starbucks question



Recommended Posts

I agree Pik. :P

Well, I made a bariatric safe pumpkin spice coffee drink yesterday. Discusting! I poured it out.

Today I bought 1/2 caf coffee. I'll try it plain tomorrow. It's what I drank pre-surgery. If it tastes gross too then I will try regular caff coffee. If that tastes gross too then I will be very sad :( because that will only mean that my taste buds have changed post surgery. And that would just.plain.suck!. My husband would be happy because he can't stand the smell of coffee.

But I have determined that I hate the taste of all of these fake sugars. So gross tasting. I think that's the real problem with any Starbucks/non-starbuck's coffee's. :( blah

I tried to drink a Decaf (which I usually like just fine) yesterday and it was so bad. I couldn't even drink it. I have to wonder if I just don't drink coffee anymore! That would suck because I have a million K cups!

Tall (or grande) nonfat cappucino (decaf or regular).

Tall has 60 cal and Protein from the milk. You can add fake sugar if you like.

I do sometimes but since I've been off of caffeine for 9 weeks and want to get off bp med I figure it's better not to start it back up. ;) but I am drinking a plain half caff coffee now and it tastes fine. Yay!

I am so jealous. I bet if I used regulat half and half it wouldn't be so gross.

I added hot Water so it's more like 3/4 Decaf, 1/4 caf ;)

I occasionally get an iced coffee skinny caramel with half and half. I don't have any caffeine restrictions on my plan. Honestly It's way more effective than any laxative out there. LOL.

Apple Chai is my favorite. It's a chai tea latte but instead of milk they use apple juice

Oh my goodness YUM! I gotta try that! Or better yet let my 16 year old with the super fast metabolism order it and have a few sips LOL! Probably not a whole lot of Apple juice though, right?

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
