    So, this is why I won't be drinking for quite some time. Been doing this now for nearly 5 weeks and have been flying through it with relative ease. Not always seeing great results but collectively an impressive loss so far I think! Until Saturday - I went to a friends party, got me some gin having read on here that it has no carbs, and sprite zero. I was good all night, avoided the naughty nibbles and ate cheese and pickled onion sticks, and a handful of cocktail sausages only. I thought I was doing great! But when I awoke I felt like Hell had taken up residence in my stomach! Three chocolate bars and a taco chip later - usual hangover fare - I feel sick, bloated and thoroughly uncomfortable and I now know that I don't have it in me to have a drink and then carry on with the plan. I think I equate drinking with breaking the diet and so found my focus utterly diminished. A step on the scales has also found me with a pound on! Now I stayed the same last week and haven't weighed myself since to know whether or not I was en route to another sts even without my slip up, or if my blow out has done LOADS of damage!

    So!! Fresh start today, clean and green and water all the way and I had better get good results this week or some ass-whooping will be in order.

    So come on people -it's Monday - let's see some results this week!!

    I'm pretty sure Sprite Zero has citric acid, which I've been stalling on recently. I'd guess that the pound on will quickly come off, so don't worry :)

    With the attitute of getting straight back on it I'm sure you'll limit any damage done. Great attitude! Onwards and downwards x

    Well done Rose, I agree with Leanne, chalk it down to experience and listen to your body - if it doesn't like something it is quick to tell you! :)

    I have no idea. I've read here that vodka and gin are carb free but as I say, that doesn't mean they don't cost the diet! I'm sure someone will know here though. :)
