So THAT'S why alcohol is bad for weight loss...
Thursday, April 12, 2012
On the 6th, last Friday, one of our friends was having a birthday party. The only times I drink alcohol is New Year's, birthdays, and weddings. Other than that, I have no reason to. So for my friend's party I bought a bottle of my favorite drink, Hpnotiq (the blue one) that also came with a sampler of the purple one, and a six pack of Mike's hard limeade. All I drank that night was the little sampler, and about 1 cup of Hpnotiq mixed with a bottle of Mike's hard limeade and half a can of 7up. Before drinking, I weighed about 155-156.
Remember how one of my goals this month is to drink more water? Last week was successful, except for Saturday and Sunday. I did not drink enough water on those days. I also remember feeling bloated on Saturday and all my joints were swollen on Sunday.
When I weighed myself again on Monday, the scale showed 165. How does a person gain 10 pounds within a few days? Alcohol. Tuesday the scale showed 162, Wednesday was 162.8, and now today showed 159.8. Yup, definitely alcohol. I did eat like crap one day last week, but I know I didn't eat enough calories to gain 10 pounds lol
So lesson learned, and hopefully this will help other people out as well.
