That can't be right...
About a month ago we were on our way to my in-laws house to celebrate Thanksgiving (we celebrated early with them because we were going to be out of town on the actual day) and we stopped to get gas. I ran in to get a couple of drinks and I found Arizona Cranberry Ice Tea. I thought it was terribly festive so I tried it and it was awesome. I looked around every where I went but I couldn't find it, except at this one gas station. Until last night. I found the motherload... BRILLIANT! I almost started to load up the cart and then thought I should probably calculate the Points+ value on that. So I did and the can was 6 points. Then I calculated the Points+ value on a regular can of Arizona Lemon Iced Tea and it was 9 points. NINE FREAKING POINTS!!! Well that certainly explains why my weight loss hasn't been very much the last few weeks! I'd been drinking 3-4 cans per week. Apparently I'm back to Diet Snapple (which is delicious) or figuring out how to make my own Cranberry Iced Tea.
Have you ever thought you were doing really well and then found out that you made a huge error like this?
