Well, I said I'd drop my Pepsi when I hit my first plateau. Officially, I'm still losing weight - although it is much slower than it had been. The Pepsi is just one of the high-calorie choices I've been making lately, but if I can eliminate it that's automatically 150 calories less a day. Not much, but every little bit helps. My One A Day Energy multivitamin claims to have as much caffeine as a cup of coffee. I don't know how that compares to soda, but I'm feeling that it's less. Already my head is a bit foggy if not quite achey and I'm only an hour overdo for my buzz. So . . . we'll see how it goes. I have Tylenol, and No-Doz, and exercise to keep me going. Speaking of which, I better get out and go to the gym before I fall back to sleep!
My true inspiration for this latest endeavor is my IRL friend Jodi. She's been struggling to quit smoking. Nicotine is said to me much more addictive than caffeine. I've done this before. I can do it again. Prepare for the whining.
