wine... oh why?!?!

Thursday, January 31, 2013

I'll be totally honnest with you: my biggest problem in all that journey, it's wine. I can be the most dedicated person for the fitness part of my weight loss, I can track everything, make wise choise 95% of the time, I'm not tempted by fast-food or sugar dessert... but I can't say no to a glass of wine.

Don't get me wrong, I don't drink all the time. Usually I have some friday night with my husband when the kids are in bed, sometimes saturday night too. It's ok to have a drink, but I feel it's something I must give up since I'm a slow loser and it seems to have a big effect on my metabolism even if I fallow the moderation guideline. http://educalcool.qc.ca/en/

I don't think you have to elimate all acool if you want a healthy lifestyle... it could be part of it in moderation. I just say I feel like it's a reason why I loss weight slowly, because I'm kind of stuck for like 3-4 days after each friday night and the scale won't move for that time.

I feel like it's the only place I have to still make change in this journey, but I'm not quite ready for this. I love my friday night with my husband...

Do you have something that you struggle to change of give up?
I know there's all kind of opinion about alcool, I think there's a place for it in our life maybe not in our journey to weight loss (not in our calories that for sure

Have a good day!!!

    Yep! I count points and it helps. You can have what you want just not all at once. Slow is ok, just stay the course!

    I do have a hard time thinking of giving up certain foods... chocolate, for instance, or cheese or bread. I haven't had alcohol in a while because I've been having my children and nursing them, and I haven't wanted to take any chances with that... but I can imagine that if it weren't for them, I'd want a glass of wine or something from time to time. I think taking a moment to indulge ourselves with a little pampering might be more worthwhile than not relaxing in effort to move across the scale more quickly...

    Mm. Or peanut butter... that's something I eat a little of every single day...
