That's a lot of calories!
Loon, forgive me but going by your picture your a female? 8 to 10 pints of lager? I think is be unconcious after 6! I'm not a huge drinker as such, is never have more than 4 cans or pints in an evening, its more of the habit I'm trying to get out of.

whoops, sorry that was cans of lager

08/01/2013 at 22:01

still too many I know :S but that's not been the case for the best part of a year now

I was about to say.... That much lager and legs like that then you must have the worlds most finely tuned metabolism!! Feeling good tonight good return to work this afternoon, now relaxing with a few pints.... Of water.... And the obligatory horlicks (other hot malted drinks are available)

A test for me tomorrow as I'm away on business in a nice hotel with an expenses account!

Thanks Mr F! We are going to watch Swansea v Arsenal on TV in the bar after dinner so a double test!

CHello gang...finding it tough going this year as I can resist all but temptation. Cracking curry last night and it just needed some help, honest!

not finding it too bad at the moment, but things aren't massively stressful, but I know there will be difficult times. I know there's a lot of media stuf at the moment saying the january on the wagon thing is a waste of time and can be harmful etc as can lead to binge drinking in february, but for me it helps break the habit of drinking all the time, and it's a test of willpower for me

although the comment inthe media that a couple of alcoholic drinks a week is good for you is very tempting

Fell off this one days ago, but being in Texas it's hard to get away from beer and steak. And pictures can be very deceiving - I've put on quite a bit of weight since this was taken.

Just to let you all know the first day of February is a FRIDAY, 

If it were in the week it would be fine but i think some people are going to have a blowout having been good for a month.

Not me, I'm committed to the wagon until at least April 21st which is the date of my next marathon!

I will be tempted then to drink but may well carry it on because I've made other commitments for later on in the summer. I know for a fact that alcohol affects my performance which is slow/plodding enough without!

I hope to be off to last week in March. Off to the pub tonight will drive so saving on taxis and booze, although soft drinks can be ludicrously expensive too.

In hotel on expenses... Drinking water and fruit teas

Madeline. l know that. But YOU said it was 2 days worth of calories. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooo.............l know you are you said you are but what am l?

Im finding this relatively easy at the minute. i've put my name down for working Saturday as well so l wont be tempted to go out Friday now. It's kind of double wammy really. Im not going to be spending money on the Friday, then im going to be earning it on the Saturday.

The trouble is that there's 2 cracking games of footy on on Sunday and that will put a lot of temptation in my way.

Getting a really good feeling from this now though and it's really nice to be able to keep coming on here and checking this thread to see we're all still doing fine.

Hope everyone else is getting on just fine.

Yep! Still, being on antibiotics for a throat infection does help.

Early night in hotel. Avoided bar after meal and feeling great for it.

Evenin friends! Another day! Happily ended up watching the Chelsea match tonight with several pints of water. Another clear head prepared for the morning.
Well done on the continued effort all, everyone's doing so well!

Evening all,

I think I might be tempted into a glass of wine on the 1st of February.

Everyone's doing really well, I'm impressed with DeliH and Running Kev in hotels with expenses and still sticking with the program.
