No matter what my friends say "Alcohol" is not good while you're trying to loose weight, I drink EVERY WEEKEND." I'm finally saying "no more alcohol" at least while I try to loose weight, I went from 165 to 236 lbs in two years and part of it was the alcohol!
I think all alcohol is bad, any suggestions?

A great way to relax? floating in the hot tub. Don't turn it up all the way, just warm enough to feel like a warm bath, get in to one of the "seat" areas, and lay back, close your eyes, let your feet float and relax. The built in seat keeps you from sinking and drowning, but you can still feel buoyed and "weightless". I find it a great way to totally relax.175
Do not drink alcohol before doing this, ever!
I was losing very slowly until I went alcohol free for 40 days. Weight came off much quicker then. Now I strive for balance. Drink alcohol only 2 days per week max. Amazing what this little change can do to speed up weight loss.
At 7 calories per gram, alcohol is a terrible choice for someone who wants to be healthy and/or lose weight. If I drink alcohol, I add a glass or 2 of water in between each alcoholic drink. I try to limit alcohol to weekends only. Its great to be able to have dessert instead and still hit my goal!
