My husband and I LOVE craft (micro) beers. I've taken to just sampling his. I just can't justify the cals/carb in beer (or perhaps I'd rather eat!)

Other things are as good as I remember. I had a dirty martini last nite. Half would have been sufficient alcohol-tolerance-wise.

This week will be 3 days in a row of social events & deciding to having a drink (Th, fr, sat) + not micromanaging food intake (but not overindulging). I'll be matching that with 3 days of p1 (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday) before going back to my mostly p3 days.

I was talking with some friends last nite who have both lost & maintained. They said they eat VERY carefully Sun-Thurs & can be a little looser Fri & Sat (but not hog-wild binges). Keeping binge behavior in-check will be my biggest maintenance challenge. Some of that will be managed by not keeping preferred binge foods at home until I feel "safe" around them.
