And I can only blame it on the open bottle syndrome in my house.
That's probably been one of the best "lessons" from this thread, for me. The whole "an open bottle is an empty bottle" thing. I didn't even realize it was a policy here 'til I read it from others.

Sure enough, when I keep the booze as a "when I'm out" treat, it's easier to manage. I don't go "crazy" like I thought I would, to "make up for" having been deprived. I'm not deprived at all. That's a great lesson!

1. have met my first mini goal of 5lb loss
2. must exchange exercise for glasses of wine (need to figure out the exercise/calorie rato)
3. only buy regular bottles of wine so I can not overinduldge when I do drink

Thank you all in advance for the support
Awesome goals! Tons of support here! Good luck to you! (And to all of us.)
