So here I am. I cannot believe that I gained so much weight. From the time I was 13 years old I have eaten a very healthy diet. 3/4 veggies and some chicken and fish. Always maintained between 105 and 110. Now I am 60 and Two years ago my life became very stressful and I started to drink wine at night after work to relax. And behold I gained about 50 pounds.

Same here. I was never much of a drinker, just occasionally. Then I started with the wine every night and the pounds compounded, lol! I'm restricting my calories to 1000, so the wine, among other things, had to go. I drink a carbonated water with lime every evening, while my hubby still has a glass of wine. Sometimes I simply have a cup of tea. It does kind of suck, but when I get down, I tell myself that losing a pound is far more worth that glass of wine!

I've been there with the evening wine as well.
I nipped that in the bud and stopped completely.

It is possible, just set your mind to it.

I agree I think drinking defiantly added to my weight gain, I think I read somewhere once that a glass of wine was the equivalent (in terms of calories) as eating a doughnut, so if you have 4 glasses a night thats 4 extra doughnuts you have to burn off. I also got some good information on how carbs effect your body on

You need to find an alternative to wine that will reduce your life and job stress. Try working out and some exercises, it will take away all the stress.

Too much food.
You can just cook as much as you want and then portion it before you eat it. I'm not in your same situation because I cook for my family (no special diets or foods at home); but when I cook I already ...

Water Retention
I was once told drinking too much water is almost just as bad as not drinking at all. Hope this helps :):
