starbucks question



Recommended Posts

I'm meeting someone there tomorrow and I don't know if there's anything I can drink. 5 wks out, allowed solids now. Obviously I don't want sugar drinks but don't know what other options I might have. Any suggestions for this one visit besides Water? Decaf green tea? I don't know what that tastes like. I.miss coffee though....... maybe just a reg decaf coffee?

A lime refresher - has caffeine though, but really yummy. unsweetened awake tea misto, any of the steeped herbal teas.

Check with your doctor. My doctor said no caffeine for minimum 3 months. But why not just get some bottled Water? You have to drink it anyway and no point sliding into bad habits once again (my all time fav was the chai tea latte...now a dream for a LONG time, if ever). But the newer skinnier me that will be coming is worth the sacrifice!

Lime refresher is super yummy but has caffeine - awake tea misto is caffeinated or any of the herbal iced teas. You can order anything sugar free or non sweetened. Good luck

Skinny cinnamon dolce steamer- no fat, no sugar, and all good- best drink ever.

That's why I'm getting Decaf. I don't want caffeine. And I don't want Water. That's all I've been drinking and I want something different this one time.

Erp, is the skinny cinnamon dolce steamer decaf or can I ask for it to be decaf?

Venti Iced Passion Tea for me! Takes a long time to drink, no caffeine and counts towards my Water - AND is super flavorful. Tell them no Syrup (sweetener) or to add a packet of your choice. I bring my own stevia usually, or ask for Equal if i forget.

A " steamer " is just hot steamed milk with your choice of flavoring, , like mint, cinnamon, etc. Really good ! You can choose what kind of milk ( 2%, skim etc) and you get your Calcium in there too. I love them when I want someting with no caffeine, but still hot and yummy.

Many people are sensitive to artificial sweeteners so look out for the "skinny" syrups if you're in that category -- don't want to get set off. I like a Decaf Cappuccino -- the foamed milk is festive and yummy and I feel like I'm getting a real treat. I can really linger over it, too. Pink Dahlia, I'm going to try the steamer -- fun!

I don't blame you for going to Starbucks and not wanting to get Water. You can get water anytime and I'm sure water there will cost as much as a passion tea anyway.

Order Decaf coffee hot or over ice. Add a sugar free flavor like: sf mocha, sf hazelnut, or sf cinnamon dolce. Add a packet of stevia, equal, or sweet n low if you are allowed to add the sweetener.

Thanks everyone! :-)

They have the fake sugar there, right? Or should I bring my own?

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
