Coffee Cream Update

Wednesday, December 07, 2011

I tried my coffee black and it was okay. Then I tried with 1% milk and I've settled into drinking it with 1.5 T of 1% and .5T of creamo (10%). Even though I'm not doing as well at this cold turkey thing as I wanted, it has made a difference in my weight. I've lost about 2lb in 2 weeks. Not earth-shattering, but for me it's pretty big.
So here I am at my 10-year lowest weight, but I've been here off and on since March. If only I could really have the discipline to eat clean right now I know I could break this plateau. But, alas, Christmas is upon us... Maybe my goal until January should be to maintain and then go at it with all my might!

    I have 1 cup of coffee a day(well, ok, 1 travel mug of coffee which is 12oz but because I pour it in all at once, I count it as 1 cup:) I have ALWAYS wanted to be a black coffee drinker and have tried and tried but just do not like the taste. Daily, I measure out 2 tbsp of half and half and LOVE my coffee this way. Week by week, you could eliminate a smaller amount of cream till you get there. Let me know how it goes. I would love to read success for you cause I just can't get there yet. I have eliminated that awful(which I always thought was delicious)flavoured creamer this year-one of my small clean eating steps. Hubby was in withdrawal for many many weeks and thought of it as a punishment-haha. He's settled in now. Anyways-sorry for the novel-can you tell all the kiddies are still asleep-LOL! Have a fabulous day and thanks for the smiley goodie. Love it!

    The best I have done with my coffee and still loved the flavor is the new holiday limited edition peppermint mocha sugarfree coffee mate (I totally snagged 4 bottles while it is here, hehe). Dunno if you like flavored coffees, but the peppermint is just the right amount, a hint of after sip cooling as opposed to drinking toothpaste, and the mocha part is not super sweet, more of a semisweet chocolate flavor as opposed to milk chocolate. Makes it nice and creamy too, and its lower in calories than my regular sugarfree french vanilla to boot.
    Good luck on your journey!
