Okay girls let's talk about our asses. Yes, mine got big when I first went sober. In fact I gained 35 pounds...totally sucked! Seemed kind of unfair at the time, here I was making this huge healthy change and I'm pacing it on??? WTHeck!?! How was that fair? Now looking back I know it was because all I did was drink and never ate. I pretty much ate whatever I wanted my first year. And yes often I ate what made me "feel" better...I would not take back doing that, I am still sober today. A little bit bigger of an ass, but still sober.
At about a year and a half I went on the South Beach diet and lost most of it. I'm okay with not losing all of it, as I now know that I was boardering on malnutrition. My weight does not define me anymore. I go up and down about 15 pounds every few months, I really want to start working out which would probably stop that from happening, but it's never really been my thing. I'm going to have to pray for the willingness!!
When it comes to food if a chocolate bar is going to curb your craving and stop you from taking a drink, EAT IT! Eating healthy and working out are life long goal. I guess I see them as things we'll always be working on:)
