  • Check out www.newdayforme.org to join a community of like-minded people interested in cutting down their drinking or cutting out drinking altogether. It is free for all and comprised of people from around the globe.
  • The Daybreak app evolved from the Hello Sunday Morning forum in Australia. One of the downsides is that it isn't free, though many people have found it quite helpful. Those of us who were using the HelloSundayMorning.org free site created a community site for those looking to change their relationship with alcohol by…

  • Weekends are still the hardest for me. I've been quitting/abstaining/moderating for a little over two years now. When I went 90 days without a drink I felt the best I've ever felt and never had to fight off the urge to drink in the last 60 days of that quit. It was an awesome feeling! There were still thoughts, but they…
  • Great advice! We are bound to fall down a few times on this journey, but if your pick yourself back up and consider what the cause was, you will have learned something in the process. Each time you fall, you get stronger if you do not let it defeat you from heading in the right direction. Could not agree with you more with…
  • I started stepping away from alcohol two years ago with breaks anywhere from 1-week to 3-months to see if I could do it. No regrets for I no longer have the urge to drink and I feel so much better every morning. I also have the energy to get in a workout and cook a healthy dinner in the evening instead of stopping at a pub…
  • My daughter started a Ketogenic Diet so I researched it, listened to a bunch of podcasts, got books from the library, and dove into the published literature on it before giving it a shot. Some was *kitten*, but other sources were legit. There is some good info out there, you just have to find it. Granted, it was not easy…
  • Thanks for the insight jagodfrey08 ! It's been two years since my last TM, but I know what I'm getting into with one of those. Spartan seemed doable, but was a little concerned about the Beast. Super sounded perfect, but I think I'm going to go ahead and sign up for the Beast. Once I pay my entry fee, it is always a…
  • I've not done a Spartan Race, but have completed three Tough Mudder Races, but it has been a couple years since the last. Just discovered that Spartan Races were being covered on NBCsn and caught the mud fever again. There is one here in Ohio scheduled for May but there is only a Sprint and a Beast course. The Warrior…
  • With a smile like that, absolutely.
  • Thanks for the help!
  • Oh, I so miss that age! Okay, not really. My daughter was an absolute slob. She would do her chores around the house and since she had to do her own laundry at 14, if she ran out of clean clothes, she had to dig through the dirty clothes. Though her room was a disaster area, she did stay up with her laundry and chores for…
  • Help however you can.
  • Now that would be completely different. Can't even imagine but might have to try it just because...
  • I just started 5AM workouts this week. Well, the alarm goes off at 5AM and it is just enough to wake me up and fight it for 15 minutes before getting out of bed and going to the gym. Three days doesn't mean much, but for me it is a milestone. Tomorrow, I'll fight it again, but perhaps that 15 minutes will become 10 and…

  • For the past five years we've gone to New York for the US Open and stayed with a local who lived in Manhattan. What made it nice for us is she showed us how to use the subway and marked places to go off the beaten path for us so we could avoid the "touristy" areas. Personally, my favorite part of town is the East Village…
  • Congrats Ms. Sedentary! You look fantastic - now get that gym thingy hooked up and start exercising :-) Tom
  • AWESOME! It is easy to get off track, but it takes courage to face the facts and do something about it. Well done!!
  • Prefer to not have moobs. Like boobs, just not moobs.
  • As someone who makes his money from creating web sites for a living, I find this funny as ****!
  • You look great! Goes to show that it can be done. Thanks for sharing! T

  • Wow! Glad my daughter made it through high school without getting pregnant. STD Award? Seriously? That's a leap. Also glad she has a real job (not a prostitute) today, has her own apartment that she pays for, is going to college full-time and working at the same time, and has thrived as an adult with a tattoo and survived…
  • Yup, she was an adult when she got the tattoo.
  • Like I said before, she was 18 when these were taken and had to wait until she was 18 to get the tattoo. Besides, it is a beautiful tattoo. Guess not everybody is a fan of ink. Oh yea, she has a nose ring too. Another taboo? Whatever. I am proud of her.
  • I guess we are all entitled to our opinion. I wasn't looking for affirmation of my daughter's "sex appeal." It's a picture that reminded me of a '20's movie star shot. I call it art and the woman photographer is excellent. In Europe, as our German guest pointed out, a bare midriff would never raise an eyebrow. However, in…
