    There is a correlation between drinking and gaining weight for me. I eat more when I drink for whatever reason. I can't deny it.

    What works for me, is not drinking at all during the week. I can still have a few on the weekends..and this is how I balance my weight goals. I'd rather do this than just abstain one month out of the year..

    Day 4 (I started a day early). Really wanted a glass (or three) of wine last night! We watched a concert on TV. Oh well I can wait a month! Keep up good work everyone!

    I'm on day 34 of the 75 Hard challenge which includes NO alcohol.

    Won't lie, there have been a few days I REALLY wanted a glass of wine or to enjoy an adult beverage with a friend.

    But I've stuck to it, not going to fail now that I've gotten through the holidays with no misses!

    Wow!!! Thats awesome!

    I just had to look up this challenge and I backed out before I’d even read all the challenge aspects 😂 well done for getting so far with it

    I was doing it.

    I’m not now. Maybe that means I should be?

    But but but... I watch what I eat. I work out. A little booze is my only vice left.

    And I been locked down for four zillion years. I need SOMETHING.

    But I am in awe of anyone who can.

    Ha! I totally get where your coming from RunneeGirl!! I workout basically 6 days a week and eat well. I like thinking I deserve a bit of relax time. Especially this crappy year. But I have a small health issue and dry January is another 'try'.

    I’m doing this also I suppose. Sine I haven’t had any alcohol in years (don’t like the taste) maybe I don’t count.

    No, it's supposed to be a *challenge*, and since it's no challenge for you (or me) our abstinence does not count ;)

    Yum!!! That calls for a nice bold red. Oh wait. This dry January has more pitfalls than I thought.😊
    Lemon water?
  • northviewvintagenorthviewvintage Member Posts: 1,915 Member Member Posts: 1,915 Member
    Lemon water is always good! I'm going to make some mint iced tea for tonight. Yesterday was the toughest day, for me, so far because I had so much going on during the day.I would have, normally, had a few glasses of wine since I stayed up late watching the news. I think it'll probably get easier after the first week.
