I made it 13 days without alcohol before choosing to make a pit stop and enjoy a few moderate beers with family.
I am proud to be able to say no when I want and yes when I want without over doing it! It is a choice…not a need 🙂 I have been very pleased with how things were going by not drinking; eating healthier, maintaining weight loss, more money in my bank account and more time at home. I am definitely choosing to stay on my path! I have taken a pit stop and I will get back on the wagon tomorrow and ride it until the next pit stop.
The beers I chose to drink this week were very delightful and flavorful. My palate had time to rest and it was like enjoying something for the first time again 🙂 I also like the beverage reward for maintaining my weight loss.
Here is to the next leg of the journey. I am going to work for a full 30 day separation from alcohol and then enjoy some beverages on our vacation west over Labor Day.
Moderation is always the key!
