    "So yeah even after 2 years of practicing mindful moderation ( has it really been that long @MissMay !?)
    YES @WinoGelato it has. My first post on here was Jan. 25, 2018.....you first spoke up on Jan. 30, 2018.
    I find continuing on this less alcohol thread as important as wearing my seat belt when I get in my car everyday. This thread is my "safety belt".

    @loveychar .......just a bump. That is all, a little bump. No biggy.

    @MissMay Thank you! How can you tell when you first came here? I'm asking for myself. I think it was sometime late last summer or early fall for me, but not before then since I was still breastfeeding. It doesn't matter, to be honest. I'm just glad to be here. It helps...

    Oh funny, @MissMay ! It was in September and you helped me communicate with replies! I had no idea how to reply to anyone!

    I am finishing out this first week with 6/7 AF days. I had a couple of fru fru martinis on Friday with dinner. Normally I would have still gotten wine to drink at home after the dinner drinks, but I stopped at the 2 drinks.

    My challenge to not drink wine for a full week ends tonight. I'm trying to figure out how I want to move forward. One day at a time :).

    I don't comment much, but I did want to say that this group and thread have actually helped me this week. I appreciate all the honesty and support in here. Thank you.

    ETA: I tried non-alcoholic wine tonight. It was a big nope for me. I'm going to have to come up with a new alternative....considering cranberry juice and ginger ale, or something along those lines.

    The good news...I didn't eat up everything...The bad news...I steamed my snow crab legs with beer today...I poured half and drank the rest...22 oz. I don't feel guilty because I've minded my macros and alcohol intake. I will not beat myself up. So now, it's 11/12 AF days (Feb 24). I need a hug.....Sheesh man.

    🤗hug🤗hug🤗hug
    Awesome job on 11/12 days AF. and hey I am sure the beer got wicked watered down from those crab legs, so WIN WIN

    7/7 AF

    Congrats on the big weight loss. Makes life so much easier not to carry around another small size person on our own bodies.
    😊

    Waking up Sunday morning with a clear head after going out the night before. PRICELESS.

    Sorry to hear how your evening ended @LoveyChar.

    @dawnbgethealthy did you say you were doing a 100 day challenge of some sort? Wondering how it is going?

    @whitpauly I use the iceberg as a filler when I create a salad. I always have fresh spinach on hand which is super healthy. And I love a huge salad, like it could be made in a giant mixing bowl and I would eat the whole thing. Vegas for growing lettuce? Why not? Lol

    Make them small goals or large goals. Make them your goals.

    Day 7 AF done! It's Sunday morning, birds are chirping, and it's time to go out for a long run. Looking forward to a good endorphin boost. Time to make today a great day......

    Dang, I miss me some Chesapeake Bay Blues...and the alcohol evaporates out of the beer while steaming, so just try not to finish the leftovers. o:) And a hug, too.
