Once every 2-3 months I will have a Bud Platinum or two. 55 calories and worth it when I am in the mood for it. I figure it in on my calorie counter and still stay within my calorie range. For the most part, though, I feel those calories are better spent on healthy food rather than alcohol. The more I follow a healthy living plan, the less inclined I am to have the occasional beer.
Yes. I build it into my plan on the days I indulge, so that I don't go overboard!

I didn't drink much before because I have young children. I'd have a couple coolers here in there in the summer but I realized when I began to lose weight and get fit that sugary, calorie dense coolers were something I could live without. Now, I'm not going to completely write them off my list, I may still have the occasional cooler this summer while sitting around my inlaws pool and I'll have a few summery pina colada coolers and some wine when we do our child-free camping trips this year. But during the fall, winter and spring so far I've maybe had a few glasses of wine durning Thanksgiving (October, here in Canada), Christmas and 1 glass a month and a half ago at dinner at my inlaws.
I don't drink alcohol at all and haven't for a very long time.

I haven't made any real effort to change my occasional glass of wine with dinner, or the once in awhile cold-beer-on-hot-summer-day. Its usually light beer, so the carbs & cal's aren't that bad. Going all the way back to college, I never could drink very much--I'd get full and sleepy on one or two beers! :)
no I try not to drink any of my calories.......I don't even drink fruit juice. for me it's wasted calories.

I do enjoy a glass of wine now and then. When I first started with Spark back in January, I would have 1 small glass of a good red wine, every single day for my "snack." These days though, I tend to prefer food over wine! But will still have a glass or two, maybe 1x/week now.
Occasionally, I was going to have some drinks Friday night with my husband, but it did not end up that way since my 17 year old was going out with friends. I will not drink when she is out with friends just in case of emergency and we need to go get her.

I guess I'm lucky, the smell of alcoholic drinks makes me sick, although I tried to enjoy them when I was young, just couldn't hack them, they remind me of icky tasting cough syrup, lol. I have enough other food issues to tempt me, though.

The hubby and I split a bottle of wine on Fridays. It is our big treat!
Yes but only as a treat and in limited amounts. And mostly wine!

No, it's an appetite stimulant for me.

Yep! Wine is one of the great joys of life. I've had several days where wine is 20% of my calories for the day (I've cut back on everything else).... Martini's have LOTS of calories so I don't do those very often. Light beer and gin and tonics aren't too bad every once in a while. I just love food and drink!

I'm not a big drinker maybe a wine cooler twice a summer
