I disappeared from SparkPeople for awhile. Last year was probably one of the worst years for me personally. In early February, my brother was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder (he had a complete mental break) and was hospitalized for 6 months. My uncle passed away in July and he asked me at the 11th hour to be his executor. My beloved dog of 14 1/2 years passed away in October. So a lot on my plate and the last thing I wanted to do was watch what I was eating and just have my comfort food. I realized that was not an answer, and I actually went on Dr. Bernstein and dropped about 45 lbs. I also realized that at some point, I need to to do this on my own, so I have started back by tracking my food combined with the program of Eat/Stop/Eat. I am so glad to be back, I forgot how supportive and fun this site can be.
