I'm baaaack!!!

Hey everyone,

Sorry for my absence, life's kept me busy and to be quite honest I felt that I didn't have anything to share but struggles. You see I haven't been following any plan whatsoever so I couldn't go around writing about progress since I wasn't doing anything to see any and I didn't want to write about my failings, lord knows my ego tells me about them enough everyday. Got to quiet that ego down, so what did I do, well today I actually did something good for myself!! Wohoo! I did a DVD workout called Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds Get Started, I did the whole mile so kudos to me for doing that, I'm a large girl as you all know so that makes me feel good. I used to do her 3 mile walk almost every day and on occasion her 4 mile. I used to be a size 3, I used to this and I used to that. None of that matters anymore now does it.

Another thing I need to air out here because its part of who I am is I'm a clean and sober alcoholic of over 9 years sobriety so its not part of this blog so much as its part of me. I go to AA meetings and I follow the same 12 steps that Overeaters Anonymous follows. Now that's out of the way. I couldn't for the life of me figure out why I wanted to keep my sobriety such a secret, first of all the blog is anonymous and second of all its who I am, take it or leave it. There's a lot of us morbidly overweight women who are recovering alcoholics and have traded one addiction for the other. My overeating is a testament that I'm not doing what I'm supposed to be doing and that's handing my will to God every day. So I hope you stick around and watch me learn to live again while incorporating healthy eating habits, exercise and God all in my new plan.

So I guess the blog will change in certain directions only because I have to be true to me. Basically I just want to share my struggles and successes with weight loss while being true to the recovering alcoholic that I am.

That's it for now!

Thanks for visiting!

I really like your blog! I see no difference between alcohol, cocaine and sugar addiction. I am glad you are back!
