As a new Member, I didn't expect to get any email replies to my "post" regarding the death of my father on Tuesday night; yet I had so many kind and caring thoughts and condolences. Many of you shared a sentence or two of your own experiences.
Since there were THAT MANY, I hope you'll understand if I thank you ALL here in this one single forum, as I doubt I will get to individual responses for quite awhile. Please forgive me for that.
Your advice and all the thoughts and things you shared indeed helped me in ways I am sure you understand.j
A special thank you to the one who gave me permission to take whatever time out that I need for myself to get back to feeling rested and good again. I needed to hear that from a stranger, who was truly a friend.
Keep up the good work on your weight loss/maintenance everyone. I have been skimming over what goes on with you all. It is so tough. But you're all much tougher!
Thanks again,
Megmuff

The way I see it, there is no need to get in touch with us individually. When people reach out with a posting like yours, I love to see that the group here shows support and empathy.
Reading this posting is already more than thank you enough.
I hope you are slowly getting a grip on the whole thing.

From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, and living healthy. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier!

WOW. You are awesome. You are also very funny. I like your quotes.
I feel humbled to see a person like you, losing THAT kind of weight, while I am struggling with 20 lbs for the 1st time in my life.
You are amazing and awesome.

Megmuff, I feel the way kingfeld does. I think this post is more than enough, and would definitely understand if there was no response. I hope you are doing well, and taking time to take care of your needs in this time of grief.
Stay strong, stay focused.

I appreciate the kind words. It's a life changing experience, to say the least. It is, however, not impossible. Once you find out what works for YOU, basically just keep doing that. Smile

Feel free to add me as a buddy if you like.
