Well I made it through

I didn't go crazy and eat bad stuff. I made it through. I guess I was just feeling emotionally torn up for my friend. I was angry because it isn't fair and I was feeling really raw and emotional. I mean I don't know her all that well but I know that her world has been completely shaken at its foundation right now, she has been devastated and there is nothing I can do to help. And then I feel a little guilty because I didn't know him at all, I don't know her that well what right do I have to be soo upset and rocked by this, you know?

My weigh-in this week is 193 lbs. The same as last week. Oh well it is better than a gain.

That's so so sad. I hope God will give them the strength to go through it.
Don't worry about the weight, atleast, it wasn't a gain. Keep doing fantastic as you always do!

I'm sorry to hear about your friend, and her loss. And I'm sorry that it threw you into that horrible mood, but still, it's good that you've delt with it now.. and can move on. I hope that your friends find a way to cope with it all, I can't even begin to imagine....

Glad you didn't gain anything, and you're right, it's much better than a gain. Keep up the work Hun, you're on the right track.

TC, you don't get to "pick" what's gonna rock your world in this life! I don't think this has as much to do with being "close" friends as it has to do with the tragedy of the situation. The fact that he was sO young, and it was sO unexpected... and the idea that if this can happen to him - HER - it could also happen to you ... or to any of us. It's scary! And that's enough to unsettle anyone. BUT... you are working your way through it. CONGRATULATIONS on not GAINING this week!

I just read the story - what a tregedy! That picture of him with his daughters tugged at my heartstrings. My thoughts and prayers go out to them - and you.

If you're an empathetic person, it makes sense for you to feel this way even though you don't know them very well. You care, and that's good.

At least you're aware that it's making you want to eat, and you can try to do something about it. Some people might obliviously think "i'm just so hungry and I don't know why" while they eat another bag of oreos.

I think you're going to be just fine :)

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
