Small change is better than no change. I'll take it. Tonight at 8:50 was the one month anniversary of losing my best friend, my mom. I am actually okay. Spent the day with dad putting up the christmas tree. Decorations to come next week. We will get through this. In the meantime I am fixing a second Thanksgiving dinner. My kids were at their dads this year so we decided to have another one tomorrow so we could all be together. Mine and his. It is worth the effort. The menu is the same so I will be less tempted. Harold decided to make then cut into a pecan pie. Only 540 calories per serving. I did partake. Hey it is a hard day. I am not giving up. I am prepared for a gain but have not beat myself up over it. I will just do better tomorrow. Hey the window is open. It is a big step. Loves.


  1. well, only one month. Wow. I bet your mom would be so happy to know that you are taking control of your health! Big hugs and enjoy that day with your kids.

  2. Healing takes time. Cherish those memories of a wonderful Mom - there are people who don't have that blessing. She would want all of you to be close to each other during this holiday season and it sounds like you are doing the best you can. That's all we can do. Have wonderful Thanksgiving with your family.

  3. Thank you sweet friends ... I don't want my life defined by my loss of my mother. I don't want the only thing people see is me mourning mom. I want to live. I am much better today than I was a week ago. I can do this. :)
