When will I learn?

Well I met a friend for dinner last night and feel like I stayed on point for the most part but ended up limiting my food because I had a couple to many beers with our appetizer dinner. I will say this. I was never in a situation where I was out of control. I was not drunk. I just really like beer. We were drinking Guinness and if any of you drink Guinness you may understand my problem. So whats the problem you ask. I have a hard time stopping at 2. I end up having 4 or 6 or possibly more. I have figured out that this process will take years to learn and that there will be times when you need a refresher in what to do. Right now my 2 big goals are to begin to say no more after a couple of beers and to begin to limit my sodium intake.

I am not sure if I am looking for suggestions or personal antidotes or what but any comments are welcome.

Matt - I'm not a big beer drinker, so I can't really comment on that, but it obviously is a sort of trigger where you can't stop at just two. I was like that with Diet Coke (thankfully that has no calories). There are certain things (like Skinny Cow icecream) I can't even tempt myself with. Don't worry too much..just pick yourself up and get back on the program!! best wishes!

That's why we get Weekly Points. If you get your healthy guidelines in and splurge a bit, don't feel guilty. It all works out in the end.
