I’m down 16 lbs since November 1. I use MyFitnessPal (free) and log everything.

I started at 237. Doc told me if I didn’t lose the belly and stop drinking, I had to start Metformin. No thanks. My dad was diabetic, I’ve lost one brother to a cardiac problem related to diabetes, and have a brother in a wheelchair because of it.

I don’t want any of that. At 221 I already feel better. Ultimate goal is 200.

For beer, I found http://www.wellbeingbrewing.com. It is great for being NA.

What I really WANT to do is to start sleeping better....and I'm sure this will help a bit.

Exercise more.  No watching TV in bed.  No caffeine late in the day and the one thing you're currently doing which is cutting back on alcohol.

Im on the wagon also.....diet is simple if you think about it. Just watch portion sizes  eat a well balanced diet and lastly BURN more calories than you are consuming.

I had permanent success after I lost about 30-35 pounds.  Different approaches work for different people.

 

What works for me is running and other exercise.  Sure, I watch what I eat to some extent, but I am a junk food, snack, candy and ice cream-loving fiend.  I probably have sweets almost daily. 

 

I have a regular routine of vigorous exercise, interspersed with alternating days of more moderate exercise.  It's hard to make yourself feel good trying to run fast on a heavy stomach.  Knowing I am going to be running later actually prevents me from stuffing my gut like I used to.

 

This approach might work for some of you who are trying.

 

Edit:  I also rely heavily on my bathroom scale.  I watch trends.  I will allow myself to trend no more than 10 pounds above my preferred weight.  This way, if I feel compelled to stuff the gut a few times, I go for it.  Then, I get back on the wagon and shed these few extra pounds in no time.

I have the opposite problem...I do not gain weight... not unless I let my hair grow and/or bulk up with extra clothing. Never been over 140 @6'2". I'm around 125lb.

 

I can relate to having to run around in to shower to get wet. And those water saving shower heads.....ARGH!!!
