Southern Girl

Hi! I am Lisa. I am married to a wonderful man and have a terrific son. They are my entire world and this journey is for them as much as it is for me.
I started my Spark People journey because now that I am in my 40's, I am no longer slim and fit.
I want to be healthy and fit. I want to feel good about myself. I want to be comfortable in my clothes. But, more importantly, I want to set a good example for my son.

Thanks for commenting on my blog, "It's The Real Thing", Lisa. It wasn't so much the calories that were a shock, it was the way it sneakily defeats your system by forcing out the good nutrients to keep the Coca Cola sugar in. That was some eye-opener! I sent it to my sister, who, like you, has Coke as her one and only weakness.

Years ago, my mother used to say that Pepsi would make your teeth black. Now to see this link, it was quite shocking that it could be applied to the "leader" as well.

I, too, like my Coke fix, but I am so spoiled, I only like it on tap or in April during the Passover holiday (yellow-capped bottles), because it is the only time of the year that Coke uses real sugar rather than corn syrup, and you can really taste the difference (Ashkenazi Jews don't eat corn products during Passover, so that's how we know it's sugar, because it's certified that way).

Being a physician, I really liked the poster that broke down the chemistry of it all. Quite a lesson learned. But I do know that when I'm "good", and drink water, my body really thanks me in ways that only it can. emoticon

We, as a family, went to DC several times when we were young. The deal with my parents was the morning was for "culture" and seeing the sites, and then in the afternoon, we could let it rip in the hotel pool. Heaven!

My mother absolutely adored DC, and I remember on one of the first trips, all I really wanted to do was see the FBI building. Now with all the later monuments, there is still stuff to see.

Glad you enjoyed. I was thinking you are heading back to school shortly. Enjoy the break while you can and stay cool!
