That venti latte looks great with your venti ass.

20 ounces??? Are people serious?

First, unless it's booze, why bother drinking your calories.

Second, that much milk is sick. Totally sick. It will fuck up your body and it's just a waste of calories.

Lattes are gross. Stop drinking them immediately. (Same for mochas and every other deviant form of steamed milk concoction.)

I gave up the latte and now order "grande americano with two inches on nonfat milk and one splenda". It takes a lot longer to say but the benefits are worth it. I'm not suppose to have splenda, but in indulge a bit. I just realized how sad that sounds.

I heard those things have upwards of 900 calories. Thank God I hate hot drinks of all kinds, because that really is a waste of calories. I'd rather eat fries.

Word. Milk is just offensive.

Thank you, Elizabeth -- I have been trying for months now to come up with the exact phrase that will get me that drink.

As for the post title: Ouch. I resemble that remark.

Take heart Mamacita... I have the venti ass and yet I don't even get to enjoy the venti drinks, so if we're keeping score, you're definitely winning.

You know, in NYC Starbucks has to post the calories on all their food items (has to/does... actually not sure)...

Pretty much EVERYTHING in the case is over 450 calories. The cookies, the muffins. Oy. I think starbucks should have to write the est # of calories on the cup of each drink it serves.

this is so true, but it took me a while to wean off the latte.

Kiki said...

Are you actually saying you drink coffee black, always? Chain / fastfood restauarants in NYC are now required by law to post calories.

Decorno said...

I always get drip coffee and put a bit of half and half in.

This is why I just drink black coffee. It wakes me up and keeps me full with none of those nasty calories or fat grams.

Then, it's water, water, water for the rest of the day

I just read all of your posts. The two of you are the same as myself and a friend. I couldn't help but laugh and think of how similar we must sound. Good luck with your weight loss goal! Goals are always good but I'm sure you're gorgeous as well.
