Well, I did it! Booze-free for 2 whole months, and I feel so much better for it. I could easily go for longer, but 'tis the festive season, so it will be interesting to see how my body copes with a cheeky glass or two of vino.
And of course, no booze = no nibbles such as chocolate, cakes, crisps, junk in general, (not missed) and no bacon butties - a weekend treat (now they have been missed!)
I'm on week 9 of the plan, in the 'stone below' and I've lost a whole stone! It's been hard work, but I joined a new gym and now running for 30 minutes twice a week as well as using weights. Now need to pluck up the courage to join a class (I am so un-coordinated, it's not a pretty sight).
So far I've taken 4 bin bags of unwanted clothes to charity, and last night I cleared out another bag full. My wardrobe now contains clothes I can fit into - and feel fabulous in. No more opening the door and reaching for the 'cover-up' outfit that makes me feel old and frumpy, and anything that doesn't make me look good is a gonner.
I still have more to lose, and Christmas and New Year will be a challenge, but I know I can pick up the plan again in the New Year and start to feel fabulous all over again. Good luck to you all, wherever you are on your journey. Remember, you are in full control of your destiny. Lose the flab and love the fab!
