    Hi :)

    Just a quick question!

    As it was a lovely day today, I went to a friend's early on, and stayed for the day - ended up having three double vodkas (I am doing the old weight watchers plan 123 sucess, and a 25ml vodka is worth 1 point) so I had 6 points worth of vodka :S Anyway, I stuck within my points limit for the day, but I just wondered that since I had so much alcohol, is that worse for losing weight? :S

    Points are points... if you have strictly and correctly counted them including the vodkas and not gone over, you should lose weight. It's just not healthy.

    Wouldn't recommend the vodka diet for long term use ;)

    I think sometimes alcohol can throw out your fluid balance. I had a bit too my much on Saturday and I still feel dehydrated. But I have drunk gallons of water and feel bloated so if I were to weigh now I would probably show as up. Never again (famous last words). Also I stuffed my face when I got in so that doesn't help either. I am still just in points but think I will have to do plenty of exercise to pull it back.
