I gave up my beloved Pepsi last fall. It was very hard to do. I was down to 2 a week and I kept that up for about 3 months before I gave it up. I'm a happier person for it though. I hadn't realized how dependent I was on the caffeine and sugar. I exercised to give me the energy I didn't have. At first it seemed like I'd never feel up to working out without having someone push me but then I realized that my exercising only benefits me. No one cares if I gain weight or lose it. I have to want it to do it. As I slowly started shedding the weight seeing the weight loss in my face motivated me to keep going. I no longer have the round face I saw in the mirror a year ago. I have another 50lbs to go but I'm going to take my time to make sure the weight stays where it needs to be...gone!
