Good news: In the last three months, I (mostly unintentionally) lost 30 lbs without abusing myself.
Bad news: 30 lbs is a drop in the ocean of the excessive amount of me. (Not really)
I gained a lot of weight after I got sober a year ago. Considering my weight has been a trigger for a few different varieties of insane behavior in the past, it was best to just put the whole issue on the back burner for a while. Instead, I focused on sobriety and stability was my main concern, and I was successful.
I feel like I did the right thing. However, there is a few consequences: I’m now the size of a small horse, my blood pressure went up(my blood pressure is still in the normal range, though).
I’ve already set a goal to lose a good chunk of weight this year but discussing weight loss with a doctor and other people makes me more accountable. My anxiety about my health is much better now, and my health isn’t THAT bad, considering everything I’ve done to myself.
I need to see if my insurance will cover a bone density scan. My doctor recommended it, but a lot insurances only cover them in certain instances, and I might not have insurance coverage.
