I am brand new to this whole thing and feeling a little lost....? Overwhelmed? I'm not quite sure. I would love to build a support on here as no one from my Facebook or contacts is on here. I am trying to live a more healthy lifestyle to match my sobriety. I will be 5 years clean on June 27th. And I am damn proud of that.... BUT I put on a nice bit of "clean weight". Yeah, right! I'm incredibly unhealthy now and am working to change that. I don't know how to add people yet, (lol) but I would love some new friends!! Anyone in??

    Love your boxer picture... I have two of them. :-) Good Luck! You can add me as a friend if you want, my diary is open. I have lost 50 pounds this year since 1/1/2018, and I have 56 more to go for goal.. so I plan on sticking around for a while! There is also a really good thread in the Challenge's section that is called "Less Alcohol in May One Day at a Time" (changes month after month.. but it has a great support group of people who have quit, who are moderating, or those who need help quiting.. you should check it out, they could always use support from someone who has been so successful for so long.

    Congratulations on your sobriety!! I am a recovering alcoholic myself, nine years sober last month. It’s a tremendous feat for anyone to undertake, I know, I spent a month in rehab and the years following that trying to rebuild my life. It’s only in the last couple of years that I’ve gained the strength and confidence to feel good about myself. I’ve been with MFP since 2011 off and on, but back permanently (yep I said that without hesitation) since September and have lost 43 pounds. I welcome your friend request if any of you are interested. Bless you all for fighting the good fight, we are winners!
