Only remembered today that I was going without alcohol when I saw a chap in Tesco with a few bottles of Rattler. Thought about getting some but then remembered I'm not drinking. A whole month has almost passed without me even thinking about drinking. :-)

Thank God it's now February ... managed no alcohol all January but did not save money or lose weight as made up for the spending in Greggs :-o - Glass of red wine with dinner tonight (well it is supposed to be good for you isn't it) Good luck to those continuing until VLM though

Well done everyone who made it through January without a drink. Ididn't lose any weight either but that's probably because I thought I could eat whatever I wanted because I was marathon training. Back to weight watchers today so hopefully now with the training for VLM and no alcohol the weight will start coming off.

I have managed to get through January and the last two weeks with my OH being very ill in hospital without turning to the wine - to be honest it has been good not immediately reaching for the glass even when it would have numbed my emotions - so I will keep going to VLM if i have managed the last two weeks then the next two months shouldn't be too much of a problem.
