I finally have my head in the right place. I've had a couple of good weeks (AF during the week, mostly, and staying in calorie range, mostly). If anyone is around, we could support each other. Even with my head in the right place...it's still hard.

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

I'm in the same boat. Like to have a couple of drinks in the evening. The weekends are even worse. Seems all I ever do is have drinks. My social life revolves around drinking. I am hoping I can find some support in this group if anyone is left. Two days AF.

I'm late to this party...but finally here. How are you all doing? I had an AF day yesterday - for the first time in FOREVER, and I'm working on another today. Prior to 2011, I had things working well in this department, but then life changed and back to bad habits I went. I'm working to get back to what will be forever normal, though. We can all do this - how's it going for you all?

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

Hi friends

Yes I also am struggeling with the wine, ....... and the salty and cheasy stuff that goes down after the wine. I eat healthy all day - when I do not travell. And I do travel a lot. I do love a tonic and cranberry (diet) drink, and sometimes that can keep me from starting the first glass of wine.
But other days, I am just to worn out and cannot keep the balance. Welcome to the team. I have joined a cuple of these chat groups, sometimes this team is active, sometimes the other ones are. Look at my spark page if you want to know about the other groups

My mother heads in for surgery tomorrow..(cancer related) so my mind is racing..all I want to do is drink something and eat a HUGE meal! yes...comfort!! BUT, I am going to try and do laundry, and maybe get a run in. We shall see how this goes. GOOD LUCK TO BOTH OF US! emoticon

This sounds so familiar! I'm the same way. Start amping it up at the gym and undoing it all with a six back at night or a bottle of wine. I can't do it anymore. I'm day 4 no booze and so cranky... hopefully this gets better right?

Hi all-
My name is Kay and I am here to hopefully, finally try to cut back on my drinking to get rid of some of this weight! I am so ready for change! I think I am such denial, working out almost every day, eating right...and I think what the heck...why am I gaining weight??!! Oh ya....must be that bottle of wine every night. Every morning I say that to myself, but by afternoon/early evening....I forget my goals and go right back to it. I always think, well I can start tomorrow! Well, it is tomorrow and I have to do this. I am so glad I am not alone and look forward to getting some support here!
