    Hi all, I have just fond out that my nan only has weeks or short months left and aside from all the usual feelings when you hear this kind of news I have another concern:

    When my grandad died I went off the rails a bit and drank too much and ate too much of the wrong thing. It was all part of a very bad year and I ended up putting loads of weight back on.

    So I need to plan this time but be realistic about it. When the time comes I will not be able to stick to the plan but I will try as much as possible not to sway too far from it. After the funeral I will get straight back on plan.

    I'm sure I will need a lot of support to stick to this throughout this time and I'm sure you can all help me. I will still come on here as much as possible. Thanks in advance x x

    I am so sorry to hear your sad news.

    The only thing I can say is that you have already made plans in advance. You know that you are going to go off the rails so my suggestion would be to set yourself some flexi syn days and just count your syns so that you remain in control of what your eating and drinking and not the other way around. But at the end of the day, it's all minor in the grand scheme of things. You know that we are all here for you when you need it! :hug99:

    Thanks MsJMC, I know food isn't the answer and I hope I can avoid going down that route but it is still my comfort. I will just have to try to spend more time here!

    Good Idea. If comfort food is your thing, make some SW puds to help you through it. We made some great ones at the weekend.

    Hi Taz.
    I'm so sorry to here your sad news.
    I'm not very good with words, but I hope you don't go of the rails to much.
    Different people deal with sadness in many ways, When my wonderful Mum died suddenly 3 years ago I was a mess, I found I could'ent eat. Drink did'nt come into it for me, as I don't like it. Stay in touch with your friends on here as much as you can, and try to stay possitive, which I know is difficult at times like this.

    It's times like these when you do start to think that there are more important things in life than worrying about your weight. I would suggest that you focus on getting back on track after the funeral, because it might keep your mind off things and discourage you from going off the rails.

    Hi Taz hun sorry to hear about your nan. I am lucky to have never lose anyone close to me so I can only imagine how you must be feeling and what your going through.

    You said you went off the rails a bit when your Grandad died. Maybe do something to take your mind not off your nan but the pain you are feeling which made you go off the rails last time.

    Maybe arrange a Family gathering for a week or so after the Funeral where you all get together and plant a tree somewhere special and get a special memorial plaque made for it. So its a place where you or family members can visit to remember her. I dont know what else to say I just thought it might give you a focus.:hug99:
