    Hi IJM,
    How did you get your photo to be bigger? I tried posting a few from my trip to the gardens... but they are really small.

    HI SSD - Mrs. IJM has to put up with a lot from me, so when I can do the little things that are special - I jump on them!

    Choice - There may be an easier way but this is what I did:
    Upload my jpg to photobucket.com
    Once then, I go to edit and then resize
    Then I usually change width - the height measurement will automatically adjust
    Then "replace original" - if you don't do this you will have both the original size and the resized - in Photobucket, they will look the same. So you might end up selecting your original ""small" picture.
    Finally take the IMG tag and paste it into your MWO message. Do a preview and see if that is what you want. If not, just repeat the steps above and use a different measurement.

    Let me know if this is confusing and I write it out more detailed.

    IJM

    Well, I had one more night to “sow my wild oats” and while I was not AF, I thought that I moded pretty good. I had planned this for a while and I was “hell bent” on doing it. The cool thing is that I didn’t get hammered, just lightly toasted. I was telling Choice that the club we went to was BYOB so I only took a small bottle of Bacardi – that way even if I finished the whole bottle (which I didn’t) not too much damage would be done. And since we went to the club via limo, I didn’t have my car there to run out to get more rum. Finally, I followed each drink with an equal amount of soda water with lime. I did make so many trips to the bathroom that I formed a close personal relationship with the urinal.

    It was an awesome night and I now have total resolve to be AF. *Maybe* in a few months, if I am 100% compliant, as a treat I might do another byob club thing with a limited supply. But that is long down the road. At this point, I’m going to work on one day at a time.

    Hi IJM,
    It's really good you were able to drink safely and be in charge of your intake. I know you were planning it for a long time and it sounds like you enjoyed yourself. Good on ya! It's Sunday with you so have a good one. Maybe check in Monday for the One Day at a Time. And post about more thoughts of your good night out. I think is really cool that you have such a lovely relationship with your wife and you guys do date night with style. But I know you are worried about your health. So don't be a stranger.

    Well, a new Day 1 AF in the making. It's 7PM and generally I would already be ending my second rum and diet coke or 3rd glass of wine. Will, I just finished my 6th glass of tea and am thinking about a cup of decaf coffee in a bit. Right now the cravings are not terrible - don't get me wrong - I'd freaking love to have a little something (of course we all know that little something turns into a big something) so I'm not gonna head down that road. Instead, me and Mrs. IJM are setting on the couch doing some last minute on-line Christmas shopping. 95% of every gift we purchased has come from Amazon. I have dinner in the oven (2 delicious Nutrisystem dinners...). I think I will head to bed around 9 and read for a while.

    Just a quick shout out to all the get folks that post on this site - you are all an inspiration that really helps me. It's amazing how I can start reading a thread and the next thing I know, I've been into it for a few hours. I just downloaded a couple of Kindle books that I am looking forward to starting. If you have a Kindle, join the Kindle unlimited book club. It more than pays for itself!

    Way to go! Didn't think I'd see you until your Monday. Your evening sounds lovely.. I bet you are going to be feeling great in the morning. No more worries about the weekend, went down a success. Same as Sunday. Now I am going to try and do the photobucket thingy.

    Cool. If you get stuck, PM me or give me a shout on FB. I can do a Web-X from my desktop at work where you can see what I am doing on my screen so I can walk you through it. But it's really not that hard once you get into it. Like I said earlier, there may be an easier way, but i found that one to work well for me.

    And yes, As much as I enjoyed last night, I'm glad it's behind me. It was really on my mind how it was going to go down... Would I get sloppy drunk? Embarrass Mrs. IJM? Not be able to stop once I started? etc. Now I have nothing in the near future that I can think of that puts me in a situation where I have to make those choices.

    Talk at ya' later....
    IJM

    Coming up on the end of Day 2. I’ve been really really busy all day long. Got up early and went to the gym. Then at work I am dealing with a huge acquisition for one of my customers that has lots of challenges. So I just got home a few minutes ago and I am physically and mentally drained. This is the point where I would be pouring my first rum and coke. But not tonight. I really really really want one though. I just poured a huge glass if tea and am about to start dinner. I find that once I eat dinner the cravings pretty much disappear for the evening… Not sure what is up with that but not gonna question it. I’m wondering how I am going to make it through the week. Then there are no plans for this weekend which is dangerous. But I am not going to worry about that now. Now I am going to worry about now – the next 5 minutes – and think of how good I will feel about myself in the morning.
