Weight a minute...

So, I went out with one of my friends last night to Ceviche, a great tapas and sangria restaurant here in Tampa, and we enjoyed ourselves. I tried several tapas plates and enjoyed them quite a lot. I stayed true to my weight loss goals and ate a fava bean salad, salmon, and marinated mushroom; they were delicious. I also enjoyed two delicious glasses of sangria. I love their sangria (all sangria in general really). It's not too fruity and not too alcoholic; overall, it's the ideal sangria. There was just one problem.

Sangria isn't too bad on weight watchers. 12 ounces only has 4.5 points, because it's mostly wine based and doesn't have a lot of other juices and added sugars. But, herein lies the problem. I got on the scale this morning and weighed 2 pounds more than I did yesterday. I always weigh more the morning after I have ANYTHING to drink. I don't get it and it infuriates me. Why, if I am following the plan, does this alway happen! It takes me another few days to get rid of those other two pounds, and I'm set back a few days on my path to my goal.

The Problem

I don't get it. It isn't like I drink all the time; I probably have what would equate to 1-2 glasses of anything per week. That's really not a lot. Do I have to cut out alcohol altogether to lose weight? That doesn't make sense to me. I save my points to enjoy a nice glass of sangria or chardonnay and I get on the scale the next morning and jump back a few days in weight. What can I do to still be able to enjoy a glass of wine and also be able to enjoy the success of working hard to drop the pounds?

Anybody else been in this situation? Do I really have to just stop drinking? Are there tips about what to eat when I drink to make it better? Will drinking water stop the gain? How much of it is water retention and how long does it take to stop retaining water?

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt,
you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which
not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I found
this in my hunt for something regarding this.
