The way I feel about Weight loss as of today. It's not always about dropping weight everyday. It's about 1.)making good choices more often than bad ones. It's about 2.)keeping the weight off that I did loose. 3.) Staying honest with myself by checking my weight once a week. My waist measurements. 4.) Be willing to accept a day I screw up and continue on. 5.) Not giving up. 6.) Continuing to add in good habits. 7.) Loving your body.

I'm in control. Even if I make a choice to eat cake. I choose it 1 day in one moment. ok. So what! No big deal. The next 30 days I don't. Or it could be years.
This is my solution to the yoyo. I don't check out for long. Cheers!

@LollyNews To be honest, I often forget I was ever an addict. It was for such a short part of my life and was in the middle of my ptsd fight. For me, because of ptsd, I feel that since I survived that everything is gravy. I'm pretty good now at not stressing the little stuff. I get impatient and forget how far I have come in just a couple of years. I've been clean for 2 1/2 years but the first year was tough. I remember hearing stories of people with 15, 20 years sobriety and relapsing. It would be so easy. The think that keeps me clean though is it hurts like hell to detox off oxy (and other stuff too, it's just oxy is all I know). I'm scared of the pain again.

@Round3 I can relate to the feeling of being scared of the pain again. I have been sober for almost 2 1/2 years as well. And I rarely think about it myself but when I do I also think about how easy it would be to slip so I never take My Sobriety for granted anymore and really try to focus on one day at a time and how I am so grateful to not have to go through the pain of hangovers and detoxing. I don’t want to experience that anymore.
I have a question. Is it hard to take Oxy and not get addicted. Can you take it every now and then? I guess that would maybe apply to a lot of things. I could never just take a little bit of anything. I’ve got addicted to Adderall because I didn’t take it the way I was supposed to. But I know somebody who takes Oxy and they say they just take it every now and then when they have pain. But I hear it’s so addicting. That’s one of a few things I don’t know about.
It feels good to be free of it that’s for sure and now we can focus on being Healthier everyday.

@Round3 I have PTSD too. Being sober helps me avoid situations that would trigger it. But it still happens from time to time.
