Look Great in 2008 (Week 7)

As I've been blogging, things have been very difficult at our house. Things are still difficult, and a family crisis of immense proportions has now erupted full force. It's been something that has been brewing for a while, and now it's reached nearly cosmic proportions.

Grief has an interesting way of taking away your appetite. I've lost 5.2 lbs since last week, and I haven't even been trying to diet. In the midst of all of the turmoil, food simply looks like cardboard, and even the idea of eating mostly makes me want to throw up. When I do eat, it sits in my stomach like a lead ball. Within 20 minutes, I end up running to the bathroom where it exits my backside in a huge explosion.

My weight this morning: 230.2. That's down a total of 26.8 lbs from when I started my diet back in April.

So, I guess there good things can come from great trauma and sadness in your life.

Sorry you're going through a family crisis. I was there myself earlier this year and had many of the symptoms you describe. :(

OMIGOSH, I am so sorry. I came here when I saw your huge loss at Tales/Scales, to congratulate you, but now I wanna hug you.

Losing weight is great, but I wouldn't want ANYONE to suffer and lose cause of being in such pain and grief.

God bless you bigtime. I hope a miracle comes to your family, and this can work out well.

I know I was depressed earlier this year--the summer--over some family issues. (Not those who live with me, but still, it hurts.)

Hugs from afar,
The Princess

Sorry you are going through a rough time. I know what you mean by not being able to eat. I am going through some tough times myself lately. At first it was very difficult to get meet my calorie intake goal each day because food just wasn't appealing.

I hope your weight loss continues-but I do hope things get better for you.
