Hi. My Name is Faith.

And I’m a Slurpeeholic.  It started when I was having an incredible craving for Coke, but because of my lap band surgery, I’m not allowed to drink Coke because of the carbonation. So Diet Coke was out of the picture. I tried the advice of a friend–bought a bottle of Diet Coke, shook it and shook it and shook it and shook it, and then took the lid off and left it overnight, but it just wasn’t the same.

So I got a Coke Slurpee. Now, if they had Diet Coke Slurpees, I wouldn’t be writing this post. It would be a moot point, because there wouldn’t be sugar in it. But alas, they do not, and so I’ve been drinking multiple Coke/Dr Pepper mix Slurpees every week.

Sarah-bear conducted an intervention today. I’m allowed EITHER two regular-sized Slurpees a week, or else one of the 32-oz ones. I’ll let you guess which one I got at lunch today.

She’s my sponsor for Slurpeeholics Anonymous, so I told her that when I am craving Slurpees I’m going to call her and whine.  She must really love me, because she agreed.  And on the positive side, my weight loss will pick back up once I’m not consuming I’m not telling you how many empty calories in Slurpees every week.

Any other Slurpeeholics who want to join SA, please leave a note for me and let me know I’m not alone. PLEASE let me know I’m not alone!
