Hello, you can loose the weight , Start by drinking plenty of water, lots of protein , and exercise, i know that sounds like the typical answer , but its the only one , loosing weight is about sticking to a clean healthy style of eating.
Dont be depressed , you can always make changes. Have you thought about eventually coming down off the methadone.
