Mind Over Matter –

July 25, 2020 – At the end of 2019, I was back in an outpatient treatment program to get sober. While there, I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression. But by December 2019, I also had lost 70 pounds. Post-treatment, I was so inspired to finish what I started with my current weight-loss journey. (I am now just shy of nine months sober!)

My current journey isn’t my first time losing weight—so I stuck to an eating method that previously worked for me.

In 2013, I lost 70 pounds, although I gained it all back plus more. But I did what worked back then, following a “calories in, calories out” (CICO) diet, as well as loosely counting macros.
