Holiday Booze!

Saturday, November 24, 2012

That seems to be what's getting me lately. I'm doing well with food, but everything seems to come with a side of free booze! How can you say no to that??

    I just simply don't drink alcohol. All of my friends & family know this and they don't even offer it anymore. I don't see the point and it makes me feel like crap. I'd much rather have a yummy flavored seltzer with my meal or while socializing.

    I don't drink very much. If I want a drink I will have one, if not I will just say no. I sip on water or a diet soft drink and no one knows. I've never been questioned about it.

EASY - Open you mouth and say "NO"!

I USED to drink many many years ago, then one day I just didn't feel like it any more. People would get upset with me because I was being "unsociable!!!" I stuck to my guns and said there was no hard and fast rule that said I HAD to drink. As a result I have stayed off it - haven't drunk any since other than a couple mouth fulls maybe once in 2-3 years.

I realized a big deterrent to my success in the weight loss part of my program has to do with my sugar addiction. While trying to get my calories under control, I'm going to try the SparkPeople article plan for eliminating sugar cravings. I think that'll probably help get my calories down while accomplishing the other goals at the same time. On the positive side, all my exercise is dialed in, and I've been really good about staying within my goal calories for about 8 days straight!

    Doing the Sparkpeople.com suar buster method really helped. I lost 5 lbs in 3 months by doing it, where I was super-stalled before, and I'm no longer a slave to sugar! I knew there was something to that!

    I struggled with this too, I settled on giving myself 1 bite, when I felt like icecream I would have 1 spoonful just to get the taste, or If I wanted chocolate I would have 1 square. Usually the cravings are just for the taste rather than because you're hungry.

    Stay with the plan! Give yourself some wiggle room. If you plan a small sugar break, you won't binge big later. emoticon
