2. How often do you go out socially?

3. Have you changed your eating habit in the last year or two?

<<1. When you go out with friends, what is your favorite drink (alcoholic or non).

Alcoholic, either wine or quality beer.  Non alcoholic, usually ice water.

2. How often do you go out socially?

On average 2-3 times a week.

3. Have you changed your eating habit in the last year or two?>>

Yes, gradually going more and more healthy and clean eating, less processed.

In winter I always go for a nice warm rich glass of Shiraz, Malbec or Rioja.  In summer I love a cold crisp pinot grigio.   I rarely drink mixed drinks with the exception of an occassional mojito or margarita but that's pretty rare.  

2. How often do you go out socially?

Almost every other week we try to connect with friends since we are without the girl on those weeks... even if we don't meet up with friends we try to go out on 'date nights'  for dinner or up to a woman's T-dance or for a singalong night at a cute local gay bar where I friend plays piano... in summer we like to have friends over for drinks and cheese and crackers on the deck.

3. Have you changed your eating habit in the last year or two?

Sigh.  I try.. always.. and I fail most of the time but I am better in incorporating more protein and fewer carbs and vegetables and we've done a really good job of eliminating most convenience or processed foods... but you know.. still fat ;-)

"It's not a diet, it's a sucky new way of life" ----------- LOL, I do have days where that slogan fits, but most of the time, I actually find it ok.

Yes, still Wednesday, but it was late when I posted (where I am), so I thought I would skip to tomorrow.

I was out with friends a week or so ago and a table over ordered a drink with a flavored vodka in them, someone remarked that we were all old enough to remember when the flavor of vodka was...vodka.  LoL

Green olives Lauren?  DH had a work friend that ordered his martinis with lots of olives too and they always came out with like three, blech, but martinis are nasty, Lol.  

I never had a "plain" or "dirty" martini but the flavored (cucumber, watermelon, chocolate) ones are YUM.ME lol

That drink sounds refreshing spring! :) Good for you all who are on WW, My mother swore by WW and she worked that program they'd create for her well. I think the commercials are great too, Jennifer Hudson is a better model than the stick thin that endorse other weight loss plans (Marie Osmond?)

It is really good. Everyone had to try a sip lol. I still do the point system from 2001 too. lol.
