Alcohol = dieting enemy number one!

Afternoon everyone :)

So I went on my big night out last night and had a good time. I drank vodka and diet coke to start, then as I got more tipsy began to care less and had a shot of something (?), a couple of Smirnoff Ices and a couple of San Miguel beers! Cue serious headache this morning. And today I've basically failed completely :eek: I've come to report what I've eaten to try to keep track of calories:

chicken and stuffing sandwich - 380
Twirl - 230
2 (!) rounds corned beef sandwiches - 600
Shapers choc bar - 100
low fat supernoodles - 334
Mullerlight - 100
TOTAL SO FAR: 1744 (yikes!)

Still got dinner to go! :eek: might have to accept I'm going waaaay over today. This is what alcohol does to me! I don't go out every weekend though. I'm completely eating for the sake of it today. I'm gonna have to be 100% all week. I weighed on Saturday instead of Sunday this week and had lost 2lb, reaching my second target, so hopefully next Sunday I'll be under 11st! When I see that 10 digit on the scales I'll probably faint! It's been far too long.

I went out in a short black shift dress last night bare legged, something I normally would never consider doing, and I felt really good and got lots of compliments! I'm so happy this is finally happening for me (even if I am on hungover sabotage mode today!) roll on tomorrow, new week, no headache, fresh start! :D

First of all, well done on the dress, sounds lovely :) bet you felt amazing!! Know what you mean about the alcohol, not only is it calorific itself, it causes you to over-eat the next day :( but I like how honest you are & the fact that your already thinking about tomorrow & how your getting back on the wagon & writing today off :) thats THE most important thing!! :D keep going x
I think I have crocodile skin on my legs, they never tan and I don't feel the cold on them either haha. Thanks girls! :) add cornflakes to the list now as well, might skip dinner after all this food!
I agree, alcohol is evil!!! I always end up having crap food when I'm pi**ed then I need crap food when I'm hanging!!! EVIL!!! x
Alcohol is actually the devil isn't it Lindsey! I didn't eat anything on the way back to my friend's last night/this morning so that's something I guess, but boy have I made up for that today! Lol.

xsarahx - you're definitely right about needing to have fun, I was posting earlier this week about being a bit of a perfectionist re dieting and feeling really guilty if I had some chocolate or some vodka etc, and I've been avoiding socials too for fear of ruining my diet, but I kinda realised that I can't live my life like that, I need to have some fun and I can't hide away until I reach goal. So I'm glad I went out last night and had a good time, and although my food today hasn't been great, I feel much better in myself for relaxing my strict rules for a short time.
