I just lost my dad after reaching my first goal of 155. I lost 7 pounds my first month on this app. I had changed my lifestyle and started to really feel good. The responsibility of the funeral and having to clean his apartment out and console my family took a toll. I had to drive 45 minutes every day to handle preparations. My emotions were going crazy. I don't know how to be vulnerable unless I am sick. I had a wall up. I would be exercising and start crying in the middle of my workout. It made it tough to finish. I had no energy some days. Trying to pick myself back up and find my motivation is hard. But I keep telling myself my dad would be proud of me reaching my dreams and being healthy. He always thought I was the most beautiful girl and wanted me to be happy and healthy. That is my focus. He would never want to see me fail. Though I wish I still had him here, I know that everything I do now is to make him proud. If any of you are going through this, I hope I helped. I am only 23 and he was only 54. It hurts but grief isn't supposed to keep you down. It is supposed to change you and make you a stronger person. I want to be strong. I am done being that shy little girl.

Thank you! I want others to know that there are more people going through things like this. It is hard to push through and see the light at the end when you are in pain. I don't want others to give up.
