Praise be!! I really thought I was alone with the "wine dilemma and lo and behold you were all right here! I am new to CK and having the problem of "cutting the wine out". I have both obstacles of being a foodie & wino ... So how does one get a handle on it, without losing out completely? I NEED to loose weight but do I have to sacrifice everything? I am going to read some of the past post, maybe the answer lies within. Just what I've read thus far I now feel a tad better knowing I'm not alone in my blight ... I too love a good martini ... extra dirty!!
