Only using wine glasses for drinks

I just noticed this evening that I’ve been using my wine glasses for all my drinks lately. My wine glass holds 8oz when poured to the rim. I think it’s a psychological thing where I feel like I’m getting a really full glass. As opposed to one of my regular drinking glasses where 8oz doesn't look like very much. Also, I tend to sip drinks slower and really enjoy them when I’m drinking from a wine glass. Maybe its because that’s how I drink wine? Just now I literally sipped on a wine glass of GoodBelly Mango over the course of an hour as if it was some kind of dessert wine or something.

Anyways I thought it was interesting and was wondering if anyone else found themselves doing something like this.

    I agree to the above. Many tips for healthy eating revolve around eating (and drinking) mindfully - planning and scheduling meals, composing appetizing meals, using pretty dishes/napkins/candles, sitting down to eat, eating together in a relaxed athmosphere, eating slowly, savouring the colors and flavors. It used to sound woo-ey to me, but I understand now that it's not in itself enough to stop you from overeating, but to get satisfaction from enough.

    I suppose I should have put more “hahahas” or “lols” in my original post. I just thought it was pretty funny that I naturally started doing this. Sipping on juice like a fine wine? Idk I think it’s pretty funny. I guess I assumed I would get more silly responses like “oh I use the same plate for weighing food every meal and didn’t realize it until it broke and I drove to target to get a new one... weird” or “at work they always buy the same cake for birthdays so I took a piece home and weighed it just so I would know how many cals to log during office celebrations”

    I'd rather have the wine than juice.
