I make my own at home. This morning had a "Venti Salted Carmel Mocha decaf"....Italian roast Decaf coffee, premium Protein chocolate "creamer", and two squirts Torani SF caramel Syrup. 20oz, 25 calories, 4g protein, <1g carbs and about 50 cents. Compare to Starbuck's Venti Salted Cafe Mocha (with skim milk and no whipped cream)...400 calories, 17g protein, 77 carbs!!! and almost $5.00. Sorry to be a smartass, but I always thought Starbucks was a ripoff.

Chai tea! Because I have become a tea fanatic since surgery! Decaf of course! I haven't ordered any yet from Starbucks I will have to ask if it's decaf?

No, not Decaf. I drink a small amount of caffeine every day. One habit I wasn't willing to give up :P

On most days I just get a plain old Earl Grey Tea or Grande Decaf Medium Roast. But for a rare treat, a Decaf Skinny Soy Caramel Latte...yum! The soy cuts down on the carbs a bit, and this is a delicious treat once in awhile. Ooh, and over the holiday season they have Skinny Peppermint Mochas--another yum!

I used to LOVE chai lattes but I'm off sugar now completely (can't handle it, triggers me to overeat). Still haven't kicked the artificial sweetener habit though...but it's on my to-do list! Sometimes even a sugar-free latte can be a trigger for me, so I need to watch myself. :)

Tall Decaf americano with room for skim milk. Typically make my own now too though. Especially my own skinny decaf latte's. Milk frothed are the best!

My weekly Starbucks treat is a Venti Decaf house coffe with SF Hazelnut Syrup and half & half. Approx 80 calories for a big ol' 20 oz serving.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
