    I’m down 55 lbs so far and drink a fair amount on the weekends. I understand that i could have weighed less by not doing so but at the same time I’ve stuck to it so far (440 days). I love my beer so have been sticking more to the 83-95cal per beer choices.

    Super simple whiskey and Diet Coke. About 90 calories depending on the brand.

    I have some in my freezer now. Some of the flavors are good and some are kind of gross tasting. They don't completely freeze solid either they just get slushy. But they are pretty refreshing when its hot out.

    Wine, gin&tonics and mojitos. I’ve found it helpful to always keep a glass of water in my other hand or, if sitting on a table, the water glass nearer to my dominant hand than the actual drink. The drink lasts longer, there’s less extra calories and since I drink slower I drink less, so less chance of a hangover.

    I've been cutting down on the booze, but it is most certainly part of my life and isn't going to go away.

    In summer I'm a big fan of a good G'n'T, Pims, Vodka and ginger beer (with a squeeze of lime).

    I tend to drink pretty much any spirit (mostly Vodka/Gin/Rum/Whisky/Tequila) alone or with diet mixers - diet ginger beer/diet coke/soda water/slimline tonic.

    Or I will have a couple of craft beers/light ciders and just save the calories for them.

    I tend to avoid sugary cocktails or fruit juice mixers.

    I like caipirinhas, especially now in summer. I've not counted the calories of that, but I suppose it's quite a lot. The cachaca, lime, and especially sugar do add up.

    I'd wondered@freezing completely. Makes sense because of the vodka - incapable of freezing in normal at home freezers, especially the 80 proof. Good thing I'd chosen to not waste my calories on it then ... I might have selected one of the yucky tasting mixes. The green one was gross right?

    I think Double IPAs are part of why my weight gain happened. So now they're just for special occasions and I stick to Coors Light or some Crown Royal on the rocks.

    Aperol and soda is my go-to at the moment, lower calories than the full spritz with prosecco.

    I like craft beer, so I drink it. I just log it and drink less of it.

    I find alternating drinks with water is super helpful, and also having a game plan when I go out (ie: I have x number of calories left today, so that means I can drink x number of beers). Or planning a healthy eating day if I know I want to go out. Or sometimes just knowing that I'm going over and it might slow my progress. Even clear liquors have a fair few calories, so I'd rather drink something I enjoy.

    I've have been drinking less since I started making an effort to lose weight. And I have been drinking a lot more kombucha and soda water these days to fulfil some of the desire for a cold fizzy beverage.

    I find moderating the booze isn't as much the issue as is my desire for greasy food when I've been drinking.
