    Getting Back On Track Through The Grief


    Hi Everyone,

    It's been about a month since I posted my last iReport video. March was incredibly hard with the passing of my Aunt so soon after my Uncle. She was only 77.


    I would like to say that I've lost motivation, but I have more motivation to get healthy when faced with thoughts of my own mortality. However, it's hard to focus on weight loss through the grief - especially when I want to sleep all of the time and my heart hurts.


    As always, I am trudging along slowly and trying not to be so hard on myself. But summer is coming and I don't want to spend another summer indoors, hiding away because of my self-esteem issues.


    Take care,



    Here is a link to my lastest weight loss stats:


    And a post about my beloved Aunt:
