3 years ago, I got sober and my world changed. I am so blessed to even be alive right now. Gratitude and humility play a role in my day to day because without those things, I'm right back to where I was. When I got sober, I developed a severe sugar addiction and as a result, gained a ton of weight. I have struggled with my weight my entire life. Being a 6 foot tall female, regular scale numbers just don't apply to me. If I ever weigh 115 lbs, I'd either be hospitalized or dead lol. Scale numbers have always played with my head, so on May 15, 2012, I decided that I was not going to pay attention to the scale for any other reason than to check progress. I would, instead, pay attention to my BMI. I had been diagnosed with hypertension and was at risk for stroke and heart attack and I was just 29 years old. I was scared. But my journey through sobriety had left me with the impression that I was capable of anything I put my mind to. Damn it if I wasn't right. I got on the scale today and I am just 5 lbs away from hitting my 80 lb weight loss goal. This is the first time I have successfully lost weight without the use of illicit substances. It has been a long road, but what I'm most grateful for today is my health. My blood pressure returned to normal numbers a few months back; I instinctively know how to portion my food; I dislike the way I feel when I eat unhealthy. Most importantly, I'm happy :)

I've never posted here before but I was too excited to be this close to not share it with people! I wish everyone well and hope that everyone gets to feel the way I do today!! :) 75 lbs down, 5 to go!!
