Hi,
My name is Margit - I live in Florida and I am trying again to loose weight through CK. I love wine and I am starting to either blame the weight gain on the wine or have to make a decision about joining AA. I would love to meet in a group that has the same "downfalls" or "enlightening moments". Let's have a wine tasting party with low calorie foods :)

Hey Margit!! Welcome. I love wine too, and I know it has added up!! It was amazing to me how many calories were in just a six ounce serving. My husband and I are really into wine tasting, visiting wineries, etc. We know all of these places serve great low cal foods. Nothing like a little cheese platter and cab!! I also make wine as a hobby. I'm about ready to get started again since Fall is here.

Wow - you make your own wine? That would be a killer for me.... Have you ever looking into organic wines? Are you making white or red??? How difficult is it???

I've made a little of everything; Chianti, Chablis, Rosso Fortissimo, Black rasberry merlot, peach apricot merlot. I think my next wine that I am going to start in the fall is an amarone.

By organic, do you mean with organic grapes? Or do you mean sulfite free?

Wow! Making your own wine! That would save me a few hundred bucks a month :laugh5:
How do you do it? Did you have to go to a class or did you teach yourself?

It is possible to lose weight and drink wine every day :) I always make room in my daily calories for wine!

I find that I can't lose weight if I drink wine 2-3 x a week, even if I keep in my calorie range. So, I have cut back to 1-2 glasses, 1-2 x wk (and I measure my glasses).

donna, i'm in the same boat as you. i used to have one or two glasses every night, over dinner with my fiancee. just cutting back to twice a week (wednesday after weigh-in and saturday are usually my "wine" nights, and even then i only get 2 glasses, or one large one). made a huge difference for me! i initially lost ten pounds on this plan- back in june - then got back in the habit and put the weight back on! so i'm starting again from square 1- with wine only saturdays this time until i get back to where i was.

funny enough, it used to be that when i dieted, i wouldn't count the calories in wine. i thought if i behaved with everything else, it wouldn't matter if i had a couple of glasses a night . wroooong!

well, it's all about learning, isn't it? knowledge is power. i count wine now!
why does everything good have to have calories? i'd much rather go without chocolate than pinot noir!!!

I'm not sure this will work but here I go. Hello fellow wine lovers! I am definitely one of you. I had one glass last night. It was so good I ended up finishing the bottle, plus food, of course. I don't like to drink wine without food. I had a great time with myself. However, I doubled my daily calorie allowance. Today, so far, It's 5:00 pm. I've already reached my limit. I do so much want to stay on track. I'm going to Mexico in January and would love to see my belly diminished.
so, I raise my invisible glass to all of you. Thank you for being there. I will try to stay on track with your support and mutual love of wine. Gauchagirl.
