Weight Gain from Alcohol... Has this happened to you too?
I am pretty new to the forum (posting wise) I am always on here looking for inspiration!!!
However.... I felt the need to post as I am a bit stumped (and apologies for posting in this forum, wasn't really sure where to post...)
Basically my question to you all is.... Have you ever had a massive gain after going on a night out?
I always weigh on a Thursday and last week lost a decent amount but I went out at the weekend. I stuck to the plan 100% and even though I was massively hungover and craving a mc Donald's I stayed on plan and had a jacket potato instead. However I made the big mistake of weighing myself.... It's shown a 6.5lb gain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have weighed myself again tonight and I have stilled stayed the same!!!!!!
Can one evening of alcohol really make you put on nearly half a stone?!!!!!
I know I consumed around 80 syns or so, but still...?! 6.5lbs is a hell of a lot, no?!
I'd appreciate any advice or experiences other have had!
Yes for me alcohol is horrendous. I guess it depends what you drink, but if I am having time off-plan cider is my tipple and I can easily gain 5 or 6 lb over a weekend. Fortunately it tends to be mainly water weight due to the carb load and in a few days it come back off, but it can take up to a week unfortunately .
This has happened to me too. I had a 4lb gain due to a night out, and i didnt even eat anything from the takeaway when everyone els did! It took a long painful week for it to go, but its so disheartening!
Keep your chin up and try not to dwell on it to much! X
I drank 2 bottles of wine last night so I'm not going to weigh myself now lol

Keep away from those scales paigesmum!!
When I have been 100% but have used syns on wine my loss has been worse than the same amount of syns on other things. It's very unfortunate!
Wine can be so evil to a dieter!
What were you drinking? 6.5lbs is a bit much for one night out and just booze. I can have a mad one and about 70 syns of vodka and diet coke, but I've never seen a gain that big from it.
Like someone else said, stay away from scales OTHER than you group's ones. If you dont go to group, only weigh once a week at the same time each week.
Scales differ so much from each other
1st5.5lbs away from target!
