I don't really have much to blog about today.

 Finally, someone told me it looked like a lost weight. It's finally starting to show. I started running and eating healthy the day I quit drinking (july16). I was almost thinking that I've been working my ass off for nothing! I know that I do feel so good about myself. My eyes aren't as puffy. I'm not as bloated. My legs are getting stronger.

 Sometimes, I think back and ask myself how I managed to stay sober for over a month during the beer drinking summer season. I think making new sober friends here at camp has helped me tremendously. I almost wish I could open up to them and thank them because even though they have no ideas, they've taught me that I don't need to be drunk to enjoy my life. How? Just by drinking water with them and laughing and talking? I wonder if I the outcome would have been different if they were drinkers too.

 Anyhow, I'm not craving beer. I refused a few already tonight from my neighbours and I feel good about it now. I'm not as worried about what people think of me because the fact of the matter is, this is ME! The new and improved ME! I absolutely love ME! Finally, after 41 years, I could say I love ME! Bring on my life and challenges. I feel ready to take on the world!
