    I started drinking Perrier recently when I crave for a pop. It has the fizz and actually quenches your thirst. Sometimes I mix in some orange/grapefruit juice as a treat. You can also throw in a few slices of lemon/lime.

    Just a thought for all the brides who are watching/counting calories. Cheers!

      I also started drinking Perrier to kill my craving of soda. I stopped drinking soda about 6 years ago, and only have it very rarely...but now with Perrier, I get the fizz fix and with 0 calories! I've tried the Lemon, Lime, and the new Pink Grapefruit.

        I used to drink 2L of Coke every day! 3 years ago I decided that it's just not healthy and switched to iced teas. They aren't really popular in North America,but in Europe/Asia, they sell flavored iced teas everywhere. Usually less calories than pop.

          Awesome! Every now and then I will have an original Coca-Cola (one made with cane sugar) but that is probably on full-moon.

            Crystal Lite Lemonade is my favorite thing, very sweet and gives me that gratification an ice cold soda does. (about 5 calories per serving)

              Alright... I will have to give this Perrier a try because I am a Pepsi FREAK. Especially since it is starting to get warm out I will crave it even more. I hear if you do or don't do something for 21 days, your habit will be gone. I'll give it my best.

                I don't really know about Ice tea in Canada but I think in the US its big! I drink lots of ice tea. Usually green tea though (which is very good for weight loss). Especially during the summer we drink alot of tea and completely cut out pop. When i don't have time to make any tea we drink alot of Arizona Diet Green Tea

                my mom lives in the south and they drink lots of tea, although its sweet!

                    Hi!!! That is pretty cool! So just to see where we're at with planning have you sent out your STD yet? I haven't sent mine yet, just waiting for the supplies in the mail. Good luck with your planning.
