Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Life style changes certainly benefit - it has to go on life long...
It has to be verified by repeating the tests...

In weight reduction - if exercise is reduced, it has to be compensated by reducing the food more.
Weight is like bank account. The account grows when you withdraw less (Cut down unnecessary physical work) and you deposit more (eat more). If the weight is picking up, it only means – the exercise is not enough or the food is more. See a good dietician - you have to reduce the quantity of your food and change the quality too.

Alcohol is bad / there are several ill effects - increasing triglyceride; empty calories (6/gram); long term effects on heart, brain, liver etc...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
