Look At The Bright Side Of Giving Up Alcohol

This Sparked Me!

When I first decided to quit drinking because it was thwarting my weight-loss efforts I felt deprived. "Everyone else was drinking - - Why can't I drink too? I want to join the party" But now I'm reminding myself of the benefits of staying alcohol-free. The main one is that I'm more alert and less tired now. No hangover for me now !

    I also have cut down to 2 glasses of wine: 1 during the week and 1 on the weekend. I was having 2 glasses a day and was tired and and just not with it. I feel every so much better.

    I replaced "alcohol" with "pizza" in this post. I can relate better now. Everyone else is eating three slices of pizza, why can't I eat it too? I find that without it I am a lot less lathargic. Pizza just slows me down and it slows my efforts down too. Thanks for the post! I hope I can give up pizza like you did alcohol! emoticon

    I have been thinking that drinking alcohol -- even though I do not do it to excess -- is impacting my ability to loose this weight. Thanks for sharing.
