Makin' a Difference

Thursday, September 05, 2013

Soda. Well, January 1st, 2013 was the last time I had a caffeinated soda. I can't believe it has been this long. Almost 9 months. On August 7th, 2013 I made another final move. No more soda caffeinated or not. So, it has been about month. Doesn't seem that long but, if I can make it that long I can make it a life time. Plus, now I am finding other things to drink.

Step 1: completely checked off the list.

Woot woot!!

    Fantastic. I quit drinking COKE emoticon about six years ago, but I do have one once in a while. I'd still like to drink them everyday.

What is it with soda for me?

Thursday, June 27, 2013


Got up this morning feeling really thin. My weight fluctuates so much that it is mornings like this that I have to jump on the scale. Believe it or not I am down 8 pounds since Monday. Coincidentally, this happens to be the same time I gave up soda. This happens every time I give up soda. It is really amazing. And the cool thing is...It won't come back. Unless, of course, I start drinking soda again. I am so excited but, it is almost like I am deflating or

Whatever it is I am soooo happy that it's gone. Anyway, I am so glad I have you to write and be excited with. I mean really, I can't walk around and tell everyone in my life....hey, did you notice I lost 8 pounds since Monday. Yeah, all I did is I quit drinking is our little celebratory secrets.

    Stay with it. I didn't have a good day today, as my son had a lot of left over food from having a house guest so I ate there. BUT, back on track NOW.

  not a direct cause and effect there, except you probably lost some water weight.

    Glad to see you are doing well. I went to see the new STAR TREK Movie (it was very good) and I had popcorn and soda, so I KNOW I'll be up on the scale in the morning, but it has been a LONG time since we have gone to a movie since we have Netflex. This was a movie that we had to see on the big screen. Love it.

    Your day seemed to go better than mine. I didn't get all my moving in - I felt tired, sluggish and guilty.

  You guys are great! Jibbie I know what you mean. I feel like if I just keep writing I will get there. Last time, I worked the program I lost 40 pounds. I have gain all but 4 pounds back. Today, I did better, but that is another blog.

So it seems like we are all in this boat together. LET'S DO THIS!!!!

    Hey, I'm starting over today, too, so let's do this together. I've been at the same weight now since November '10 which is really pathetic, but I'm not back up to the 214# that I was when I joined Sparks, so I think that that is good. Had I not continued to sign in to Sparks daily, I know by now I'd be about 314#. People NEVER look at that as a SUCCESS, but I think of it that way. I'm at 175.4# today which is up 9# from what my "Tracker" says, so today I'm changing my tracker as I have left it there since November '10.
Let's do this. emoticon

  think about this: we start over every day. what we did yesterday is in the past. we can't change anything we did in the past. so, every day is a fresh start.
