    Today has been another day where in the past I would have turned to food. Sadly my friend's 3 month old baby died last night. I feel desolate that he has had his chance of life taken away but LL has made me strong enough to go on without consoling myself with food.
    I also think that now I am able to accept death more readily. Part of that is down to the CBT and becoming more accepting of things in my life, and part of it is down to my experiences through the last year. Tomorrow it will be 11 months since Nigel died.
    But in that time, with help from LL, I have become someone I want to be, rather than someone who is unsecure and feels badly about how they look all the time.

    I am so sorry to hear the devastating news about your friend's baby. My heart goes out to the family.

    I cannot imagine what you had gone through in the past year with the tragic death of your husband. I hope that you will stay strong and positive in the coming weeks.

    it's a funny old world, I have definitely realised that now. No point in trying to understand why things happen. Accept them and get on with your life. Your direction might change a little, but I know my goals are still there waiting for me.
