I keep wondering if you've thought about having two blogger spaces. Your words on loss and grieving and sustaining a relationship have been generous, and helpful to me, though I have not lost a child.
The ShangriLa eating plan seems like such a different topic, maybe even jarringly so. But perhaps on my part, that's the impulse to take grief and put it in a box, safe from threatening other things, refusing to see death alongside life going on?
The weight loss is important to me, mostly because I was dealing with grief, in part, by eating until I submerged parts of the pain. The diet cut out the mental connection to food and broke all of that loose. In addition, the diet creates changes in mental states unlike anything I've experienced (for more than a week).
On the other hand, I really think I can move the diet comments to Seth Robert's on-line forums, now that they are up and running. I need to get back to my core, especially if readers find it jarring. It was seductive to get up to a thousand page views in a day (May 4th), but now that things are moving along, people can get diet information lots of places.
I'll blog about another rule of three next, and get back to my core.
If you want more diet information, go [here] and [here/here] (the second link pair takes you to the message boards that Seth Roberts set up and lots of other people's perspectives and thoughts on the diet). I'm back to my roots, where I can do some good.
Thanks for the reminder and the perspective.
