I just went through an emotionally difficult pregnancy and lost my little boy a few hours after his birth. I am still healing and not able to exercise yet, but I am more determined than ever to lose weight and be healthy.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Losing weight and being healthy is the best gift that you can give yourself. Best of luck on your journey.

Good luck. This is a great site. It's not so big that you will get lost and everyone tends to be very helpful (unless you're selling something and dieting dangerously!)

I'm sorry for your loss. Be very gentle with yourself as you grieve.
DISCLAIMER: I expect to lose this weight over the next 6 months to 5 years. I'm not going to feel like a failure if it takes an entire month to lose 1 pound. I'm going to feel like a success when that happens! I may offer advice that I'm currently not taking myself. Feel free to call me on that!

Such trying times. I'm so sorry you have to face them. But this is a wonderful place to start to put yourself back together, a piece at a time. Making the investment in your health and well-being is an important part of recovery. I'm glad you're taking care of yourself.

My Condolences to you and your family
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die

I have to agree with gardengranny, the Doc should be the one telling you if you are ok to continue or stop taking a medication. You could end up doing more harm than good.
