Welcome to SR, we're all about dropping the beer and alcohol around here!
Years ago when I joined this forum there was a "No Obvious Sweets" forum (eat nothing with sugar or corn syrup in the first three ingredients). I took on that challenge and combined it with the Weight Watchers point system. Dropped 45lbs and felt great although my wife said I looked a little too thin.
That was about 13 years ago. I've since put the weight back on because of...yeah....sweets. Not really happy about the way I look but I am doing my best to stay on track and make healthy food choices.
