I am starting to find excuses to tell myself so that I can drink a pop – 2 for the whole month is fine; they’re work type lunches, it’s OK. You’ve gone 4 days without a pop, that’s awesome. You can have one tomorrow and not feel guilty. If you go to the movies this weekend, you can have a small one. Who drinks water at the movies? Etc., etc. I’m still up in the air about tomorrow’s work lunch – I know I’m REALLY going to want one and I know I won’t die of thirst if I don’t have one but at the same time, it’s part of the joy of eating out – a treat. I have to start remembering what it was like to have soda as a kid. Once in a while is fine… Special occasions… don’t keep it in the house…. Don’t drink one every day… Things were easy when I was a kid and my parents made all the decisions.
