How much weight can I lose quitting drinking?

I need some motivation. I feel puffy.

20 pounds easy.

None. People tend to substitute one vice for another.

I didn't lose much weight, but I did lose bloating in my face. Obviously, sobriety is much more conducive to a healthy, active lifestyle.

You lose a TON super quickly. Plus you'll lose that awful bloated face that ages people like 20 years.

It depends on your drinking habits. If you are a daily drinker that ends up munching drunk, you'll definitely drop some pounds. You will probably crave sweets, but that will be a manageable.

I lost about 20 pounds, but part of that was that drinking went hand-in-hand with snacking for me.

R2 is right -- it helps tremendously if you commit to developing healthier habits in general as a part of your resolve to quit drinking.

I lost close to 15 pounds in 8 months, eating more than when I was drinking. Looked and felt better in every single other way, too, and it wasn't my imagination -- people whom I'd not seen for awhile and who didn't know the reason for the change in me would say I looked terrific. Try it, I think you'll like it!

I didn't notice any weight gain or loss, OP.

Now, when I quit smoking years after I quit drinking, I blew up like a balloon!

by Bloaty Magee of South Sidereply 902/24/2013

I lost 20 pounds fairly quickly, and everyone noticed!

by Bloaty Magee of South Sidereply 1002/24/2013

I don't understand, everyone says smoking keeps you thin, but there are so many fat smokers out there.

by Bloaty Magee of South Sidereply 1102/24/2013

A kilo or two.
