I am perplexed about alcohol: There is a definitely a problem somewhere with my weekly scale weights if I drink alcohol within that same week!!!! My husband & I like an occasional martini, and I don't want to abandon that practice, but I don't want to slow down my weight loss either.
I understand never to drink a mixed sugary drink: but the pure alcohol baffles me, along with the dry white wine? Since keeping track of all foods consumed, I created a food category also for the alcohol. I have watched the scale & two days after drinking I'm still not on track. This does not happen with drinking an occasional beer. I avoid beer, because of the high carb counts. Is this some sort of a body metabolizing problem? It is the natural sugar in the production of the alcohol that is the culprit? I'm not sure I'm even counting the calories correctly?. Using good websites for the calorie counts, but it still seems to slow down my weight loss? If I'm not exceeding my daily calorie count? why is this happening???
