Wednesday Weigh In: Good Bye Diet Pepsi


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

So goodbye Diet Pepsi - it's been swell.
