I gave up my nightly wine and followed (not strictly) the South Beach diet, phase 1 for 2 weeks and lost 12 lbs. This is more than I have ever lost in such a short time and I was so jazzed, but then I screwed up over July 4th and drank and ate more than I should have and gained 3lbs. This week I got back on track and I'm trying to recoup the weight loss. So lame!! I know how hard it is to give up the booze, especially when you entertain a lot, but if you quietly consume some pellegrino water with a little lemon in a wine glass, you feel so much in control and are able to sleep through the night & wake up sans hangover!!!
