After a 6 month relationship, I had to say good bye to Ben & Jerry and even though I would like to still be friends, I know I can’t do it right now. I’ve gain 10 pounds and Jeff has gained 15 pounds, thanks to Ben & Jerry. Yes we have been sucking it down about 4 pints a week.
I could not believe how fast I was putting on weight without ever realizing that I was spooning up 280 calories for 1/2 cup. Of course I was not eating half a cup, who can? I did the math on the calories and it came out to 2040 calories a week OMG, I almost died when I saw it. All it took was 2 pints for each of us to gain the weight.
I informed Jeff that this was the end with Ben and Jerry and he was not having it. He claimed that his relationship with Ben & Jerry’s was not going to end anytime soon and of all his friends they had never let him down. I understand, I said, but it was either them or me!
So I made him a doctor’s appointment for a physical and wouldn’t ya know, Jeff is now borderline diabetic. So as the relationship comes to an end until we lose the weight, I want to thank Cookie Dough and Peanut Butter Cup for all the wonderful memories that I have made. I will never forget you because I have the constant reminder that I can’t button my pants!!!
So Goodbye Ben & Jerry, until we meet again! Oh and here is my favorite recipe with ice cream : )
