Finally someone came up with a pre-made, calorie-free drink that isn't carbonated! I'm drinking a Diet Snapple raspberry tea right now and it is delicious!

Michelle Obama's agenda to rid the schools of sodas that contain sugar is not something I support politically or morally. However, I always wondered why people would choose to drink a 200+ calorie drink loaded with sugar, when a diet soda tastes just as good and is calorie free, safe for your teeth, and guilt free.

I think it's up to the parents not the gov't or schools, as to whether children should be allowed to drink regular sodas but if I had children and I don't, I would definitely not allow it.

Aspartame.

Running fixes that sugar problem really well.

hasn't diet Snapple been around for a while?
I just went back to being lowcarb fro the umpteemth time today (it's the only thing that keeps extra weight off me)
I went off it, almost two years ago
..knew within six months that it was a mistake, and it has taken me this long to get the inner strength to go back.

FYI..
FM,
Your Christmas post, about you and your sister, your childhood and the christmas radio show songs was really touching to me..wanted to mention that.

Also, today I saw a documentary on Mexican, cartel, associated gangs in Pheonix. How they are kidnapping people all the time these days, and extorting their families to get them back (usually it's done to low level gang members who messed up in some way) you wife's cousin came to mind.
Did you guys ever get him back?
When I was watching today I was like, "Wow, this is what FM was talking about on the board" scary, creepy stuff..and it's happening more and more on the US side of the border

It probably has but I think this calorie free version (instead of just low calorie) is something fairly new. I could be wrong, I haven't been doing much of the shopping since remarrying.

I lost a ton of weight with it years ago then suddenly it quit working. No one can figure it out but now if I do low carb, the weight barely comes off if at all. It sucks because it was the only diet I could stick with.

FM,

Aw, thanks. It wasn't an actual show I listened to, the songs were on vinyl, but now the songs can only be bought on mp3 download because they never made any cds from the records.

Also, today I saw a documentary on Mexican, cartel, associated gangs in Pheonix. How they are kidnapping people all the time these days, and extorting their families to get them back (usually it's done to low level gang members who messed up in some way) you wife's cousin came to mind.

Nope the family hasn't heard from him and I guess they probably won't for a long time if ever. They dare not go looking as that'll get ya killed. And he hasn't contacted them, I assume for the same reason.

I guess he's either dead, or helping the Zetas Cartel do their business.

The subject is moot around the family. Too painful to talk about and hypothesize with each other about.

I think it's just another one of those totally glaring hypocritical things about the Obama administration. Janet Napolitano was Govenor of Arizona and knows all too well what is going on down there, and still sided with Obama's lawsuit against Arizona's decision to secure their own border. That is a really sickening level of hypocrisy if you ask me. And she even admitted that she never even read the Arizona law! Yet she supports a lawsuit against it. Unprecedented numbers of radicals, socialists, and hypocrites in today's administration... and they are so brazen about it! They go on like it's completely normal and acceptable, and thumb their nose at everyone else!

Ok enough of that, I'll have to take another lisinopril if I continue....
