The other solution to all this is NOT to drink coffee period. It has caffeine and with certain health situations - it is not good for you. Solves two problems.

From what I have tried, the fat free Vanilla one taste the same as the full fat one but just has a different consistancy. I tried the sugar-free one and a just about gagged. We also only really drink it more so in the winter when it is cold outside and still dark in the morning and even then it normally only on the weekends.

I have tried to drink black coffee and I just can't. I too use too much creamer, but I usually only drink one cup of coffee and that's only during the winter months. I can't drink coffee in the summer. I've tried milk and the lite creamers and I just about gag on the taste of my coffee. I only drink one brand of coffee also. I don't really know why I drink coffee to be honest. I could easily do hot cocoa or drink a glass of juice.

You can always freeze the bottles of creamer also. My husband really likes one of the seasonal ones so we stock up and put them in the freezer. Then we thaw one out at a time for him to use.

I was a die hard cream and sugar gal too... then came SP. I now drink black coffee with a half teaspoon of splenda in in. I only use cream and sugar as a treat, and very rarely at that... usually only when I get my coffee from a coffee stand.

I know you are going to say yuck and this doesn't happen over night but go black. Growing up my whole family drank black coffee except for me. I was a die hard cream and sugar girl. One day my brother said to try black coffee for a week and see what happens. You must acquire a taste for it. Now I would never dream of going back to cream and/or sugar. And it saves money too. Give it a try you'll like it.

This may sound really dumb but I just realized this morning what a "real" table spoon of coffee creamer looks like. When I have coffee, I have never measured out how much creamer I put in my coffee. I decided I would check to see just what a table spoon of creamer looks like at the bottom of my coffee cup. Well, I realized I actually put about 5 table spoons of creamer in my coffee. If I have 2 cups of coffee, that's an EXTRA 350 calories and 15 grams of fat that I have not been putting into my food tracker. OMG !!! NO wonder this weight has not gone anywhere in months.. Time to switch back to skim milk.
