performance: gaining 0.3 lb a week

I work at a desk all day (statistician), but try to be active still. I workout at lunch, take walkng breaks, and am active with my husband and daughter. I was a ballet dancer, but when I quit that, I gained a lot of weight (I never had to watch what I ate before). That all changed when my husband I started trying to start a family, as I wanted to be a good influence. Now, my daughter is 5, and the three of us will exercise together!

I have been in maintenance mode for awhile, but like logging my food, during the week at least, just to keep myself honest in terms of how much I am eating. I try to eat less (1500-1600 calories) during the week so I can splurge more on the weekends. Also, I burn less calories when working out than someone my age, height, and weight does, which makes it all the more important that I stay within the range I have given myself.

Does Wine Help With Weight Loss?
You could sort of say that I lost weight by drinking red wine because before, I'd been drinking cocktails. It was just when out with friends, but it was often enough. I drink wine much slower than cocktails, and each glass has less calories, so overall, I was consuming less calories. However, if you don't drink a lot already, it won't help adding it. Not drinking any alcohol at all would have meant faster weight loss.
