Y’all know, I live my life like an open book.
Every week, I shamelessly share the up’s and down’s of my weightloss journey and all about my relationships with my friends, family, and No BS Women.
Today, I want to share more vulnerably about my feelings toward my drinking.
Like many women, there was a time I used several glasses of wine to take the edge off of an exhausting day.
Over the last two years, I’ve worked hard to understand and even redefine my relationship to alcohol.
I didn't decide to quit drinking cold turkey. Instead, I used the same mindset for handling my food urges to reduce my drinking by 75%.
I listened to other No BS women talk about the similarities in food and drinking urges, just like in my own experience. My response was to have a special overdrinking course created in my private membership to support their needs.
In today’s podcast, I’m talking to Angela Mascenik, who happens to be one of our No BS women and a life coach and podcaster committed to helping women stop overdrinking.
