Oh, I know, what I mean is, I'm always sooo careful about watching what I eat so when I get a nice glass of wine I don't worry about it and enjoy. Kind of think about it, the same with food, in the way that I enjoy and not obsess. Portion control and working out are key for me.

Nothing you can say will make me, and apparently several others, think otherwise

If they actually counted, my caloric intake would be off the charts on the weekend. So....as a result of that statement, booze does not count.

HAHAA! I think I would cry big tears if I knew how many calories are in one Mojito. I will continue living in denial...

I have been on a weight reduction/lifestyle change program for a year and I keep it at about 1500 calories per day. I have enough to eat, feel and look great and have lost 50 lbs. as of yesterday.

I have to agree with the above posts. For some strange reason I never count what I drink as part of my caloric intake. Could be why diets aren't as effective for me as they seem to be for others. Hmmmmm oh well!
