Not my best month

I was doing great. Started on January 1st and was perfect with everything until Friday. I hadn't lost any sizes or anything but I felt better. But then, I stopped, and I didn't care. Early Friday morning, I had to put my cat to sleep after a very unexpected illness cut his life short; he was only 5.

I am devastated. Needless to say, dieting is taking a back seat right now. I don't know when I'll be back on track, but I'm trying. I don't think I was this distraught when I lost my grandma back in December.

Aw, honey! I'm really sorry about your cat...your grandma, too.

I've been rather stressed & sick lately, and have been IFing instead of counting calories or carbs. I'm still losing a little weight (about a pound a week) and I feel that by maintaining the bit of discipline that IF requires, I'm not getting entirely off-track and could get back to JUDDD or LC more strictly if I need to. I also don't have to think or plan too much about what I'm going to eat...just when.

If I get really hungry during my "no eating hours", I've been having some coffee & cream or chicken broth (also with cream).

I don't know if that would work for you? Just wanted to suggest it since it can be pretty low-stress but might help you feel that you're still in control. again.

The kitty in your avatar looks exactly like the kitty I just lost. He was such a sweet cat.

Thanks to everyone for the sympathy.

I'm so sorry. Having our pets share our journey through life is more than worthwhile, but it does mean we experience the times we grieve over our lose of them too.

Hugs. Sending my thoughts of sympathy, support, and encouragement.

aw hun, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your little cat. I have 6 cats, but still get a pang when I remember past companions.

Just concentrate of nourishing yourself, body and mind, and get back to weightloss when you are ready.

I'm so sorry about your cat and your grandmother. It's ok to take a break and worry about the diet stuff when you are ready. Be kind to yourself.

One of my best cat friends was a big blue boy I had many years ago. He was such a doll and a lover and snuggler.

So very sorry!! I know how difficult it is to put a furbaby down, especially one so young. They're like our children! You'll get back on track with dieting, take your time grieving. It WILL get better, your memories will comfort you and you'll smile again when you think of him.
