    After a few weeks of being very poorly in hospital, my father in law died in the early hours of yesterday.
    I find that I really can't face SSing or dieting at this time. I will get back on track after the funeral next week. My FIL used to be a footballer for Hayes (now Hayes and Yedding).

    Sending sympathy to you. I know how you feel, my FIL died on Saturday night very suddenly. We have to wait for post mortem results and it looks like Wed next week for the funeral. Its a long wait.
    I was doind great SSing wed til sat, then ate sun and mon but i am now trying to get back into it again. Today so far so good but its only been a matter of hours.
    Wishing you strength in the coming days.

    Thank you Mollydog, my condolences to your family too. We are only human so it can't be the end of the world to have the munchies at the moment. Take care.

    My condolences as well. I'm currently helping my Aunt through the end stages of cancer so its something I have ahead of me. Just look after yourself during this time, you can always re-start when you feel up to it? Take care.

    My thoughts are with you, my MIL passed away last July, and my hubby is still finding it hard to even talk about her without crying, dont worry about the diet once you are ready you will know x

    Thank you IrishMum. You will need to be very strong. My Uncle has Myeloma so we are also going through a difficult time on my Mum's side too. You take care.

    Thank you K8te, it is really beginning to sink in now and I feel very tearful. I'm not very good with death or funeral's I'm a terrible cryer, just can't stop when I start. I hope your husband heals soon.

    Thank you Sleepybird. Seeing your name has reminded me how tired I am. I've not slept for the last 2 nights.

    So sorry to hear about your recent losses. My mum passed away 5 years ago and it really is true that time is a great healer. I took me a long time before I was able to think of her without crying but even now I still have my moments. Thinking of you both xx

    Really sorry for the loss of your FIL. I'm sure he knew how much you and your family cared. May he rest in peace.

    Just wanted to say how sorry I am to hear the sad news, for both of you, must be a very difficult time.

    My family have had a very tough couple of years and have lost & nearly lost several people close to me so I can really relate. I think this contributed to my weight gain in a big way which I am sad about.

    Please take care of yourselves first and then do what feels best. In the early months of starting cd my little boy was in hospital twice and somehow I stayed on ss as it seemed to be the only thing I could control, looking back I am not sure how I did it.

    Big hugs to you xxx
