    No Drinking Challenge

    Hi All
    I decided to post this on here to see if it makes me stick to it!
    I've been doing sw for about 12wks now and have lost just over a stone, which I'm thrilled with! I think my losses would be so much better if I didn't drink though. I spend all week playing catch up after drinking (usually way over syns without even going in to food!) at the weekend- not every weekend I should add. I know you can drink on sw if you save your syns but my willpower goes out of the window so I want to cut it out altogether for a few weeks.
    Just recently there has always been something going on- birthdays/weddings etc but the next social event is a BBQ at the end of the month so I'm going to abstain until then.
    I don't feel I have a problem with alcohol- I'm only 23 and enjoy drinking and going out with my friends- but I feel like it can become habitual to go to the pub on a weekend.
    Would anyone like to join me?

    We'll done on your loss so far amazing!

    Im the same as you with drinking, I'm also 23 and only drink on a Saturday night. I'd like to join but I have a few Saturday night events coming up so I may adapt mine to drink within allowed syns rather than drink nothing at all (if I drink nothing at all my friends will buy me tequila and make me drink it, it's happened before haha).

    I'm thinking gin and slimline tonic x4 is around 15 syns?

    Hi Beckie
    Good idea! If you have the willpower to drink within syns then that would work! Not sure- is gin about 4 syns per shot?
    If I'm attempting to be good I have extra dry martini- 2.5 syns each- with diet coke/lemonade if they have it.
    Friends don't help with not drinking do they! Urgh tequila of all things *gags*

    Hi Beckie
    Wondered how you were getting on? Did you try any martini?
    Ive stuck to it all weekend, Friday felt odd! I haven't missed it tho really- haven't had time to fit it in my mouth with the amount of pizza, flapjack and chocolate I've eaten
    Back to plan tomorrow, the food surely can't be as bad as the booze....

    Hi, hi, ive done ok thanks, I didn't try it yet but stuck to gin and slimline tonic. I did have more than I planned to though, then came home and ate 2 hifi bars . It could have been worse as I came home and ate potato wedges last week so it's a stop in the right direction


    big congrats on the not drinking! Do you feel better today for it?

    id love a pizza right now haha

    Well done for sticking to the g&t! And hifi bars, crikey it could have been much worse
    Im terrible for mixing (and shots!) once I've had a couple.
    I do feel better for it actually! Ive been doing all sorts and not got the groggy feeling or skint guilt trips!
    The pizza was totally worth it. I did create your own in asda and they always were my favourite. Not had one for over 14wks! I got all veggies on top so im sure it was a third superfree
    Thinking of doing success express Mon,tue and wed, you ever done it?

    Asda's are just so good. Its the BBQ sauce base, so yummy! You did well to share with your dad, im no good at sharing lol.
    Yeah its 2/3 superfree, 2hexs and count the higher syn values on synned stuff.
    Im hoping if i do it for the three days it might counteract the chocolate- which by the way i am still troughing, no willpower this wkend- so i might get into the 10s at WI!

    Wow a 10k! Are you a runner? I used to walk fair distances but can't seem to get my fitness back up before my knee starts packing in! I try and swim instead. Best of luck for it!
    Saturday wi may be the way forward!
    I was looking at your target and was wondering how tall you are? Im trying to figure out a good target for myself and originally thought id aim for 10st. I was this weight for my 21st. But looking back at the pics, I think a bit more wouldn't hurt- i dont want to look ill but "slim"...
