I have finally been kicked in the butt. My father, only 55 years old, died February 16, 2012 of pancreatic cancer. He was diagnosed only a month and a half before he passed away. Before he left this world, he reminded me that life is a beautiful gift. He truly was the one person I could trust, count on, and confide in. He gave great advice, and he always told me how much he loved me and how proud of me he was. It truly broke my heart and soul when he died.

I have been sitting back in the passenger seat watching my life slip away. I have always had a little "extra" weight on me....but right around when my dad died, I was at my heaviest. I am going to lose weight for my dad and myself. I want to accomplish so many things for him...because he didn't get the chance to....and this is the first step in accomplishing those goals.

    Hi, just read your update and I am so sorry about your father. You can make the healthy changes to your life and you will find the way to gradually get the weight off with hard work and determination. Just take it one step and one day at a time. emoticon emoticon

    thanks so much for your thoughtful comment on my blogpost. I was worried that maybe I should have just kept ignoring him except that the last text that i received from him he basically said that he didn't want to share his life with anyone (my life is like a pizza right now and I don't want to cut a slice out and share it) and I didn't want to just keep waiting while he made up his mind whether or not he wanted to date me.......so I dont' know. Thanks for your support, I appreciate it.
