    Thanks Melbi

    Just what I wanted to hear :twisted:

    I really knew this but have been determinedly trying to ignore the fact that the reason I have not lost as much weight as I would like is totally down to wine!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for putting this info back in my face - I think :wink:

    LOL Lauper

    Trust me hun I too try and hide myself away from this fact. Although I haven't ever really had a weight problem, I can put weight on (clothes become too tight) I never ever weigh myself!

    When clothes become too tight I know the only way to get back to 'a comfy fit' is to stop the alcohol intake.

    In fact, if I don't drink alcohol for a month I can be guaranteed to lose quite a lot of weight :shock:

    I'm glad I jolted you back to reality (I think lol)

    Hi Laups,

    I too was a bit concerned about my drinking and weight loss and sent off for a NHS booklet all about alcohol. In it, it says 'if you added three or four gin & tonics a day to your usual diet, you would put on 4lbs over four weeks' :!:

    Gives ya something to think about...... :roll:

    Li'l jan :bubbly:

    Thanks for the info - it has jolted me out of a false sense of security where I thought I could drink wine and weight would still come off. I have lost weight but without the wine it would have been more. Will focus now!!

    I very rarely touch any alcohol - but I don't loose weight either!!

    I find Slimline tonic water gives me wind and that makes me feel thinner....!
