Weekend get-togethers with foodie friends always include wine and food. I don't plan to socialize much in January because I want to drop some December weight (and save money). I was very "festive".

On to day 7 today! I'm finding out that for me, at least so far, reaching for wine is just something to do in the evenings when I cook, watch TV etc. and not a physical need. As long as I occupy my mind in the evening and do something else in place of wine - the "witching hour" of 6-7pm passes, and I'm good. I don't normally have a sweet tooth, but I find that I've been reaching for an afternoon piece of candy this past week. I guess I need to get my sugar that I would normally get from wine some other way.
How is everyone else doing?

Day 10 AF! I remember from the Alcohol Experiment that it takes 10 days for alcohol to completely leave your system and allow your body to regain homeostasis, so I'm glad to have reached this goal finally. I do actually feel a lot better today than I have all month so far.

Day 10 and doing great! I had my first weigh-in this morning and I am down 2 pounds Kicking butt, feeling energized and more confident.
This weekend I have two holiday parties to go to (when will the festivities end?) and both will be full of big drinkers, whom are also used to seeing me partake. So I'm mentally preparing myself for all the questions of why I'm not drinking and the assumptions that "oh you must be pregnant" *eye roll*

Im in. Im doing this challenge not to lose weight but to detox from the festive season (way to much beer). This will be quite hard as its summer time now and there is so much festivals on weekends.
Any tips on how not be socially awkward at social events when everyone is drinking?

Unfortunately I had couple of glasses of wine last night. No reason why, other than I really a taste for a cold glass of chardonnay - or two. I'm not going to beat myself over it and enjoy the fact that I stayed dry for 7 days. Starting with day 1 again today.
