I am glad to find this group as well. I live close to the Napa Valley and do alot of bike rides(road bike) in that area. Its really beautiful this time of year. I have been collecting wine for about 10 years. I like both whites(french style) and most reds. Trying to do a little extra miles for that glass as well.

I'm pleased to find this group. I love my wine, but am trying to cut down to one glass a day. A 6 oz glass is sure small. I really do like that second glass, and I'm now trying to trick myself by pouring 2 small glasses for a total of 8 oz. Someone that feels OK. I stay in my calorie count by burning off the wine calories. I admit, it's an incentive to exercise to know that I can reward myself with a good chardonnay, buttery with a bit of oak.

I'm a teacher and on summer break right now, so it's hard for me to keep it only to the weekends. Every day seems like a weekend day to me! But yes, I think only having at MOST one glass a day during the week and then maybe two or three glasses on a weekend evening sounds reasonable to me. As someone already mentioned earlier on this forum, going over a LITTLE one day a week isn't going to ruin us, (IMO). Also, whenever I know I'll probably have more than one glass a night, I try to add a little more to my workout that day—either in time or in intensity—to make up for the extra calories.

Are you holding my cat? Your beautiful kitty looks like mine. My cat's name is Ginger Elvis. He and I enjoy a glass of wine or two in the evening and I know the diet would go better without it. (he only keeps me company) So I am trying to figure out the calorie count and exercise so I can do it. I am new to the program so I have figured out nothing yet but open to suggestions and encouragement.

Sometimes to stop the cravings wine brings on, I just have another glass of wine.....but that is AWFUL advice, but somehow works! Then that extra glass sometimes leads to a good work out w/ my honey!"

thanks for creating this group, Donna!

Ohhh I'm majorly into wine. Even have a wine cellar :tongue10: One way to avoid the cals and still 'enjoy' wine is to go to wine tastings and.....(here it comes) spit. At least you still get to taste a huge variety of wines, pick the ones you liked best, bring them home and save them for a 'free' day.

I have free days. I think one free day during the week is perfectly fine, after all, if you are dieting 5-6 days out of 7, you are still going to lose weight. I just can't drink everyday if I want to lose weight, so it's got to go. I'm going to endeavor to keep my wine drinking to the weekends.

:hi: Kathy,
Usually I just make sure to leave extra room in my calorie count. Ex. I'm allowed 1390, so I try to be at 1100 after dinner (I log my food before I eat it!), so I can have a glass of wine and maybe some cheese :) I also make sure to get a workout in if it's a wine and cheese night, that way I can sort of counter balance any over-snacking I might have done =D

Hope it helps!

I was hoping someone would create a wine group! At the same time, I feel a bit hesitant about it since drinking wine usually causes me to eat more.

How do others deal with that aspect of wine?

Thanks - Kathy

Oopps... like I said - I am pretty new to forums. I did another post instead of replying. And that without a single sip of wine yet....
