Personally, I'm going without alcohol until I reach my goal weight. The one week when I had a couple of drinks I had my lowest WI to date. I just want to lose weight and get healthy more than I want to have a drink.

Christmas Challenge: Complete 12/30/11 (SW 181.4/EW 172.8)

I'm a weekend wine lover, and saying no has been the hardest thing during my journey. I still allow myself a splurge for special occasions, but limit my intake to one glass (instead of two or three ). Try counteracting the splurge with some extra exercise, and drink lots of water.

Yes, I agree - wine spritzers are sacrilege to a wine lover

When/if I have one or two drinks, I exercise an extra hour that week.

I have done the same with a glass of wine or champagne and follow up with a BIG glass of iced lemon water.

Welcome to JC and the boards!
Yes, there are light beers and you can have the OCCASIONAL one but understand that if you aren't losing at the rate you want, well, you might need to cut out something even - heaven forbid - the beer until you get to goal and then you have to CAREFULLY work them in. I'm just sayin'
SW - 177.6
Goal! - 132
Returning Weight - 143
CW - GOAL AGAIN!!!

I have decided not to drink until I lose my first 25 pounds. It's been tough but like someone said I like being "all there" when I go out. PLUS---I have been sleeping through the night along with no night sweats or hot flashes any longer. That's a huge bonus!!! Now I have, at the max, two NA Beers or vsb's (virgin skinny ******). VSB's are club soda, lime and a splash of cranberry juice. Looks like the real deal and tastes great! I also found "mocktails" at Sam's club. Its crystal light flavored like, Mojitos, appletini's and margarita's. Few slices of lime, slice of apple and it's a great substitute with 5 calories/serving. And a little salt on the rim, with a lime and it tastes like the real deal too!!!

On the other hand...I've cooked this "free" veggie dish (Swiss chard, diced tomatoes, etc) and each time I gain weight the next day. So that's out and the vodka stays!
