Wine is my weakness too. I try and have lower alcohol white wine and have it as a very long spritzer with ice. Half a glass of wine per long glass. I still feel like I'm having a drink but drink far less. I find it very refreshing.

105 Syns in the week is 4 bottles of wine (which is too much anyway grin) so cut out the nibbles or take Walkers French Fries with you and just drink the wine.

I drink a glass quite a few evenings a week - and I save my Babybel lights for the cheese to go with it every day

When I whinged on in my first SW meeting to the leader about 'is there any wine on this diet' she said I could drink a bottle every 2 days and still lose weight (which is way more than I drink)

I heart her, she is very matter of fact and blunt

laurie is she for real ??

Yep, a bottle is 24/30 Syns. You get 15 Syns a day so yes you could.

No one does though grin

Oh I feel your pain but my issue is sugar. I've been on it six weeks and lost 1 stone 4 and up to last week thought I was doing brilliantly without sugar except for hifi bars.
And then yesterday happened and I are ALL THE SUGAR. I fell so ashamed of myself and frustrated. Trying to start afresh today but I woke up so angry with myself for being so stupid.

And the moral of the story is that it might be better to allow yourself a measured amount rather than absteining and risking going crazy later.

Oh dear god I feel your pain! I only started following slimming world this week lol.

Well done flopis on giving up sugar & 18lb.
I'm not a chocolate monster and tend to have 1 mallow with a cuppa every evening with my dh. I've had 20 syns since Monday -12 for mallows & 8 other. I can't see that if I drank 3 bottles of wine at the weekend I'd lose weight, regardless of what sw promotes. Maybe it's because I only have about a stone excess to get rid of. I'm no skinny Minny, I only want to be 11 something.
I think I'll need to adopt the long drink that cider talked of. But then i d drink it fastergrin

You can get a lower syn alcoholic wine called Summer Light in Sainsburys. Not sure what the sun values are per glass but it was in this month's SW magazine

the low alcohols one I get is called First Cape I think. I drink it much slower than straight wine for some reason.

Although have been out tonight and had two glasses of Sauvignon blanc and the shared two bottles of red with DH. blush

The low alcohol - light wines aren't to my taste, I find them sweet. It's like there's no wine in them.confused
Will have a nice pinot tonight with a lovely free bolognaise. Will keep hexb then I can indulge in some garlic bread.
