If the 1st 10 lbs lost was "emotional baggage" I think this 2nd 10 lbs -- which came off nearly at 2x the rate of the first -- was entirely due to my giving up alcohol for lent. Which leaves me with a predicament come March 31. Can I find a balance and cut drinking to once in a while? Can I keep myself from reverting to the nighly drink(s)? Yes, with SP friend/support I can.
I remember the pie chart showing my nutritional breakdown each day and how that martini or 2 glasses of wine often took up the biggest piece of the pie. And yes, I was losing due to increased exercise but is it worth it?
So glad I'm having these 40 days to learn new habits and see the effects on my weight loss. Surely the fact that I'm almost 1/2 way to my 50 lb goal will be an incentive to keep this up past the Lenten season, right?
