    I use diet tonic & gin OR vodka. I've read there are 0 calories in this. However, MFP counts otherwise.

    Thoughts?

    I'm in for a Dry January. This will be my fifth consecutive one. Of course, all the other months of the year I've been "dry" too.

    No good comes to me from alcohol. I'm a better person, healthier in general, and weight is much easier to maintain without alcohol.

    I literally cannot think of one good reason to drink alcohol. Not one.

    Same here!

    Gin and Vodka have calories. around 65 or so for a one ounce shot...most people use 2 ounces or more in a drink...so yeah, it has calories.

    I'm so in! After all of the wine from Christmas Eve to now, have never felt more bloated, sluggish, and overall just crappy and not proud of myself. My biggest downfall is wanting wine at night when I'm watching movies with my husband. I'm going to try to swap it out for different flavored sparkling waters. Wish me luck! Let's all do this together!

    @JLatham325
    Vino / esp red vino is my biggest weakness. My family owns bars, my friends own bars - I get free drinks next to my work place—- it was really adding up. It’s around me socially all the time. Luck needed here too! Happy to see so much positivity in these posts though for a healthy change in January :)

    I will be partaking in dry January, no alcohol. Those of you that quit drinking to lose weight, when did you notice weight loss with not drinking empty calories? Second week?

    Congrats on your efforts, but you do need to realize that calories come from other foods too. Any excess of calories will lead to weight gain. Any reduction below your recommended intake will lead to weight loss.

    I’m doing Whole 30 so no alcohol for me. Reset for January.

    I started weaning off on Christmas, it is rough. Going to keep at it though.

    All alcohol has calories.

    I’m going to try the dry January, I live here in Vermont where we have lots of craft beer, which I love to partake in. I would love to lose 25lbs

    I’m in! Excited to see the changes in how I feel and look! I’m hoping to make this longer than just a month!
