view on alcohol, yogurt

I have a tendency to have yogurt before I go to bed, which I'm trying to break. Also what do you think of alcohol? I like to have 1-2 drinks on the weekend.
I just reread the No S book and Reinhardt seems like he is in favor of a few drinks... just on S days?

I weighed myself today and I lost 2 lbs. I'm glad about it, but I'd be happier if I'd lost 5 lbs. Oh well.
I've done no snacking, maybe my S days need a little modification. I take thyroid med too, but not everyday.
