First off, don't stress out about it. I notice that alcohol tends to make me gain weight over night. If I drink (which is rarely) I can expect a 2-3 lb gain in the morning. I drink at home, so I am not eating anything with it. Up your fluids and do your excersice it will get better.

I feel your pain about the wine. Since I have retired I have gotten into the habit of having two glasses a night. Eight months later I noticed that I look and feel heavier and my clothes are snug. Time for a reality check... I'm going to work on only having my wine on the weekends. Wish you well.

Yeah, wine. I rarely drink now. I expect I will drink some after I reach my goal, but doing so now is bad for weight loss on so many levels.

That's what I do when I drink a glass of wine. One bottle of water per one glass of wine. It keeps me at just 2.

Sounds like good advice! If I feel my willpower giving out, I'll give it a try; certainly will give me something to look forward to,

Thanks for the cheers.

drinking water strategy
thanks, but that wasn't my question. I was talking about when to drink the water to accommodate the side affects.
