It's not like I have to do it.
I can stop any time I want.
Being sober, that is.
It's been an odd week. I've been experimenting with weekday sobriety. I took a look at my diet and noticed that I've been putting down a bottle or so of wine every night for the last month. If you consider that a serving of wine has between 110-120 calories (per 150 ml) then an entire bottle is between 550 to 600 calories. 7 bottles of wine, therefore, would be about a pound of weight. Continued consistent consumption of several cases of wine equals me becoming Jabba the Hut in short order.
Of course, it's not like I couldn't take calories out of other places in my diet. Last night I made one of my famous mondo burgers: 1/4 lb. Hamburger patty, pan seared and finished in the oven topped with sauteed mushrooms and brie on toasted rosemary sourdough bread.
On the other hand, I dropped four pounds when I got on the scale this morning, so, who knows?
