I broke up with Diet Pepsi 3 weeks ago.
It's been the roughest 3 weeks of this weight loss challenge.
Now you may be thinking, why on earth would she break up with Diet Pepsi? It doesn't have any calories.
When I didn't have a Diet Pepsi at 1:00 in the afternoon while the kids had their quiet time, I would have a massive headache by 3:00. The kind of headache that pounded my brains so much that I could barely see.
Yeah.... I was addicted to aspartame.
So I said goodbye.
And it hurt. A LOT!!!!
I had headaches everyday at 3:00 lasting until I went to bed and slept it off. A lot of Tylenol was consumed.
But I'm finally free of it.
I still have cravings every afternoon at 1:00, but I've been filling the void with extra water.
Wanna know the best part?
Check out my waist measurement from 3 weeks ago (before I broke up with Diet Pepsi):
It was a whopping 38 inches! Eeeeshhh.
Today I'm still the same weight as I was 3 weeks ago: 158 lbs. But my waist measures in at 35.5 inches!
The soda bloat is going away! :D :D :D
