Only way I could turn down a dollar margarita is to tell myself there's almost no alcohol in it and it would taste bleh. Usually you get what you pay for but sometimes there are surprises.

My breakfast (in front of me now!) is leftovers from IHOP yesterday.

I usually have 4 when we have gone in the past....that is alot of calories! so it was easy to turn them down. The frozen ones usually give me a freezer head ache if I drink them too quickly. So another reason not to drink them and the fact that I will remain alcohol free until new years eve!
thanks for reading and for you post. hope you enjoyed your IHOP. I love their swedish pancakes with lingonberrys, yummy!

Seems you have adopted a good attitude. One day at a time, and no pressure.
From what I've understood, increasing protein and reducing carbs is the right path.
The more anything is refined or processed, in the food line, the worse it is for your health.
Alcohol is insidious, and a lot more of a weight gain cause than we realise or want to admit. Soft drinks are also especially bad, with sugared or chemicalled.

You may not miss it after a while.
I used to have a wine almost every day, then for some reason just stopped a few months ago.
I will have a glass now and then, but largely don't even think about it.

As long as your daily food regimen is one that feels comfortable and not deprivating, you should be able to stay on it.

thank you razzle, the meds I take are weight neutral....it is the over eating and drinking that is causing me to regain this weight that I lost.....
no stop in sight....until after my cruise.

I have regained all of my weight loss.
very depressing. I drank like a fish this past few months and this is why I gained the weight. The beers that I like are 300 calories and I could have 3 at night. an egg mcMuffin is 300 calories so that is like 3 egg mcmuffins a night, no wonder I gained the weight back.
sigh
wish me luck this go around.

Default Hi bizi

More weight on my end too. Can't stay active enough with my neck. Makes me very unhappy. I do like sweets, and that is my down fall. As you said ONE day at a time. I think about you and follow the posts, even if I don't write all the time. Take care Bizi, ginnie
