My Love Affair

With Pepsi....

Why can't I break the spell? My children and all their friends know.. "Don't take the last Pepsi, it's Mom's". People who've been in my house who don't know have done this and my children cower in fear because they know that I won't have my Pepsi. I get irrational, I get headaches, I get MEAN. I'm not a mean person.

Now Pepsi and I came to an agreement. Instead of the big 44 ouncers that I previously indulged in twice a day, we've reduced our affair to a 12 ounce can. Pepsi is okay if I cheat with his friend Diet Pepsi the rest of the day or with tea. and yes I still get my 100 ounces of water on top of all this. So we've reduced our calorie issues. I know it's not perfect and I shouldn't drink my calories, but... I have to have SOMETHING. My life is so stressful. Can I just keep my Pepsi. I gave up chocolate for the most part.

But Pepsi won't break his hold on me. and now that Throwback has come back, oh my, I'm just in heaven.

I know if I ever wanted to compete which I seriously doubt I will, Pepsi and I will have to part ways. I don't want the perfect body (just a smoking hawt one), so I don't feel that I have to give him up totally.

Besides.... I think it's his friend Miller Lite that causes most of my weight gain.

    HAH! My affair has always been with Coke. I used to need him all day every day, but now we only meet on the weekends when we go out fir dinner. My husband is ok with it...he likes him too! emoticon

    Cute blog. Thanks! emoticon
    I left Pepsi long ago, he was just filled with empty calories and just made me crave more. Water is my primary love but once a day I need to cheat emoticon and so I drink water with a 1/2 of packet of Propel. emoticon Actually I've found someone/thing new recently, Crystal Light Pure Fitness. He's naturally sweet, nothing artificial emoticon and I only use half a little packet per water bottle. Each packet is only 15 calories. Give it a try...

    LOL... you made me laugh. Thanks for the fun blog! I had to do all or nothing because I cannot seem to see good limits. If I have one, I have four. So, it's only water for me, and I even gave up the Michelob Ultra Light three weeks ago! I am surprised at what a VICTORY this is, and if you do it, I think you'll feel the same giddy excitement! emoticon emoticon

    I love diet Pepsi too! Seriously... people can keep their Coke. I'll take Pepsi.

    I used to drink 4+ cans a day before I got hooked on water. Now I normally don't drink pop/soda unless I'm out to eat and it's not a week night. The caffeine keeps me up now which is a good deterrent.

    Maybe you and Pepsi can work out a nice suitable relationship. It sounds like you're heading down the right path. :)

    Drinking my friend tea with honey now. Pepsi is okay with it though because he's already been with me. He knows that tea and honey are there to help me heal this sickness that lingers and lingers and lingers.

    You know, I feel your pain! I love soda in general. Especially those with caffeine. I guess my fave is Dr.Pepper, but I'll drink anything in a pinch!

    Although I don't drink as much as I used to (about 3 times a day minimum)I still feel that it is too much. I have gone cold turkey 3x in the past and had awful migraines from it. I found that weaning myself off is much easier for me. Also, I never bothered with the diet versions. I figured it was still a can full of chemicals I didn't need in my body, so if I was to do anything, I just need to give it up totally!

    Well, I hope you are able to "kick the habit" I know it is HARD.

    I'd send you a pic but I can't attach it, so here's the link.

    I use to be a huge Pepsi drinker. I have moved on to his no calorie friend. Diet Pepsi is my issue now, lol.

    It is your choice to give it up or not. I think it is ok if you aren't drinking a lot of it.
