I know a glass of wine is 2 points and I can probably afford it, but do you have any recommendations for what I should do as I have three wine-tasting events this week. My options appear to be a) not go at all so as to avoid temptations, b) go but drink sparingly--1 glass at most, or c) work out extra hard, save points, and enjoy the event as I'd do normally...Can I still lose weight if I drink??

Hey Amee,
I know that during my weight loss I had gone out drinking a few times and still managed to loose that week. It was not like I was drinking every day or anything, but it is a life style change that we are all doing. And in real life we will go out and drink, it is a part of life. Maybe I am an exception, but with my experience I was able to have a few drinks one evening a week since the start.
I hope that this helps you with your program as well.

I did the light beer thing on the weekend and it didn't have any effect on my loss. I agree that if you aren't doing it often it's okay. Plus...I always tend to be much more active if i'm having a few drinks....beats laying on the couch.

I thought that at wine tasting events you spit the wine out. Now I know I love wine and would not want to waste a drop, but I'm sure it is exceptable. Espesially if it is a big event, no one will even notice and if they do, they will probably be drunk any ways. You should definitly go! Maybe you could go with a friend and have them taste a few wines and tell you if they are good. I know that everyone has different tastes, but at least this will save you from gaining calories from the gross wines! Have fun!
