I am so glad you found something that motivates you, makes you feel good about yourself and your weight loss. I think the "addiction" may lie in the feeling that you get from exercise - running. It has given you renewed confidence in your body and hope for the future. Like you said, you are beginning to see your life in a different way, there are endless opportunities for you that you didn't have before, and that can certainly be an addictive thing! Backpacking is a great example. I have a friend (my running mentor I mentioned in my thread) that didn't start running or exercising at all until he was in his mid forties, overweight, smoking a pack a day, and he turned his life around. Not only did he run races of all distances, but every year he went on a backpacking trip to the Appalachian Trail. And he would backpack for miles, then set up camp and the next day, begin again - he said it was the greatest thing (next to running ) he ever decided to do. So, yes! the world is opening up for you in so many ways, just by getting healthy and redefining the body that has been stopping you from being the person you needed and/or wanted to be. Go for it Edgar!!!EdgarHF wrote:I must be getting sick, because I am really getting addicted to running.
