A Sad Farewell....

 It has been so nice knowing you!

I guess I have been in denial since these Caramel Frappe's showed up at McDonalds.  I've been going through the drive through two or three times a week (usually after I leave the gym) to get a small one.  I knew they tasted too good to be low calorie/low fat....but I continued to get them anyway...pretending what I didn't know wouldn't hurt me. Until the other day, as I was picking up my drink ( I ordered a small but they gave me a medium, oh yea!), I asked the nice lady at the window if she knew how many calories were in one. She kindly handed me a sheet of paper with all the information on it. Oh my word!  No wonder my capris have been feeling a bit tight!  A medium Caramel Frappe' has 550 calories in it and 24 grams of fat!  I could have had a Big Mac for a few less calories!   I'm sure anyone with any control would have tossed their drink right out the window....but not me.  I drank it knowing it would be my last one....and enjoyed every last drop of it!

Well, at least you were able to enjoy that one!
Plus...if you let it be your once in a long while treat...then you won't feel so deprived.
How was the bake sale?
Have a great week!

Kerri, I tend to jump to conclusions and when I saw your title I was worried that you were giving up blogging. Whew! I'm glad that's not the case. I will also say that I prefer the blssful ignorance of not knowing how many calories are in things. I'm pretty sure I consume an obscene amount.

I've seen your comments on a few blogs, so I thought I'd stop by. I'm glad I did. Just the kind of place I like to visit.
I'll be back.
(And I won't bring you any refreshments from McD's when I come. Just to help you out!)

Sorry about your discovery:( Don't you know your not supposed to ask such things, do you think I asked about that creme stick before I ate it?

Mercy! why oh why do the best things have to be bad for us!? I would have enjoyed every drop too! but , good for you!

Those forbidden, hidden calories. Why can't they be in yucky food...the kind that tastes really, so I really like food.
And I think it is awesome that you finished it off. You don't want to waste a good thing...yet!

Kim said... it! I've always been afraid of drinks like that for that reason. I prefer to gorge on the Big Macs and pretend they're not packed with calories. Yes, ignorance is bliss. :)

I hate making discoveries like that. It's like losing a good friend. Krispy Kreme I'm talking to you.
