crs902's Journal, 20 May 2013

As I have said before, I cannot believe I let myself get to this weight AGAIN! I am giving myself six weeks to get back down to around 130. For me, my calories come from alcohol. I am a big drinker. At the end of the day, that one drink sounds so good and I find it hard to stop with one. This does not mean I get drunk every night, I just enjoy the relaxation qualities of alcohol. And with alcohol comes those pesky munchies. So, I am going to slow way down on the liquor and start eating healthier foods again. Here's to the next six weeks!
143.0 lb Lost so far: 15.8 lb.    Still to go: 18.0 lb.    Diet followed poorly.

I am the same way! I stay really healthy all day and then want to indulge in an end-of-the-day drink. Before dinner, I tell myself either dessert (froyo) OR drinks, not both. And, I have only one drink before dinner. And, if I don't have seconds, I have enough room in my calorie budget for another drink, sometimes even two, depending on my drink. I am just like you, not drinking to get smashed, I just keep sipping through dinner and then relaxing on the couch with the hubby for our precious time before long slog through bedtime routines for the kids. I also found drinks that are inherently low-cal: champagne! prosecco! vodka with diet tonic... even whiskey on the rocks for a night-cap/after-dinn drink. All are under 80 cals/serving. I also noticed that drier (less sweet) wines have fewer cals, so I don't have to measure those out. But the munchies... *phew* much harder to resist. Can you sub some healthy munchies or are you out at a happy hour/restaurant? Eat a bigger dinner, or do healthier apps instead of munching after dinn? What usually gets you?

Thank you for all the helpful advice. I love red wine and usually don't worry about having a glass of that at night. My downfall is my love of mixed drinks, especially as the weather gets warmer. I've learned to substitute the sugary juices with lime juice and a little agave. This usually does the trick. Snacking is only a problem when we bring bad foods into the house. I did WeightWatchers a couple years ago and went from 150 to 130. I know I can get back down and how to do it, I just need to feel motivated enough to do so :-) Since I'm at the point of losing weight or buying bigger clothes, it's time to get motivated again!
