As I have mentioned in the past I love a good Friday night drink - and I have promised myself each and every week since I've had the Lap Band that it's not happening this weekened. Guess what? I have blown it again.
I am good all week watching my food make-up and quantities and ensuring that I am doing the right thing, and to be honest losing a couple of kg's each week has been do able, and not too difficult. Then on about Thursday I "get a hankering" about the Friday night piss-up ( a ritual that has been part of my life about 25 years) and when Friday night roles around after a long week at the office a switch in my head "flicks" and the Friday night piss-up is on again. I have no willpower on Friday night - what the hell is wrong with me????? The rest of the time I am focused like a machine on my weight loss goals.
Enough is Enough!!!!!
That's it no more Friday night merriment for the Regmiester! I haven't gone to the expense and effort of getting a Lap Band only to put back on half of the weight I've lost by drinking excessively once a week...... the net result is I am losing weight half as quick as I could be! Don't get me wrong I am ecstatic about the 31kg's dropped to date but it could've been alot more.
From now on their will be no more Friday night drinking sessions!!!!!!
Does anyone have any ideas which might make it easier to achieve this goal? I'm thinking other positive rewards- the Friday night drink is an old habit and it's hard to break let me tell you!
Any positive and constructive suggestions or input would be greatly appreciated......thanks

PS: Thought I'd put in a picture of my mate Jeff Fennech and myself at a recent charity event - my six pack will be like Jeff's one day!!!
PPS: I dropped 1kg this week down to 108.5kg - should have been 2kg's :(
