    Um...I had to cut my own bangs. Just saying.

    Three days AF. The only problem is boredom and irritation. The last time I stopped drinking for 6 months I gained 10 pounds from eating more at night to replace the wine. I hope that doesn't happen. I have definitely eaten more the last few days. I usually don't eat after dinner as I have wine, without it I get fidgety.

    When I have alcohol my food choices are so different. I definitely eat more snacks when I have alcohol.
    Good going on 3 AF days!!

    @Beka3695 Luxurious Prisoner--love it! And way to go on the almost 2 months!!!
    @morrisjen2014 I think everyone's feeling more restless than usual. I also drink from boredom. And since I'm not drinking and I'm so over this #@$*$#@ weather, I'm grumpy. Really, Maine--not a single day above 60 this month? I miss Texas!!! Sorry, I'm digressing. I'm trying to figure out why I'm bored. I didn't drink as a kid or teen and I was rarely bored. What happens to us? Figure out what gets you amped and go for it! (I'm talking to both of us, lol.) I'm disappointed I'm not losing more weight, but not gaining at least.
    Congrats to @dawnbgethealthy and @LoveyChar and @globalhiker and others who are rocking their goals!
