Hello group, I am totally new to this...My story ....I am 33 years of age from The Bronx. I have that average story with weight loss that everyone seems to have. However, what makes mines a little different from the rest is when I lost my mother at age 29. During this time, it was really hard for my family and me to understand the reason or reasons why she was chosen. She left this Earth at age 48 (That is a very young age) of a silent killer called heart disease. Something I knew could have prevented this from happening was being active. From that moment it was more of life change decision for me.

I don't ever want anyone to ever go through what I did that day... I am willing to help anyone that wants to talk or just to vent... I know this may sound like spam, but I want to let everyone know what has help me cope with my loss.... Maybe it will help you as well...I am beach body coach, the creators of in home fitness programs like P90x, Insanity, and turboFire, just to mention a few. Taking care of myself has been my main priority.... Please let me know if I can assist you as well... we are in this together, I love that there is support out there to help us.

I lost my mother about 10 months ago, after having cared for her for the previous 3(+) years...There are nights, like tonight, when the grief is so strong, I feel like my whole body could just burst...

I lost my mom September 26, 2010. I didn't live at home at the time, and had made a spur of the moment decision to stay with my parents that night because I had been in the neighborhood out with some friends. I came home, went up to the guest bedroom (my mom had been sleeping in my room because she loved my bed) and threw my stuff in there and took a quick shower. My phone was dead so I went into my parents' bedroom and asked my dad if his phone charger was upstairs. He told me no so I went downstairs and checked his charger in the living room. Too big for my phone. So I went into my room where my mom was sleeping to check her charger. I laughed when I walked in because she was face planted into a pillow in front of her. She had fallen asleep in the past in funny positions so this struck me as no different. I checked her charger, too big for my phone, and then decided to lay my mom down. I lifted her up and she had uneaten food under her stomach. When I laid her on her back she didn't respond at all. I checked her pulse, didn't feel anything, and then turned on the lamp and saw that her color was off and she felt cold. I ran upstairs telling my dad I thought that mom was dead and he came down....

I knew my mom was gone the minute I turned on the lamp to look at her. My dad didn't accept it until the paramedics showed him the flat line of her heart that was no longer beating.

I don't like going back to that night. I miss my mom. I miss her laugh, her smile, her personality... did she annoy me? Yes. She is my mom. But her love was so passionate and overwhelming... I hate living this life without her. My dad is broken. My brother is broken. And I feel like getting out of bed in the morning is the hardest thing to accomplish.

My mom was killed by her neighnor who was stalking her for 5 yrs. She was shot in her driveway july , 7th. I can't breathe. He killed her after she put a restaining order on him, he used to follow her everywhere. He killed himself too. I don't know how to live without her, plus I found out I was pregnant one week after her death. I cannot find the strength to be happy about anything.

Shelley, I am so sorry for the loss of both your parents. So close to each other, I can't even imagine how hard that must be. I lost my mom three months ago yesterday. You are right, your body feels weighted by all that grief and it is so hard to put one foot in front of the other, to make your mind focus on one thing, but the pain gets lighter. I know you will get through this. Rely on other family members if you can, lean on your friends, believe me, they don't have any clue how to comfort you unless you tell them what you need. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. April

hi my name is shelley I lost my mother on the first of August 2010 three days after we buried my father.Dad got diagnosed with cancer and we nursed him at home until his death. Little did we know a week after we lost him we would loose mum. My mother was my world my being a beautiful lady who I was lucky to be with every day of my life and that is why it hurts so much.I think in life you can be too close to some people and that is the problem i face now the emptiness and sadness my heart aches and my body is so heavy how do you go on. It feels like you are so alone

Hi Julie, I know how you feel and the emotions that you are going through! I miss my Mom everyday and it has been 17 months for my Mom and 16 months for my Dad. Mom was my best friend and always will be! the only thing that gives me comfort is knowing that she is watching over me. I know that your Mom is watching over you as well, just believe. Dana.

On August 17, 2010 was the one year anniversay of losing my mom. I am still devasted by her death. She was my cheerleader, best friend and always, always there for me and now when something happens my first thought is I should call mom and then it dawns on me yet again she is gone from my eyes forever. Yes I believe in God! I only know what I can see here. I lost my sweet dad in 2005 that broke my heart but losing them both so soon...heartbreaking.
