm ready. Had my healthy breakfast and I'm ready to head out the door. Let's do this!
