    don't know why, but I REALLY fancy a drink of wine right now - why now? Someone talk to me and keep me occupied. I don't feel tired either so I won't be going to sleep for a few hours.

    Think it might be the almost spring like weather we had this weekend :character00238:.... makes me think of summer evenings with a bottle of wine!!!:devilangel:

    Ask yourself what is the benefit of having the wine?

    And what is the benefit of not having the wine?

    Then make your decision :)

    spoil sport. .... but I can make the immediate short term benefits of having the wine seem more appealing than the long term ones of not having the wine .... I know that but it is easy to avoid that little voice sometimes.

    But your reply has dulled the voice a little (it sounds like it is in the next room now rather than speaking directly in my ear) - so thanks. So I'll stay in here and not venture into the kitchen, incase the voice starts screaming at me

    What stops you just making a decision to not have it?

    If you don't have it just imagine how strong you will feel, the empowerment of showing self control can become a drug if you want it to!

    So if you make a decision now then why not take pride in that and then spend tomorrow smiling that you showed excellent self control and haven't knocked yourself from your real goal which is being a certain weight and staying there.

    You know you can do it, you don't need me to confirm that for you.

    well, this morning I can't even understand why having a glass of wine was such a desire last night. I'll try to remember that the desires are very short lived. Yes, I know about the alcohol and ketosis thing but even that wasn't going to put me off ..... Silly me. I'm very glad I didn't have any. I get weighed in an hour too ....

    I have my sensible head on again this morning
