This Isn’t My First Sober Rodeo (Sugar Sober Series)
This is a repost of a letter I wrote to a friend in June 2011. I was six months into my Year of No Sugar. A YEAR. I finished and celebrated that milestone with a post about some of the things I’d learned.
Or thought I’d learned. Because, tomorrow, I’ll share what happened January 2012-October 2014 that has led me right back here again.
But for today, I’ll remember the girl who wrote this note. And know she’s still in me, waiting to be reborn once again.
I was thinking of you as I was working through some “brainwork” this weekend as it pertains to eating habits. I hope maybe this will mean something to you as well. After we spoke briefly last week, I also talked with my doctor about helping kick-start some good habits, and he has prescribed a short-term medication to get me on the right track. It became the motivation I needed to get serious about not just losing weight, but changing my life. Changing my brain more than I was changing my waist.
