When I finished my A2 Levels (a shocking 4 and a half years ago now) I joined Weight Watchers with my mum in an effort to shift some of my rhinocerous sized body mass.
I was dedicated and determined and I lost 3 and a half stones (around 22 Kg I think) and reached my gold weight. In order to do this, I had to make certain sacrifices....like Coca Cola - the full fat stuff.
Diet Coke was completely allowed, as it has 0 points in it, and could therefore be consumed as much as was desired.
Obviously I complied and quit my fat coke for thin coke and lost the weight.
Having been beaten into submission this way and for so long, I found drinking fat coke unpleasant as it made my teeth feel funny.
It would appear that having quit fat coke for 4 years and then accidentally getting a pint last night had some unusual side effects.
I had the hugest caffeine and sugar rush combined, and proceeded to dance like a woman possessed for the next 30 minutes. My bar supervisor who was out with me was rather bemused as I was bouncing all over the place in a slightly odd manner, and decided to see how far it would go if he got me a second fat coke. Cue a very giddy, bouncy Merys who managed to make everyone think she was drunk out of her skull (except today I don't have the hangover . . . just toothache). I was so hyped up I didn't even have an alcoholic drink all night.
Moral of this story - never ever give me full fat Coca Cola unless you want me to annoy you for the next 30 minutes.
