So I finished Dry January 30/31 days. Not a slip up but intentionally had a drink on Sunday with friends we hadn't seen for 8 months. And whilst I found it a 'challenge' on the 3 or 4 social occasions during the month I have to say most of the time I didn't really think about it. Mainly because I'm not a regular week night drinker.
Having lost 2.5lb in Jan despite not drinking didn't feel that successful. I put it down to eating more bread. Weirdly I seemed to develop a craving for it. So I'm ditching it in February. I suspect this will have a greater impact on my weight loss success than not drinking alcohol.
Anyone care to join me?
