Hopefully I'll have a stomach like that in no time.
Yes, I, too got into the nightly drink or three habit. Usually beer but often vodka.
It's a pretty bad habit on a number of levels, weight loss included. Not only do you have the calories you also have the alcohol keeping the liver busy processing it instead of metabolising fat so a double whammy.
I know it's a tough habit to break, but I went to having alcohol once a week and now once a month, at most. You might give that a try--once the habit is "broken", the urge gets smaller and smaller (though has yet to go away entirely).
