Something Like 6 Months...

Hello everyone!  Just wanted to drop in, its been a few months since I posted.  I've been clean for something like 6 months now.  I simply don't bother to count the days as my problem is long past and its not important anymore.  All has never been better.  No cravings. No falling off the wagon.  It seems like "years ago" since I took my last pill.

For all of you struggling, I will give you the best piece of advice that I was given.  Exercise!

I've always been a "gym-rat" and started pushing myself back toward the weight room.  6 months later, Weight =225 lbs., lost inches in my waist and dropped huge amounts of body fat as well.  For 48 years old, I've never felt better.
The biggest problem is I need XL or XXL shirts and had to buy new jeans with smaller waists.

While I sit and wait patiently for the Spring and my passion of fly fishing, I wish the best to all.  It does get better.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a clean life.

Hi Lisa and Meg.
