My mom died on Monday...

daloverlymedaloverlyme Member Posts: 575 Member Member Posts: 575 Member
My mom died, and I am struggling right now. She was pretty young. I won't lie... I don't want to do this right now... I feel like I have no reason to continue trying. I am lost. I really could use some motivation and support. I am down 80 lbs so far but have gained 3 back. I am so off track.

    Hugs to you. I cannot imagine being in your shoes. I can feel the love you have for your mom. Be kind kind to yourself and I hope you’re able to find comfort. 80lbs is an amazing accomplishment. Your mom must’ve been so proud of you. Keep making her proud.

    I'm so very sorry. Oh sweetie, you are going through so much sadness right now. It is all probably very surreal at this point. My mom passed away 6.5 years ago and it was the toughest time in my life. Some days I didn't even think I wanted to get out of bed but I had two very young kids to look after. It actually helped to not completely get swallowed up in my grief. Just take it one day, one moment at a time. I wish I could take away your pain for you. I will pray for you. God helped me get through my grief. (((Hugs)))

    I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my own mother when I was 25, and it's a very difficult thing to get through, but you can and you will. Take the time you need to grieve, but please do not give up on yourself and how far you have come. I am sure your mom was very proud of you!

    In January, my mum passed away as well. She, too, was quite young. She had been signed up to run a half marathon in March which I ran in her place, but after that, I just completely stopped taking care of myself. I've finally started doing exercise again and looking after what I eat, but honestly, the immediate effect was that it just didn't matter. You need to take some time for yourself and just concentrate on your emotions. All you can do is try to keep taking care of your body, but don't put too much pressure on to be perfect during this time. Take a few weeks to process everything and then if you feel ready it will be time to continue your journey. I'm so sorry for your loss, and I send you all the love in the world <3<3

    I'm so sorry...Give yourself a little time to get through the next few weeks. This is a very rough time. You will feel better again, in time. Take the time to grieve and to remember and to heal. When I lost my dad a year ago, I gained a little back, and I lost it again. 3 lbs is a drop in the bucket considering how much you've lost. Invest in your health now so that you can live a long, healthy life. I'm pretty sure that would make your mom happy. Hugs.

    I know what you are going through. I lost my mom a few years ago and I still have bad days, although it does get easier with time. I am so so sorry that you are having to go through this.

    I also gained weight when I lost her. Food was comforting. But it didn't bring her back to me. Try to stay on track on the days you have energy for it, and be gentle with yourself on days you struggle. Your mom would want you to be happy, whatever that means to you.
