Hi! Well, when I first started Sparkpeople, I didn't really record my foods or exercise daily. So, needless to say, I didn't really lose that much weight-maybe around 3 or so pounds. But around January, after Christmas break, I really got into it and started recording everything I ate and I started excercising regularly. I've had days/weeks when I've fallen off my plan, and those have slowed me down a little, but I've pretty much been working on it seriously since January. That makes 2 and a half months or so! 3412 days ago
Hey Kelsey. I just read all of your blogs and noticed that you also tried the Atkins Diet. Yes, I also used the Atkins Diet in the past. It did nothing good for me. I would Lose weight and Gain it back as soon as I had a slice of bread. LOL.
I am new to this site and looking for people to communicate with.
Hello there! Well, your question is a good one. I have actually cut back on the diet soda dramatically, but haven't completely stop drinking it. I managed to not have any for several months, and then needed the boost and started drinking it again. I was drinking a minimum of 12 sodas a day...all day...all night...first thing right out of bed. It was excessive consumption, and I could not function without it. I had headaches often. I have only 1 soda a day now, if I have one. I am also finding that drinking more water is helping me to lose weight. I didn't drink water before, except if I was exercising...and sometimes I had a diet soda in my hand. I did manage to lose countless pounds drinking it, but was stuck at a plateau for quite some time. I cut back on the soda and continued with my healthy eating habits, exercise, and started drinking my 8 glasses of water everyday, and 12 pounds have come off since December. I am happy with those results so far. It's working for me.
Thanks for stopping by. Good Luck to you! :0) 3428 days ago
