Over my many years of drinking, I’ve put on quite a bit of wine gain, meaning I’m overweight. I have about 30 pounds to lose. One of my goals for cutting drinking is weight loss.
I looked in the mirror today and couldn’t believe it. I’ve let myself go, between getting married and having a child, the weight hasn’t come off.
Last summer I was walking about two miles daily during the workweek and biking three to four days a week at least 5 miles each time. I lost some weight, but never enough because I was still drinking. I would actually come home, eat, have wine, then bike. Sometimes I was definitely buzzed on the bike.
I’ve decided I’ve had enough, I want to be fit and feel good. I want to stick to something. I’m worried too. Like any addict, I want instant gratification and when I don’t get it, I’m frustrated. I know it will be a long journey.
Often times I get really gung ho and into something, then when I don’t see results, I lose interest and start to slip. I don’t want that to happen. I will just need to keep a positive mind and attitude.
