I must admit that I've not lost much so far, but what is amazing is that I've not gained over the last 2 weeks. My only child, 22, English, is now in Ukraine, a country that is teetering towards civil war. To his face ( thank God for email, skype) I'm positive but realistic, I wanna let him fly, but inside myself, I'm suffering from a gnawing anxiety, I'm afraid for him. I don't smoke, take drugs or go with wimmin. My coping mechanism is food. So I've been comfort eating. The great news is that I'm now back on the wagon, but I could sure use some messages of support. I live alone, and have OA of the neck, lower back, shoulders and knees, which generates pain, frustration, fatigue, low mood. So I'm giving myself a good talking to and I aim to lose 2lb this week. Good luck to all fellow healthy eaters.
