Nope. I never developed a taste for alcohol. I cook with a little wine, which vaporizes off that rotten fruit/chemical taste that puts me off. What's left is nice on the food.

I'll probably drink water, SF-sweetened drink mix, tea, etc. I like juice! but have to dilute it because it's too sweet for me these days.

...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...

I don't drink my calories. So I will be having water, black coffee herbal tea, or diet soda. Or maybe Crystal Light on occasion.

A little here and there....it's just such empty calories.

lol, I have to consult my tracker to see how many and of what type I can fit into my range.

Going out and having, say, 3 glasses of red wine is about 375 calories. 3 Cosmopolitans is almost 600 calories :(

I will drink water, diet Sierra Mist or low sugar sparkling grape juice. I might have a glass of wine with our Christmas Eve meal, but I'll see how I feel. I'd rather save the calories for an extra dessert or one of grandma's cookies

I would love to have a glass or 2 or wine on Christmas, but that always seems to result in my over-eating/grazing all afternoon and evening, so not quite sure yet. Hmm, the dilemma....

I'm not much of a drinker but I do like an occasional drink. A little Baileys, Kahlua or peppermint schnapps in some hot chocolate (Sugar free of course), a margarita with Mexican food, a martini on New Years. It's an occasional indulgence. Too many calories that I would rather eat most of the time. And since I can't stand beer and only rarely find a wine that I like it's easy to not drink often.

I have 2 bottles of chocolate wine that I was given last year if someone wants to come over and share!

Yes, but no more than "usual" - i.e. a glass of wine here and there.

Goal 1 - break 200 (46 pounds lost)**DONE**
Goal 2 - leave obesity behind (BMI 29.9, at 185#) **DONE**
Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)

maybe a small amount of wine on XMAS but otherwise no

No, I don't feel like it's a necessary need to drink.

Progress may be slow, but it happens!
No such thing as last place only finishers.

I'm not a big drinker ... but my family will have wine with dinner sometimes, and I am sure I will have a little of that.

And my sister & I usually put a little Bailey's in our hot chocalate on Christmas morning. Yum!

No. I dont like to waste money on things that arent very good for me.

The true failure is when a person neglects to try, out of fear of failing.

I've never been much of a drinker, but I might have a wine cooler

Starting to like the new me!
Waiting for my garden to come to life!
