I have just reported a 0.5 lb gain this week on Lowcals Monday weigh in, mainly as a result of 3 social nights out and too many alcoholic drinks. How ironic then that I just opened Week 5 of the 12 week plan to find that it is all about the calories in what we drink!! I am finding the plan really informative and can see that it will work for anybody just as long as we are able to stick with it. This is the beginning of week 5 for me, I have lost (4 lb since I started), of course I know that it isn't the case but when I read through week 5 this morning I thought it had been written for me personally. If this isn't enough incentive to be more mindful of exactly how many calories I drink this week then I don't know what is. Good luck everyone on your journeys.
