Oh boy. The wine that I had must have caught up with me! I was down to 177 yesterday and this morning the evil scale said 181! Noooooo..... HOW on EARTH could 4 pounds have appeared overnight?? It's my own fault and the only good thing about it is the shock and horror that I feel will really make me rethink doing that again! I am going to remain positive and move on.

    You could drink a lot of water and "gain" four pounds. There is no way you can gain four pounds pounds of actual weight overnight.

    Hey girl, more than likely water retention as wine is dehydrating and I reckon the body holds on to water when that happens. My trick is to drink the same amount of water as the wine and I definitely feel better for it. I ain't giving up my wine! emoticon

    Type 1 diabetics report that, at first, wine/beer/alcohol makes their blood sugar drop drastically - they often wind up hospitalized with dangerous hypoglycemia. The next day, however, their blood sugars are through the roof.

    My DH is an alcoholic who is developing metabolic syndrome - already has high blood pressure and his sugar is now on the rise as well - so I've been looking for a scientific explanation for how our bodies metabolize alcohol in terms of sugar and insulin response and there is suprisingly little info out there.

    I drink quite a bit myself and have been weaning down for years. It's what put on most of my pounds in the first place, and is one of the things that keeps me losing so slowly as well.

    Alcohol always does me like that. Darn alcohol!
