Smaller Size=Smaller Bottles

Ladies and gentlemen, let me fill you in on a very important piece of advice that you may need to carry along with you on the weight loss journey…

As you lose weight your tolerance for alcohol will decrease…who would thunk?? :/

For example…the 252 lb Suzi could drink an entire 1.75 liter bottle (yes folks, thats the BIG bottle) of wine in one day and just feel slightly shitty the next day.  You know that semi-hungover stage where its not like you are going to run a marathon or anything but a little Tylenol and H2O are all you need to get by.

HOWEVER…the 159 lb Suzi CANNOT handle that amount of wine anymore!!
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out.  But it does take an entire night of puking 2, 3, 5 times along with a day of work missed to realize that my body just cannot stand this much alcohol anymore (should it ever really??). 

I tried to put on my big girl panties and make it through the day, but I just couldn’t.  I left for home around 10:00.  I was physically shaking so bad that I couldn’t even type. I’m almost positive that I gave myself alcohol poisoning on some level.  

So kids, what did we learn…Yes that’s right, stick to beer.  Beer never makes me sick like this, and I know that even at my new size, I can down a 18 pack and be a super trooper the next day. Smile

Tomorrow I will handle the task of cleaning up the trail of red vomit marks that go from my bed to the bathroom (you’re welcome for that).  I tried to hold it in my hand as best as I could.  It kind of looks like a murder scene since they are just small spatters…neato! 

Non-alcohol related:
Thank you *SO* much to everyone for all the wonderful comments on my last blog post about me reaching my goal weight.  You have no idea how amazing they made me feel and the gigantic smile they put on my face.  I’d be lying if I said that I don’t go and re-read them daily, hee hee.  You guys are the best!! XOXO


  1. lol ohhh Suzi!! Sorry that you were barfy :( Hope you are feeling better now girl! :) xoxo

  2. LOL that sucks but I have been noticing the same thing!! Except I can't drink alcohol AT ALL anymore, and I only lost 25 lbs so I can't imagine how crazy it'd be if I'd lost as much as you! Hope you're feeling better! I was recovering from a hangover all day yesterday!

  3. OH, you poor babe! That sucks! Hard lesson well learned.

  4. Haha oh Lord - that totally sucks. This is why i stick to beer only. :)

  5. I know it's not nice to laugh - but that was just funny stuff Suzi :)
    Glad you're feeling better bb!

  6. Just found you through Skinny Runner... your pics are inspiring like woah - congrats to you! Keep up the great work and watch out for that vino :\

  7. So true... just so you don't feel alone, I had a run-in with 4 glasses of Chardonnay at a work-related happy hour about a year ago and needed a sober cab (aka my husband who had to haul a 2 yr old out of bed for this). YIKES!

  8. I know it's a weird comment, but it just jumped out at me. Taking tylenol before, during, or after drinking destroys your liver because of toxic byproducts. It magnifies and makes permanent any damage that could have happened. The scientist in me was like "oh no!"

    On a less serious note, wow, I love your blog! So inspiring!
