So this is pictures from my height of drinking.
The left is me in November 2015 298 pounds
The right September 2016 135 pounds
The left is July 2017 about a month and a half sober gained 19 pounds since I quit drinking and quit my job
The right is April 2018 11 months sober, 1 hip replacement, and 60 pounds heavier
First I thought “nah why making such a Collage, you changed not that much“ … and then I made the Collage…
I think a hip replacement would slow you down a little . Very interesting transformation, girl! I think you are amazing.
Yesss! Thank you for sharing!
Thank you for keeping this thread alive. I love seeing everyone change through sobriety.
Oh yes, its definitely slowed me way down. No drinking has slowed me way down. When I lost all the weight my hip just started bothering me a little but mostly just drank and masked the pain. Then when I got sober the pain was so bad I wanted to die at times.
I completely understand that. My drinking was masking so much. It’s one of the reasons we are getting out of the midwest. I didn’t realize how horrible all the environmental things around here affect me, plus the bipolar 1 that was hiding under all that booze.
You really do look awesome, though.
You look absolutely radiant!
You look fabulous girl!!
You look great girl!!
Steve! I can’t believe it. That is amazing.
That’s awesome! And it shows brutally how destructive alcohol is.
Wow! To see your healing progress is amazing!
Thank you, it really has been utterly amazing! This face isn’t going back to that ever
Without a doubt one of the worst nights of my life. It would be 8.5 years before I quit drinking and using, but after over a year and a half sober, I’m doing so much better. Writing spoken word about addiction and training/teaching martial arts
That is an amazing way to give back with your sobriety. Way to go!
