Was AF this whole weekend and driving by the liquor store I was doing the side eye the entire time. I respect everyone on here who can limit themselves, which is something I just can't do and won't ever be there. It's my goal to be AF all this week to continue my streak to make it a month! Not easy but definitely worth it. I am already feeling better physically and mentally. Was looking through all the posts and congrats to all who hit their goals and thank you for posting you success stories...it helps a lot!

Hi friends, I am new to the thread!
I had a last straw type situation with alcohol the other night, and I think I am done with it for good. It is very obvious that I am unable to handle myself when drinking, and that I am unable to control how much I drink. So here I am!
When I am alone it is not so difficult, I rarely get the craving for a drink. With other people is a different story tho, and it is VERY difficult for me to have a fun time with friends unless there is alcohol involved. That will be very difficult. I guess it's a bit easier for now with the Corona rules here limiting how many people I can see, but once those rules loosen up, it's gonna be a challenge.
So Saturday marks day 1. Let's do this!

Get psyched @nookicky it's worth it one million percent. Connecting with people with your same goals is very helpful. They will help carry you and pull you through any rough patches.
Day 23 AF for me. Day 15 AF for husband. Interrupted sleep last night and a crazy horror movie nightmare. I am sure it has to do with eating too late, too much so the gut isn't happy. I read it takes a while for the gut to normalize after removing the alcohol. I have to remember to take the bromelain pills with dinner to help my digestion.
Today I focus on 2 things:
keeping emotions in check and not letting them direct behavior
getting a morning and afternoon "dose" of dopamine from exercise@lilylady3k I can so relate to your post. I now weigh myself once a month and pay no mind to the weight, just the muscle percentage (which I want to go up) and the body fat percentage (to go down). My weight normally cycles up and down by 5 lbs in one day, and during periods of stress, can be more. Water with real lemon or lime all day long, anti-inflammatory foods and little to no starchy carbs at dinner is my go-to reset. You have the power to get the scale numbers back to where you want them especially as life gets back to normal in Texas.

I'm happy to post a new thread each month, Miss May--at least through the year when I may ask to pass the torch to another. You've certainly put your work in. I hope the downsizing is a good thing.
