Happy June everyone
Off to an AF month (well at minimum 24 AF days so I can tie April and May)
Speaking of weight loss, since I was sick all of March, April and a good chunk of May I did manage to drop 2.8lbs in May. That is huge for me. I have been tracking my weight daily for...no joke...since 2012. I have a notebook for each year that I record in. And I was talking to my family who were over on Saturday and I have gained and lost the same 15 pounds for too many years. Right now I am in the middle of that 15lbs.@dethstar77 wow I forgot you were doing such a huge challenge! congratulations on the 1/2 way point

@Lilylady3k Are you feeling more inspired to only drink socially after reading that article? I think about all the times I drink alone (even if my husband is present, I'm not really socializing with him) - cooking, watching certain TV shows, reading a book on a rainy Saturday afternoon. Like clearly I shouldn't be drinking when I'm stressed or sad, but now I'm wondering about these good-mood activities. I'm also wondering if splitting a bottle of wine when husband and I are watching a movie instead of actively interacting is not serving alcohol's "purpose."

Day 2 AF done....logging in now after dinner so I can log my exercise and food for the day.
Insane work demands made me feel like quitting and drinking but I poured myself a cranberry and put myself in "time out" for 15 minutes to recalibrate then went back to work.
I want to retire but my husband won't let me yet !

Same as last month. Goals in order of importance.
1. Do NOT drink alone.
2. No more than 2 alcoholic drinks in a day (with company), no more than 3 days a week.
3. Fit the calories/macros in.

Here's what I like about taking a break from drinking and then when you do decide to have one-
*it is not as tastey as you recall it being before.
*your body let's you know one or two is MORE than enough.
*there is no fan fare, fireworks or glitter bombs when you take a sip.
Last night drinks, two in fact. All of the above fell into place.
June - 2 days
