Today I Decided To Take Control Of My Body

I've gained about 30 pounds over the past year since I quit partying. Today I joined weight watchers and I'm pretty excited. I had planned on joining a couple months ago but for some reason I put it off. Last night I woke up thinking about it and all day I've been asking myself what is my deal, why didn't I join? A few reasons I came up with was that I didnt want to admit my wieght was an issue. It hurts my feelings that I gained weight this past year being sober because I had to give up getting high because of probation and not my own volition. Also, I was kind of planning that once probation was over I would just get skinny again the way I was used tweaking out. Today I decided to take control of my body and in a way, my life, so that I can be healthy and feel good about myself without needing a drug that can jeapordize my freedom and my mind. I have never been slender and sober. I feel so happy even with the weight gain that I cant wait to see how good I feel once I lose it! I'm gonna start with the 30 I gained and then probably do 20 more. I'll undoubtedly be letting you know how it goes. Wish me luck !
