With you on the damage wine can cause! It has always been a weakness esp when I'm with sisters and close family...Recently we lost my mom to alzheimers. Between the family pow-wows, the stress, travel and the holidays there was plenty of it around.
How does everyone/anyone keep it at bay? What are the pitfalls? Also I find my stomach is delicate now that I'm walking the tightrope trying to maintain. This holiday I found alcohol and too much food can actually make me feel kinda sick though....am hoping that repercussion sticks! It might help!!
