Holiday McBoozey

Typical holiday anxiety. I'm reminded right now of being derailed last Thanksgiving. I had lost about ten pounds, and it took a while. Then some friends and family came out to visit for Thanksgiving, we spent five straight days eating and drinking, and I put all the weight back on. And it took until almost February to get back on track.

Well, Husband's brother and a mutual friend are coming out here and will be at our house from Wednesday til Sunday. I'm really looking forward to seeing them again, but I NEED to not lose sight of where I am and where I am going. Exactly where are you going?

Alcohol has been a problem, as it always is. The stress of my life right now makes me spend the majority of my day anticipating getting home and being drunk. This is a sign of a drinking problem. I fear I'll never sleep without it. Even though I know you don't sleep as deeply once you have metabolized the alcohol, it beats not falling asleep to begin with. I wish Husband hadn't given up weed, or at least that he would be okay with me partaking. Oh well. I'll just kill my liver with the booze. The alcohol has also brought my weight loss to a crashing halt.

I'm not as despondent as this post is making me sound. Things are fine right now, they're just not great and I'm wallowing in it. And I'm a little drunk.
