I have given up drinking, except a literal one sip to taste a glass of my husband's when he has some (once a month or two)... but can definitely say I love wine.

I grew up in wine country, surrounded by vineyards and winery, the smell of the pressed grapes.... I worked tying grape vines for a spring/summer.

While never a big drinker I've always loved trying different wines, learning about them and the production and industry in general. The rare glass with a nice meal was always a treat!

I love pinot grigio or white pinot blends. I usually have a few glasses a week and it's not the reason I struggle with my weight!

I still drink wine in moderation. I will NEVER give up wine!! LOL. I did however give up my chocolate wine because it was just way way way too heavy and probably not worth it. I will have a glass of it a few times a year because it is just too wonderful to never have again. But...I still drink wine about once or twice a week. I want to lose weight, but I still gotta have my wine!!

I REFUSE to give up wine. I've lost 22 pounds total on my weight loss journey and didn't cut out my weekend adult-beverages. You're welcome to add me! My fave is red, but with it being summer I've been drining a lot of whites...I like clean and crisp, not too fruity.

I always work my wine into my calories. I'm not a big carb eater in the first place, so I have no guilt in making sure I have enough calories to have my wine in the evening! I drink moscato, muscadine and sweet reds. I think most people have issues with alcohol and weight loss because of mixers with hard liquor as opposed to having a glass of wine.

I've never much cared for Pinot Grigio, but give me a NY or German Riesling and I'm in heaven.
June 27, 2012 6:25 PM
Oh I LOVE my wine!!! Pinot preferred! LOL! I don't drink very often - I'm really trying to get this weight off me - I've been battling my bulge for too long! ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! I have a glass or two on a Friday or Saturday night when my hubby has a few beers, otherwise during the week, I don't drink....that doesn't mean others shouldn't so don't go taking that as me saying that someone shouldn't drink during the week!!!! LOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! To each their own - whatever makes them happy!!!! :)

Mmm, yes, I love white wine. So refreshing. I usually save it for the weekends, keep it in moderation, and it hasn't been a problem during my weight loss efforts at all. Cheers!

Absolutely -- if I had to go so cold turkey on the things I enjoy, I would backlash so quickly I'd get whiplash. This is a "long game" this weight loss thing - a life long commitment. Now, you wont find me going out on all night prowling benders with my friends like I may have in my 20s :) but a short glass of wine with dinner is perfectly acceptable...and may actually be keeping me sane :)

I was used to having a glass or two of chardonnay every night, but have cut back to just a couple of times a week now. I did notice that it was slowing my weight loss down, and I was retaining fluid as well. I have no intention of ever giving up wine completely though!! - I am NOT on a diet, I am enjoying my new lifestyle with exercise, good healthy food and occasional treats. Life is for living, enjoying, and a glass or two of wine fits right in!!!
June 27, 2012 7:12 PM
everything in moderation.
June 27, 2012 7:14 PM
Love it and make room for it in my plan bc its important to get what ya want sometimes!!
June 27, 2012 7:19 PM
Love riseling! i have it once a week or once every two weeks. I just have it as a treat for the day :)

i find that now that i'm doing chalean when i get home from work i just dont have much appetite for wine. i would have a glass most nights while making dinner. btw... a white beaujolais is one of my favorites.

I still have a glass or 2 or 3 at the weekends , i usually have white wine and soda , (i have done for years now ) I have to be able to maintain at the end of this journey so still having my wine is important to me . so wont be giving up in the forseeable future.smile

Before i realised how many calories in wine i could get through a whole bottle every two days!!
I gave it up completely for about a month, but totally cutting it out it just made me want it more!
I still drink (maybe 2-3 glasses a week), but as long as i remain around my calorie goal, it's fine.

I don't eat my exercise calories so that gives me a bit of wiggle room to have a few glasses of wine at the weekend. I restrict alcohol to Friday and Saturday nights only, and I try to eat more protein and less carbs/fat on those days. Also I usually stick to a white wine spritzer (dry white wine topped up with soda water and a couple of ice cubes) or spirits on the rocks.

too right do I like a glass of wine, I think life is too short to cut out things you enjoy.

I dont drink excessively and have a few alcohol days free each week.

I make sure I allocate all the relevant calories and take it out of my allowance, if I'm running short on calories after meals then I will add in an extra bit of exercise to compensate.

Now wheres that chilled Sauv Blanc ?? drinker

Hurray wine! I try my best to live a healthy lifestyle, and wine sure puts the style in my life...

Seriously though, I train for and run marathons without giving up drinking. My body tells me what it does and doesn't want.

I drank through weight loss, I drink through maintenance. Life's too short! drinker

Also....it didn't make the damnedest bit of difference to my weight loss.

Pass the corkscrew!!!! ; )

I ADORE white wine, especially Chardonnay. I only have one-two glasses very occasionally, maybe once a month or so, which is all I did before starting to lose weight, anyway lol, so I haven't changed my habits at all. I may be a little more careful with my sugars if I know I will be having a glass, but I just don't worry about it too much for myself. Life is WAY too short not to be able to enjoy things that you love sometimes...
June 28, 2012 6:24 AM
I love all wines. drinker

Well, maybe not riesling.
