losing weight while drinking

I usually have about 4 drinks about 6 days a week, just because I'm on my summer vacation from college and want to have fun. I'm looking to lose about 10-12 pounds within the next 5 weeks. Is this possible with the drinking that I am doing? Also, I've heard that it's unhealthy to go below 1200 calories a day because it slows the metabolism. Well, if I have 1000 calories of actual food, can I consume the other 200 through alcohol?

Re: losing weight while drinking

You need to ask yourself the tough question of why drinking this much alcohol daily is so important to you that you'd rather drink than eat. I know this sounds very judgemental, but I've been where you are. The pattern you're falling into is problem drinking, not just fun.

Re: losing weight while drinking

Thanks for your reply nancy. I think part of the problem is that I'm surrounding myself with the wrong people. Now, obviously I'm not going to get rid of my friends because of it. I do enjoy drinking, but I have been notcing that I've been drinking more than usual lately. It just seems that whenever I go out everyone is drinking. Would you be able to give me any suggestions on how to get out of that enviornment and still have fun?

Well you can still be with the friends in the same fun situations just don't order an alcoholic drink. It's like your parents told you, "If all your friends jumped off a bridge, would you do it too?" <IMG SRC="">

If you CAN'T quit drinking seek out an AA group. They have a wonderful success rate and will know all the ways and tricks to help you stay away from it. Good luck.
