Beer Makes Us Chubby


I’ll be honest. I drink 5 or more alcoholic beverages 3 to 4 nights a week. One might think I have a drinking problem, but I’d like to think it’s normal college behavior. Wouldn’t you? I mean, it’s my senior year. I don’t have class on Friday. I’m living it up. I should party every chance I get because, sadly my college career is coming to an end.

Okay so back to the point. My favorite jeans — the ones I love love love — have become quite snug. To the point where I just don’t think I should even try to wear them anymore. I don’t want to be one of those girls who can barely walk her jeans are so tight, nor do I want to sport a “muffin top.” So I’ve put them to rest … for the time being.

But what boggles my mind is that I haven’t been eating badly on a consistent basis. Come to think of it, I eat really well and I exercise like 5 days a week. So in an attempt to explain my weight gain, I started couting calories. Even beer, wine and mixed drink calories. Ya know what I learned? I’ve been sucking down between 2,000 and 3,000 liquid calories a week! Um, that’s disgusting.

I’m sorry to be the bearer of such terrible news. But it’s the truth. The thing is, I’m enjoying my social life and I think I’ll wait til I’m done with college to make any serious lifestyle changes. So I’m gonna keep on drinkin.’
