    Try Diet Coke and Rum. Or my personal fave, Vodka Soda with a little lime :)
  • Thank God I'm not alone. Try some blended scotch/whiskey 69 cals per ounce.
  • I drink Gin and Key Lime Zero Water from Wal Mart! Tastes great and the zero water has no sodium, where diet tonic does. I asked the manager at the bar I go to if she would buy it in addition to the diet tonic.

    I love white wine on a Sat night but its the munching that goes with it... and if i overdo it then its the hangover munchies the next day as well!

    I drink what I drink and just try to burn off the calories :drinker: . I did lose 6 lbs the month I went without drinking (gained 3 of them back :frown: ) but I try to stick to drinking only on weekends and only having 1-2 the entire weekend.

    I work out so I can drink. ;)
  • I am having to quit drinking :(( Found that until I reach my goal weight, I simply flop 5 lbs. back and forth.
    If you do drink, vanilla or whipped cream vodka and diet orange soda is only 64 calories :))

    Same for me. It doesn't matter what I do or how well I am doing, if alcohol is involved my weight fluctuates waaaay too much!

    same for me..it's the cravings that seem to go along with the wine..hmmmm some brie cheese would be nice...etc. etc...oh well...just have to make calorie allowances.

    Decide how badly you need or want it. It's a lot of empty calories.
    One glass of wine every other day is heart protection maybe. but
    is that why you're doing it? I have learned to love water and that's
    what I usually drink when out with others. I will admit the jokes
    are not as funny always with water. It's all about choices.

    Yes, Crystal light makes it. It's not bad.

    It might bloat you if you have too much, so be careful and hydrate (still takes me 2-3 days to lose the bloat).

    I stick with red wine, but I think light beers, crystal light lemonade with iced tea vodka (or with iced tea and vodka if you don't want to buy the Jeremiah Weed), vodka tonic or club soda with lime, or rum and diet soda are acceptable.

    Oh my, ain't THAT the truth! Olives, or a cheese stick here and a cracker there or a pretzel. Yeah it's hard for me to drink wine and not want to enjoy all that usually goes with it!
