Good morning friends. Had 5 beers at poker last night. Been a while since I had that many. We are packing up and leaving for a camping trip at the lake! YAY!! That usually means beer and more beer. I won't be able to drink TOO much as we will be outside in the triple digit heat. I'm going to have fun. Our last big shebang of the summer.

Give yourself a big old healing hug! I know how that feels and trust me there were a few nights this week I would have loved to had a nice cold glass of wine, but went to bed instead such a party animal, lol. All I can say is push that water into you today even if you dont want it to get hydrated again and if you need that cheeseburger give yourself permission to have it and then jump right back to healthy eating. We are here for ya!!! emoticon

It is funny how my mind works. I plan my week on whether or not I am going to drink! So I drank on Monday because my husband wanted to. I drank on Wednesday because I wanted to, then last night we decided we better drink cause we are taking it easy Friday night because I have family coming in from out of town and we will be drinking on Saturday! It is a little ridiculous at times. Anyway I feel drained from drinking two nights in a row and all I wanna do is eat a big greasy hamburger and fries! Lord help me!

Hi Everyone,

I've had a AF week so far this week, feeling proud of that. Things have been hectic with my semester starting and my daughter starting back to school. Hoping to stay low on drinking this weekend wish me luck!!!

Have a great Friday everyone :)

Sun - Mon = AF, Tuesday ----Bust!
Had bunko last night. I drank 2 big beers which equals 4 normal size beers. It has been quite awhile since I've done any mid-week drinking, so I won't be too hard on myself.

I have been AF so far this week but work has still been the same. At least we were able to get rid of one of our problem people. Then today, out of the blue, a bottle of wine shows up on my door step. It was from my boyfriends step father. He knows that I like this certain wine because he introduced it to me. I will save it for the long weekend.

AF Tuesday, we will see about tonight....

I am feeling better today about the whole scale thing. I really need to stop weighing myself on a daily basis. It really can ruin your mood. I need to trust that my diet and workouts are working even if it doesn't show up on the scale.

Yesterday was not AF (bowling night), nor was it moderate. TODAY is the day to get with the program.

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.

Jennifer - Sometimes the day after I've drank a lot, the scale is really low. They say that the alcohol dehydrates.

Same thing happens to me sometimes, Jennifer. In fact, when I'm 'bad' the weight gain tends to show up several days to a week later. Other times, if I've been high on sodium, for example, or not gotten enough water in my weight can be jacked up. Hang in there - it should level out & head in the right direction.

I made a fatal flaw yesterday. I had beer left in the house from the weekend. You know where this is leading...

Anyhow, tonight is bowling, so I'm aiming to keep the intake low. Will return to (trying to be) AF on Wednesday.

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.

Hey everyone,
I am so disappointed today....Saturday weighed in at 298, Sunday 300 ok no biggy, Monday 302 what the heck?, Tuesday 304! I haven't changed anything I have been doing. I am still working out every morning. I even worked out on Saturday. I just don't understand.

Sundays are usually AF for me but we went on a motorcycle ride. I only had 1 Mikes & 1 shot of blackberry brandy. Hopefully this week will be uneventful at work. I can always dream. Anyway, I only have maybe 1 glass of wine left in my bottle so I will have to deal.

Hello ladies!
Will be thinking about you and your husband, Georgine. That is scary!

Sun was AF for me.
Today was the first day of school. Can't believe my two are in the fourth grade this year. DH has agreed to get the girls up and make sure they are ready so I can continue my 5:30 am gym time. He's not thrilled about it, but since he has a new position at work, I have to take them and pick them up and will have some evenings without him as well.

Everyone have a great day!

Next thing we know .....anyway we had a good time! So good that I don't think I will be drinking til at least Wednesday!

good morning! Finally we had rain and now sunshine. emoticon
I was not AF over the weekend but nothing drastic. Gave in and had 2 glasses of wine while making dinner. Tomorrow we see the cornea specialist to see if John is a good candidate for it. Scary and I am feeling the stress already.
Always time to come back and re-new Linda. We have worked at keeping this challenge going so can't give up now. I am struggling also but plan to be AF today tension or not. Exercise helps me a lot to wear off the stress.
Happy Monday everyone, always another chance to begin a new week. emoticon together

Welcome to our challenge Bella!

I have not been AF since I last posted. Was aiming for it Friday, but no. The weekend was not as bad as it might have been, but worse than it should have been. I need to get back with the program. So...today will be AF!

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.

I love wine and to be honest I would like to eliminate alcohol all together but I think that is an unrealistic goal at the moment. I tend to drink a bottle of wine maybe twice a month. I would like to just drink a glass of wine when we go out to dinner and would prefer not to drink at home. emoticon

Love yourself.

I shared wine with my granddaughter and have to admit I finished the bottle but not a big bottle. Did have 2 mixed drinks later in the day while doing housework and starting stretches, sure makes things go easier, more relaxed but can't keep doing that-Ha! Was a fun day and hubby having a good day too. Enjoy the rest of the day. One more day and anothr out of town appt. to see if hubby can have a cornea transplant sfaely wihtout lossing all his sight. Scary times--wine beckons sometimes. Georgine emoticon because i need to do it.

I was AF Sunday-Friday this last week. I had to work on Saturday so I was better off not to drink Friday night. Saturday we went out for pizza & I had a Mikes. Later I had a couple double shots of blackberry brandy on the rocks while we sat around the fire. That was the rest of my bottle from the weekend before.

Hope everyone had a Great weekend!

Georgine - Ugh! Football!
Jennifer - Great job on the loss!! Doesn't it feel great? No, I didn't win, but DH did. I had fun and got to relax, so that's all that matters to me!


We stayed in Saturday and I was AF! That means 6 AF days last week, YAY!

Good Job Amanda! I on the other hand I did not play mini golf but instead had 6 Budweisers and 2 shots of gold, which is actually good for me for a Friday night. I got up this morning and weighed in and lost 3 pounds WOOT WOOT!. Then I walked a mile in 25 min which usually takes me 30 so that was good. So I would say my weekend is off to a good start. My husband is making taco lasagna for lunch and a roast for dinner all I am thinking is REMEMBER YOUR PORTION SIZES AND ADD SOME VEGGIES!

P.S. Amanda did you win at poker???

I had 4 beers last night plus a jello shot. I didn't really want/need the jello shot, but someone bought it for me and I didn't want to be rude :/ I still had close to an hour of card playing left after my last beer, but managed to say "no thanks, I'm done" the rest of the night.

No plans for tonight. Maybe AF?

Awesome, Jennifer! Funny how just being mindful of what we're doing can start to change our thinking. I was AF yesterday. That gives me Monday & Thursday so far this week. Aiming for AF tonight too (imagine that - on a Friday, no less!).

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.

AF Tuesday and Wednesday emoticon No company for awhile which is nice, too much at once before!!
I started using Kool-aid liquid in my bottled water.. It also gives me something to reach for when i am craving something. I like changing flavors and I get my water as well and I actually enjoy it and it fills me up. Just a suggestion.
I still have a lot of stress as a caretaker for my husband and it comes with a lot of stress but i am doing my best to stay on track and take care of me.
Have a good day everyone and keep posting for support, help and to give support. Georgine

Sun - Wed = AF

Jennifer - A little tip that works for me. Find you some "special beverages". Some ideas are flavored tea or coffee, coconut water, vitamin water, etc. Something that is new or that you don't drink often. Save those drinks for when you are really "itching" for alcohol. I am always shocked that a treat beverage can distract/satisfy when I really want beer.

Jennifer- I have that problem too when my boyfriend asks if I want to go for a motorcycle ride & our destination is usually a bar. Usually just 1 drink or a double shot for me but its still more than if he wouldnt have suggested it.

Surprisingly, I have been AF all week so far. Every day I go into work something else happens. I probably had enough last weekend to tide me over until next weekend.

So its Wednesday...Hump Day! My plan is to only drink one day between Mon-Thurs and I drank on Monday. I know in a few hours I am going to feel that mid afternoon itch to drink. I am going to try my hardest not to bring it up to the hubby...hopefully he doesn't bring it up to me either. I know if he does it makes everything 10 times harder and then I start to make excuses why it will be OK. For instance, Thursday night is my sons orientation for 5th grade so there will be no drinking on Thursday. So might as well drink tonight right?? No bad idea! I have a minimum of about 800 calories left for the day and I know I will go over! Ugh I will let you know how it goes tomorrow...wish me luck!

Good job on the cake guys. My mom has always told me its not always what you eat, its how much you eat! Sharing always helps too emoticon

And I would like to say thank you to CaptainMorgan for your reminder about what this board is about emoticon I do not judge people that are able to never drink....more power to you! But I do feel like it is being thrown in my face when others make comments like that. If you ask me dieting and trying to stay sober or cut back goes hand in hand. We all have our struggles and should be here to support not put down.

Welcome Jennifer! Sounds like you have a great plan. Post here when you are successful. We will cheer you on. Post here when you fail. We will encourage you. It isn't easy, but you can do it!

Great work on resisting the cake, Linda! We still have half of the girls' birthday cake out in the garage fridge calling my name every evening. Maybe we will all have a piece tonight and throw out the rest.

Sun - Tue = AF. Food and exercise has been really great lately. Weight is down. WOOT!

I wasn't 'moderate' last night according to the challenge rules, but I did a WHOLE lot better than normal at bowling. Saved calories by switching from blue moon to bud light, and had a salad for dinner. I even resisted getting any of the yummy looking sheet cake one of the group members had brought! I'm calling last night a success.

Thanks, I look forward to it. That is tough when you have people on the outside. I sometimes drink to be polite too or just because everyone else is doing it. It sounds silly but I do the same thing with food. Sometimes I feel like I have a double addiction. emoticon emoticon

welcome Jennifer, You already have a good plan to begin with. good luck, stop here to vent , get support. give support, whatever.
I am still trying to get back on track, too much company and seems everybody wants to have a few. My son came yesterday and pulled the fridge out so we cleaned that. He no sooner left and my neighbor stopped with his new lady friend and they brought beer and a jar of cherries in vodka. I didn't want to drink anymore so sipped what was left of my last drink with my son, tried the cherries to be polite, not my thing! We did have a nice visit but i had so much yet to do and now trying to do it hoping my cousin and his wife from Wyoming don't stop without calling. Into the shower for me!!. Georgine

Usually Budweiser and Goldschlager, but I have been known to have a few glasses of Moscato. Those Apple Rita's are really good too. You forget your drinking alcohol with those!

Welcome Jennifer! Sounds like you have a good plan to start with. Depending on what you drink, it sure can add up in calories.

I am a fan of Mikes Hard Black Cherry Lemonade but found out they are about 200 calories for a bottle & I usually drink about 3 of them. I switched to Blackberry Brandy which is half the calories but that is only in shots. I still consume less that way.

Good Luck on your new plan

Hello all!
I am new here. Alcohol is really a downfall for me. When I drink, I cant just have a few. I try but a few always turns into a six pack and a couple shots. One night I racked up almost 2000 calories just in alcohol. Dang Apple Ritas! I think my main problem is I do not drink just to take the edge off and relieve some stress. I drink to get drunk. Don't get me wrong I do not get crazy, sloppy or mean but basically I want to eat after words and pass out! Geez, when I put that into words it sound awful. Sad but true....

So anyway my goal is to start with cutting down on how many days a week I drink. I want to only drink one day during the week (mon-thurs) and one day on the weekend (fri, sat or sun) On those days I am not going to limit myself. I want to try this out for a month then begin to cut back on how much I drink on those days.

M=AF. I didn't get my exercise in (long story) but hope to make up for it today with a lunch hour cardio session. (Elliptical or TM...hmmm?) Then after work, yoga and bowling. With bowling I will NOT be AF tonight, but I'm aiming for moderate. Send me moderate vibes tonight!

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.

That's great for lake/cabin visit, Georgine! Something about the lake just makes me want to drink!

Sun - Mon = AF
Had a great day Monday for food and exercise. I've been up since 2 a.m. Too much on my mind. Will be a long day!

I don't even remember which days are AF but nothing over done. we went to the cabin yesterday so had a little baileys in my coffee and later a small margarita. It was so hot sat. everyone had a ball in the lake but yesterday it was cooler and a cold wind, still nice to be outside. I am trying to get things back under control a little at a time.
Have a great week everyone, Georgine emoticon
