Exclamation Won't be posting for a while

So ladies, for the past (more than a few) months I've made no progress, I've started over about a million times and I'm falling deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole. I've learned over the past few years that being honest with myself and holding myself accountable which is why I'm going to face a problem I have that is bigger than my problem with food. For those of you who know me from when I first started posting you will remember that for a long time I've also struggled with alcohol.

I was doing very well for a long while but it has escalated and I am no longer in the drivers seat with this one. It is a major problem and I just cannot concentrate on weight loss until I am sober. all the time. I know some weight loss will come with this as most days I probably drink close to 3 times what I eat in calories in a day...and lets be realistic, no matter how good my food is I'm just going to keep gaining and being miserable if I'm downing multiple bottles of wine in a night.

I'll just say I'm seeking out help in another 'support group' for the time being and for those of you that read my blog (when I actually post) I'll try to put updates there as this website is not the place for those updates. I may lurk from time to time as I get better and hope to eventually be in a better place and posting more and back on track but I need to deal with this other issue first.

All my love and best wishes until I'm back.

Sunshine

Hey, NESunshine,

As someone whose last drink was 21+ years ago, I can say--good luck to you, and you can do it. I couldn't imagine life without alcohol, but I found that not only was it possible, it was way, way better.

I put on a lot of weight during my drinking days, and yes, much of it was because I was drinking. Plus my nutrition was not good, as you can imagine.

Stay sober. Don't hesitate to get help.

Jay
