no, its not so much the calories its the fact that alcohol makes me feel sluggish the next day so I can't give 100%

I am staying away from alcohol for a while since I was diagnosed with high blood sugar. It is only difficult when I am watching car races with my boyfriend. Seems like something is missing then. Otherwise, I don't miss it.

Yep. Some weeks it might be a couple drinks, others it might be none. It really just depends on my mood.

Yes I do. I'm a moderate drinker (beer or wine), and it's my one indulgence I will not give up. It doesn't have a negative impact on my goals.

Yes. When I was actively losing weight I rarely drank during the week and was quite moderate on the weekends. Now in maintenance I still don't drink during the week very often and enjoy my wine on the weekend.

I don't do a whole lot of drinking, so on the occasion I do, I don't count. I just consume. Chances are I won't be eating much the next day! I don't do hangovers very well.

occasionally...like last night, we toasted my Dad for his birthday. We all had a glass of wine. That was it. I don't think any food or drink should be off limits but that you should have everything in moderation!

The only whining I do is red, white or even a nice blush from Provence. So its still an emphatic yes to alcohol....

I have cut back on my beergarita's - which is a beer bottle dumped upside down into a frozen margarita. Haven't had one since I started Sparking... (and yes, they are good).

My dad makes wine, and I've started helping him with it. I usually have a small glass in the evening.

Still on occasion, but not as often as I used to, which was most Saturday nights. Knowing how those calories add up makes me want to keep the alcohol for special occasions! And I'm not in college anymore.

I don't really care for drinking. Being 20, that should be assumed, but I have had alcohol time to time. I never drank in high school the way most kids did, and for that I'm really proud of myself. I can't stand the taste of alcoholic beverages, or the effects I feel from consuming them. However, my brother-in-law and his younger brother are looking to open a brewery, so they're always brewing up batches of new beers. When we have family get-togethers, they always bring their beers for us to try and I'll usually have one (because that's all I'll be able to handle, taste and alcohol-wise).
Also, I do travel quite a bit and when I travel I will drink but not a lot, of course. I see it as part of the traveling experience, like the three times I've been to Germany and the one time I got to go to Kenya. (I've only ever been tipsy once or twice - the most "buzzed" I've ever been - and was with either one of both of my parents).

No, I quit drinking awhile ago, but may have an occasional glass of wine, maybe one or two a year.

No. I want to save my calories for my food. I'd rather eat calories than drink them.

No. Quit drinking last summer and was surprised the pounds didn't start dropping off. Oh well - at least I do feel better. More energy for exercising. emoticon

I used to be a heavy drinker, now I am just a skinny drinker. Just kidding. We have had a 12 pack of beer in the fridge since Christmas and there are still 11 in there.

I have nothing against drinking at all. I had a favorite uncle that died an alcoholic at age 41 and I never want to get in that position.

Not any more! I did enjoy my rum & Diet Rite up through Jan. 2013 but realized that it was effecting my weight loss big time. So I quit! Now the weight is coming off so much easier and I'm actually creating a nicer waistline than I've ever had.

nope. I love teguilla, but it's to easy to start a binge when drinking so I don't even start. I wish I liked red wine, for the health benefits but I don't
