Dr. Pepper Connoisseur

I love Dr. Pepper and I consider myself to be somewhat of a connoisseur. For instance, I hate Sonic's Dr. Pepper, it is never any good. But I love McDonalds Dr. Pepper, it's one of the best. I grew up drinking Dr. Pepper, but I am unsure how I found that love since no one else in my family partakes in the deliciousness. Then, my first year of college, I made the ultimate sacrifice- I gave it up (mostly because I was now on my own and it was cheaper to drink water). Without it even being the goal, I lost weight by giving up my favorite drink. I was actually the thinnest I have ever been my first year of college! But then the summer between my Junior and Senior year, I worked as a nurse aide at a hospital. Waking up at 5:30am wasn't exactly my cup of tea, and I needed a caffeine boost to get me through the day. So I rediscovered my old friend DP and have been drinking it ever since.

So now, almost 4 years later, I have begun exercising regularly because I am the heaviest I have ever been (marriage will do that to you I've heard...) I have lost a little weight, but I haven't been seeing the results I want. So I have decided to make the ultimate sacrifice once again, and give up drinking Dr. Pepper. The exception is on Friday I drive ten minutes out of my way to get a Dr. Pepper from the Glenpool Daylight Donuts. As a Dr. Pepper connoisseur, I can tell you with confidence that the Glenpool Daylight Donuts has THE BEST Dr. Pepper. So all week I have been drinking water or diet coke. Until today. I woke up early and made the drive to Glenpool to buy my Dr. Pepper. I have savored every drop and I look forward to next Friday when I get to "sin" again.
