Throughout my grieving process, I just stopped doing all the things I used to enjoy. I stopped running and working out, I stopped cooking and caring about what I was eating, and I stopped making time for me. Because of this, I gained a lot of weight and lost a lot of self-confidence.
I have now started running again and have started lifting weights with my husband and the weight is slowly coming off. I've also started eating better and am once again eating gluten free. I feel better and am starting to feel more like my old self. I'm happier now and looking forward to continuing down this path. I have a laundry list of things I want to accomplish in the near, and not so near, future and I can't wait to get started!
