Saw the description for this list and thought HOW PERFECT LOL My Dh and I recently moved back to CA and to Northern CA so there is loads of tasting rooms, wineries and the such and of course we have loads of wine at home too ( full bottles in our collection LOL but yeah we drink too...in moderation) and we love gourmet food with our wine and you have to have something chocolate with the reds or the ports....so yeah since moving back and each weekend going out and then DH now being home for dinner each night ( first time in our entire marriage!) we have a glass or two ...with CK putting me on 1200 calories I have no idea how to enjoy it all and still loose weight! So hoping this group might help!:thumbu2:

Hi Newbie, I'm a newbie too. It is a sacrifice to cut down on the wine, but I really want to loose the weight. I'm also on 1,200 calories per day. My goal with the wine, is to just try to have one glass per day for now. I'm in a hurry to loose because I'm going on a beach vacation in January. Maybe you can try sticking to one glass per day for 4 days out of the week. That is the majority of the week, unless you can stick to 1,200 calories with two glasses. good luck!!

I am new to this website and I'm very worried about how I'll fit wines into my daily calorie intake. I enjoy wines and wine drinks like sangria or spritzers. I have started using diet soda in my spritzers to cut back on some of the calories but I'm sure it isn't enough. I would really like it if you all could help me to find a happy medium. I have been taking wine tasting classes for the last 4 months and I really like them. So I don't want to give them up completely. :wave1:

:clap: I am so happy to hear of this little group...I also love wine and have tried so hard to cut back and I have such a hard time even thinking of it. I generally will have 2 or maybe 3 glasses every night. My favorite is E Gallo white Zin "Cafe"-- my real problem begins though after I drink them then I eat!!! Does anyone have a trick how to keep from binging?? I usually have better control, but last night I had no control and I have been feeling really yuky today about it.
