Finish Summer Strong-SIPPITY LITE Iced Chocolate Raspberry Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 9/3/2016

The Friday before the Memorial Day weekend, Andrew, my boss, called the entire accounting department staff into his office for a meeting. I wasn’t sure what to expect since I had heard stories about meetings like this occurring right before a major long weekend holiday where the boss announces the company has been sold. As it turned out the purpose of the meeting was for him tell us about his mother who was just recently diagnosis with diabetes and to challenge us to a weight loss program. “The rules are simple,” he said. “Whoever loses the most weight as a percentage of their body weight by Labor Day gets $1000. And whoever loses the most weight gets $500.”

That night I told the members of my book club about Andrews challenge. Cynthia told me that she managed to lose 34 pounds by going to the gym for an hour a day and eating healthier. Ruth wished me luck and told us of how she has tried every diet “under the sun” to lose weight. Then Carol told us how she lost 20 % of her body weight. “It’s the Sippity Lite three reps per day diet.”

Ruth sarcastically stated, “I never heard of that diet. How does it work?”

“I drink three cups of Sippity Lite flavored gourmet coffee every day. One, when I get to work. One at lunch, and one around 4 PM.”

“Sippity Lite hot chocolate?” Cynthia injected. “I never heard of it.”

“It’s wonderful,” Carol stated. “It contains less than 2 grams of sugar per serving and comes in six delicious gourmet flavors-Chocolate, chocolate cinnamon, chocolate marshmallow, chocolate peppermint, pumpkin spice and my favorite chocolate raspberry. I used to bring a container of iced chocolate raspberry where ever I went.”

Eight weeks after Carol told me of the “Sippity Lite three reps per day diet” I’m happy to report that I have lost twenty-four pounds-19 % body weight, feel great and am on my way to collect $1000 the day after Labor Day from Andrew. I just need to finish the summer strong. No junk food or beer this Labor Day weekend but rather plenty of Sippity Lite iced chocolate raspberry iced hot chocolate and I got it.

Needless to say I was absolutely delighted, when my boss announced not only was I the winner of the largest weight loss percentage ($1,000) but also the person who lost the most weight ($500). Thank you Sippity Lite!
