I had planned on talking about the changes that we go through in order to succeed on this journey.  But really, all of that isn't as important as loss.  Not weight loss, however important that might be.  But real, honest-to-goodness loss.  Please go over to Steve's blog.  He just found out that his father passed away.  I don't know all of the details of their relationship.  I don't know if he was a believer or not.  I just know that losing a parent sucks.  Hard.  I lost my mom almost 2 years ago and it still hurts.  So, please, go send him and his family some love.

And may God bless Steve and his whole family.  And really, all of those who lose family members--since it happens every day and is always a tragedy.

I am sorry for the loss of Steve's dad and for the loss of your mum. I lost my own dad when I was a teenager and whatever age you are, you think your parents will be around forever.
