My Dad died on April 2nd, unexpectedly. I thought I'd gotten things figured out over the past year, made so much progress, actually making it to within a pound or two of my goal weight. But wow, can life hit us hard. I had no idea how losing a parent would affect me. On top of that, I've gone through a huge amount of other stress in life, including a long separation in my marriage. I can't believe I've allowed myself to gain my weight back, after SO much hard work. I'm here because Diet Bet was the first place where I found real success, meeting small goals each month, and I know I can do it again, even though I'm upset that I have to.
