Monday I was out socializing all day and drank my points! Not what I would suggest as the best way of dieting. While most dieters will tell you to skip alcohol as we have a tendancy to lose our resolve and common sense after a few drinks, and we eat anything. I did just the opposite and didn’t eat at all. Not good. Luckily, my choice of drink when I am out is vodka and water, so I got plenty of water and each drink count was 2 pts. I have to say when you start out and you have 22 pts. to use, it can be quite a party! Needless to say, I didn’t have a lot of energy yesterday and didn’t really feel like talking to anyone, thus no blog.

Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day?
