Congrats Jon on having the courage to change your life around!!! 

 It takes a mature individual to realise that things need to change, and it takes a courageous one to actually take the steps to make it happen! I have sympathy for those who have now turned their backs on you. I can only assume they have done this because their weak. Hearing that you're  movin on to bigger and better things like a life  of health and fitness only emphasis the fact that they can't do it. Jealousy and insecurity are two words that spring to mind. You are your own best friend, the more you love yourself and are confident in ur own skin, real people will appreciate and respect that. You'll have real friends in no time. 

Thanks for sharing, it's not venting this is real life, this is how people are unfortunately. I wish you the best of luck for the future.

First I like to say Congrats on 7 months sober and I admire that. It took will power and courage to do what you've done. I just started on my journey of an healthy lifestyle, my friends and I occasionally  talk and hangout now that I've taken control of my own well being so when that day come they complete exile me I say Jon told me it would happen.

I believe apart of life is controlling things that we can and placing the things we can't in God's hands.

So thanks Jon for having the well power and courage to change and lead by example.

Wow, when you are healthy and in great shape in 10 years they will be the ones feeling like losers. It's their loss.

First, congratulations on your decision to change your life and better yourself. Keep it up and stay strong. Second, "friends" come and go, but FRIENDS stick around. I learned this lesson on all of my deployments. It hurt at first but I came to realize if they were willing to walk away when I most needed their support then they weren't friends at all and if not then, they would have walked away at some other point in my life. I have started the process of building new friendships and evaluating existing ones. Better they leave sooner than later. You can now start over and find new relationships, you now know which type of people to avoid. Use this community for instance, there are a lot of great people here. They share the same interest in getting fit and bettering themselves. You may not be able to meet up with all of them but a friend doesn't have to be someone who lives nearby, simply just has to be someone you enjoy on many different levels. Or for another example, say you enjoy being active outdoors (hiking, rock climbing, white water rafting, biking, etc) get out there and find some classes and/or groups that do these activities and get to know the people within these classes/groups. It is never too late to mold your life into what you want it to be. Good luck in keeping with your sobriety and rebuilding your life and relationships how you want! Never give up, a better quality of life is right around the corner.
