Crazy, I Know

>> Monday, October 20, 2008

If you've been reading this blog for any amount of time you probably know that I have a love of Pepsi. It was actually a process to wean myself from the fully sugared stuff to the (now defunct) Pepsi Edge and then to the Pepsi One. And I worked hard to limit myself to one or two a day. (HA! Like that ever happened!)

But a very funny thing happened with this last stomach ick that I had... Somehow it diminished my taste for Pepsi. The desire for any soda has actually disappeared. And I haven't had one in 9 days.

NINE DAYS! And it's not like we don't have them in the house... They are sitting, chilled, in the refrigerator. I even put one in Doug's lunch every day. But to grab one for myself? No desire.

So I find myself drinking water (gasp!). And a civilized cup of afternoon tea. With a biscuit if I'm hungry. Which is even more weird as every time I grabbed a Pepsi I wanted a snack. With the tea I can skip the food.

They say that people who drink sodas (even the no-calorie kind) take in more calories daily than people who don't. I totally see it now...

I'm a Pepsi girl too. Diet Caffeine free Pepsi.

Ever since I joined weight watchers and force myself to drink 6 glasses of water a day, I don't have time to drink pop. Although there are days when I do substitute 1 or 2 diet caffeine free pepsi's for my water. Which is considered a water on the ww progam.

However.. the taste just doesn't do it for me anymore.

We don't really buy that much soda for our house. We are definitely more milk drinkers. We can down a gallon of chocolate like nobody's business.

But if we have pop it is gone that day. It really is addictive.

Congrats on nine days of soda freedom. :)
