YES. i did. it was delicious, it was pinot grigio, it was 1,000 calories! next thing i know, my inhibitions go down, and i'm munching on annie's cheddar bunny crackers till the cows come home. plus 400 cals!
this is not the first time i've done this. i don't think i have a problem with alcohol... do i?
i'm 192 lbs so i get tipsy, not drunk or wasted; i drank over a 2 hr period. (i'm also 30 yrs old, not 16)
does anyone else do this, or anything similar?

Don't feel bad, it happens to everyone.
I drink whole bottles all the time and still constantly lose weight. I am a "wino" and have over 170 bottles currently. I started my diet on April 10th and since then (52 days) I have lost 32.8 lbs. During this time about 12% of my calories consumed (according to the analysis) come from alcohol. I consume about 1900-200 calories a day, so I average 200 calories a day in wine. That is about an 8 oz glass or 1 bottle every 3-4 days. So since I started my diet I have drank almost 15 bottles of wine.
So whoever is tell you not to drink wine or else you can't lose weight it wrong. Now I normally don't drink this much wine, but I have been wine tasting in CA twice since my diet started (I am getting married at a winery so we have to go back frequently to set up and finalize plans).
The last time I asked my friend, a counselor, the same question you asked ... we decided that I difinitely was using the wine to self medicate. She asked me where did I usually drink the wine. I told her the on the back porch; she said that I need to tell myself that I can no longer drink wine on the porch by myself. This has helped tremendously. She said that she used medicate by eating cheez-its on the couch in front of the TV and she stopped that. Hope this helps.
I allow myself one glass of Red while I am cooking dinner. They say that Red has health benefits if you stop at one glass for my size. I've had to change the glass I use also. I use a champaigne glass which is taller and feels like more.
1 ounce of red wine is 21 calories
1 bottle of red wine = 24 oz * 21cals
&nb sp; &nb sp; = 504 calories.
I recently began drinking Mikes Hard Lemonade. Was very pleased to find out that one bottle is 70 calories. WOW! Now I can have one bottle a night guilt free. IF I want two, still no guilt.
All this said as I sip my lovely Clos Du Bois Merlot YUMMY!
wine is the best thing ever invented. For adults who don't drive. Anyhow, don't worry about the wine. Most people around me drink a lot of wine, and have no problems with weight!! Just balance it off the neaxt two days with a lot of water and veggies and you should still see some loss on the scale :-)
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
