I hope you can find a way to enjoy a nice glass of wine now and then and still meet your weightloss goals. What a shame it would be to have to choose one or the other.

When you want the wine don't have it, have a glass of water, piece of fruit or diet fizzy. If you still want a glass of wine in half an hour then you will have had time to think about it and how you will stop yourself bingeing so it should be fine. This works well for me (most of the time).
Also if you do find yourself reaching for another glass then make yourself have another glass of water first. It will most likely mean that over the course of an evening you consume fewer calories than you would have- and you won't get a hangover!

I like half a bottle when I have wine, so I save for it. But I only have the half bottle once or twice a week

I have to be very careful when I have a drink so I won't make unhealthy choices. One glass is my limit.

I had dinner a couple of hours before the wine. I think part of it might be psychological. I feel like I've cheated by having the wine and so I might as well have a treat. Then before I know it, I want to eat everything that will be off limits when I resume my diet the next day!

If I drink on an empty stomach I feel it more, did you drink before you ate?

I have a glass of wine when I want one. Don't deny yourself just work it into your program and everything in moderation.

I have a glass (4 oz) of wine and 1 oz. of 70% dark chocolate every night. Both are good for the heart and good for the soul. I don't binge because I know I'll get more tomorrow.

I'll have part of my husband's beer, but not a full drink

I have been doing really well the past 2 weeks sticking to my plan. However, last night, after a particularly stressful day, I had a glass of wine. This led to a full on binge! Just 1 glass of wine! Normally, for this reason, I only allow myself alcohol on Saturday with dinner, my cheat meal. I know alcohol causes you to lose your inhibitions and stimulates hunger, but I'm surprised 1 glass of wine caused me to consume 2000 calories! Maybe the effects of alcohol are amplified when you're dieting? Has anyone else experienced this? I guess I'm going to have to abstain from even 1 drink during the week.
