I need to lose about ten stone this year - heaviest I've ever been at 23 stone and miserable with it - and conveniently also need to cut down dramatically on my drinking.

I'm not doing anything dramatic - I'm going to try to avoid drinking in the week, and I'm tracking calories.

7 days in and no drink so far (felt crap over the weekend to be fair so didn't want a drink anyway), but hopefully by cutting out the bottle and a half of wine every night and the sandwich on the way home from work, I should chuck the weight off pretty quickly.

Get yourself a pull-up bar that attaches to a door frame.

Game changer for me. Gyms are ****. :thup:

Good Luck :thup: Trying to kick the bottle and a half of wine a night myself and the ciggies!

Got to agree, used to use one and was quite proud of my acheivements. Could pull myself up and do the leg lift and hold while pulling myself up (if you saw me, you'd understand why that is quite an acheivement). Both front and rear arm lift as well.

Need to get back on it as not used it in some time.

My dry Jan has now become "not getting p*ssed Jan" after two pints at the game on Sat and a glass of red with dinner last night.

Perversely, I'm looking forward to not having to drink as much to feel a buzz!

After a bottle of wine - nothing at all!

Bottle and a half a night?! Are you not forever hungover?

Good luck with it, if the drinking is perhaps down to boredom, is there a hobby (active or non-active) you guys could also implement into a few nights a week to keep you away from the vino?

Well I'm a week in and I've not touched a drop of alcohol.

The weekend was more difficult, I've become too used to Saturday night crack open a bottle of beer/wine and relax, so this weekend I was a bit at a loss what to do with myself. Ovaltine was the solution. :|

Emptying the fridge and putting the beer in the garage and the white wine under the stairs has helped. If I open the fridge and it's there then I'm liable to drink it.

Not going to the pub wasn't so hard either, no-one else is drinking so no temptation yet.

This week is the key week - if I can get to Monday without a drink then I should be okay for the rest of the month.

Yep, slightly, although I guess you get used to it. I was doing horrible poos first thing every morning.

Functioning alcoholic through habit rather than necessity.

I'm not kicking the booze entirely but any change is positive from that starting point!

Excellent idea, Smonnie. Alcohol as you know, is highly calorific.
Your liver will also now love you forever..
Best of luck with it & keep us updated, if you want. :thup:
