Finishing Day 8 and so proud

Why am I proud? Well, a few reasons.. haven't had a drink for 8 days, but I am also eating... I hardly ever ate anything when I was drinking, I believe I was anorexic, but calories came from drinking.

Well today, I woke up refreshed at 4:30 a.m. had a big breakfast at 6:30.p.m. lunch at Noon and a HUGE supper, I haven't ate that much in one day for as at least two years. Drinking about 10 glasses of water a day and taking my vitamins. It sure feels great. Hubby and kids are so proud of me.

I was so focused on work today and my body feels great. Oh, I took the kids to do their back to school shopping.

Oh, life is great!!!!!! Why did I ever go back to drinking after 7 years of sobriety? Well, can't look back, gotta look forward.

OH crud I forgot to take my vitamin! Thanks for unintentionally reminding me! LOL Congrats on 8 days!! I will feel my 8 tomorrow. I woke up at 5am this morning.. too early but owell it made me get up and workout.

Alcohol had the opposite affect on me.. I was eating a lot because I would get so hungry after drinking so much. And wine, if I didn't eat, I would vomit so I had to eat first. I gained like 25 pounds since drinking.. I used to be very thin. Not anymore! I'm on the track to lose all of it though

Good for you!! keep it going!

Ha! I wish! I just want to be back to my old healthy weight. I'm not fat but not thin anymore. I used to be 120
