I'll keep you up to date
Good for you! It is a vicious circle. 30 days, while it may not be easy should be long enough to break the habit. After that, if you decide not to quit entirely, think about the once a month idea. Of course, alcohol is empty calories and even worse, keeps your liver busy processing it instead of processing the fat you eat so you get a double whammy.
I'm assuming you are here to lose weight in conjunction with getting the beer monkey off your back (mine was pretty comfy there!). You'll be amazed at how fast the weight will come off once you lay off the beer and junk food.
Let us know how you're doing, and if you slip, get right back at it. I don't know how many times in the past my weight loss attempts have been derailed by "all or nothing thinking". No one is perfect and one slip is no reason to even consider throwing in the towel.
