Haha...... TOO TRUE ! After I cut my drinking to 3 times a month or so.... I found that I had way more time and ambition to do other things. It was a bit of a tough pill for me to swollow as well, being that I only really drank when I was at pubs..... and now I really miss the pub life ! Family and health from now on though... and thats never a bad thing ! Keep it up, as hard as it may be =)

Nah, you got it all wrong. I have yet to be hungry ONCE after two years of weight loss journey. If you're hungry, you're doing it wrong.
Now, the alcohol... I can't help you there. Generally, I'd suggest you simply get used to sober life - you'll be surprised how much nicer it is when you're aware of your surroundings. Smile

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Hunger is a normal part of life. The natural progression for naturally thin people is to get hungry, go look for something to eat, eat until you are no longer hungry, and forget about food until you get hungry again. So learning to live with hunger is a step in the direction of developing good eating habits.

I find drinking alcohol makes me snack in the evenings, so I only drink now when I dine out.

I have found constant hunger is an adjustment to a new eating style. Change is good.
