I had suspected that my love of shots of hard liquor was impeding my weight loss even if I built it into my daily calories, and this proves it. Previously, I'd eaten the same amounts and exercised at the same level and would either not lose at all, or maybe .5lbs. Not only that, my tummy was becoming increasingly fatty fatty fat and it's gone down a tad.
I loveeee the taste of brandy and how it slides down my throat and warms my insides, but if the side effect is an unattractive figure (sad to say I can even deal with the occasional hangover), then I will restrict to really special occasions and will not count happy hours as a special occassion as the devil on my shoulder is prompting me to do
GOOD FOR YOU!!!! You will start to lose a lot of weight just by cutting out booze. I know when I stopped drinking and took it down to one night a month, I instantly lost like 9 pounds. And I didn't even drink all that much. You just do not really understand what certain things can do to your body. Keep it up! And please feel free to friend me!
