alcoholic beverages

I gave up alcohol in June and I do not miss it one bit! I plan to drink Water and enjoy it! There are SF Torani syrups you can plan to experiment with, and Skinny Free SF mixers. Wine can be diluted with a little Water and ice cubes. So many choices!!!! Happy New Year!

I haven't done any alcohol yet....hoping to try a small glass of wine in a few months. A small amount of most booze is low cal. Don't go crazy. I used to mix booze with crystal light. Yum!

Exactly! Pre-op. I always mixed vodka with a flavored crystal light. Yummy and low cal.

Only 7 weeks out so I will resist. However, diet cranberry (5 calories) and vodka is very low calorie and festive. Happy NewYears!

I'd avoid beer because of the carbs. But I got (accidently) looped on a few glasses on wine on Christmas. My tolerance is WAY LOW!

I had a bout 1/4 of a very small glass of wine at Christmas and was fine. I was told by the Physcologist at my visit that I couldn't drink anymore after one glass that I would be passed out on the floor if I did. I belive if you eat something and wait the thirty min afterwards to drink it you should be ok just don't go crazy amd bing on it.

I haven't missed the alcohol at all! I believe we are clear at my dr office at 3 months in moderation. However, I have pretty much decided I would wait at least 6 months, so this summer I may or may not have libations. On a side note, I went to happy hour at least once a week with my friends, I will probably be going periodically, as I have went to the sports bar this past sunday to watch the Cowboys - ugh, but sticking to unsweetened tea actually has been great, and like i said in the beginning, not missing it at all!

I am 13 Days out and have had a glass of wine a few times already and feel great

I'm a huge wine lover. I'm too scared to have alcohol right now. My doctor said 6wks after I can. I'm 12 days post op.

I have considered it, like New Year's, but since the scale is stuck I am not sabotaging myself for sure! I am on a mission, just 6 weeks out, but wine would be good.

Vodka and crystal light, I like the pomegranate kind. And yes my tolerance is way lower than before so I am a cheap date!!
