Sober and thankful

Posted 05-06-2010 at 08:50 PM by Lily

Today was a hard but good day. Any day sober is a good day for me. I worked hard and earned my wage. I am still working a loose OA program. It is hard to find all of the hours in the day to work everything. I need to put God first and my recovery a very close second. I think I would rather stay sober than stay on my food plan. If I overeat the conviction just isn't as strong. When I drink or use I lose.

AA & OA

Posted 03-03-2010 at 07:28 PM by Lily

Well, I have never felt better working both programs. Actually for many many years I resented getting clean and sober cuz I would gain so much weight as I would compulsively overeat and choke on my food, etc.

Today I have 4 1/2 months clean and sober and feel wonderful. I have 54 days of abstinent and am down 56.5 lbs. I feel much more energenic and have much more confidence as now I am working full time. I devote Friday's and Saturday's to my AA recovery as I meet w/ my sponsor...

593 days clean and 25 days abstinent from COE

Well, August was by far the greatest month of all! I got abstinent from compulsive overeating and I feel wonderful! I am down 15 lbs and fitting into shirts and jeans I have just longed to wear.

With my addict mentality I have switched back and forth between food addiction and drugs for many many years. I believe my meth addiction was spurred on for so long because of my food addiction.

Tomorrow I will have been married 7 years to my sweetheart. He is my other half. I think this has been the most awesome 7 years of my life. When I met my hubby we were both widowed one year and both still hurting....God brought us together and for that I am eternallly grateful.

On the 20th of this month will be my 18 month clean date!

God is soooo good....

I have lots to do today...ciao!

306 days clean and sober

Posted 11-24-2008 at 06:11 PM by Lily

Well, today was pretty nice. A lady from recovery I met recently was going to come by for a cup of coffee, so I got up and cleaned up even mopped my kitchen and she had to cancel. I was fine with it and basked in my clean house!

Hubby stayed home from work today and went hunting. He didn't get anything, but he enjoyed his day.

I did get my list done the other day! I want to do something cute in my room now that our downstairs bathroom is done. It looks so nice...
