I have, for the past three days, limited myself to one Pepsi and maybe one Root Beer a day. The rest of the time I have been drinking water. Okay, that water is either the SoBe 0 calories stuff or water with Mio added to it, but those are all 0 calories and I am drinking water!
And I haven't felt the jittery, caffeine induced shakes that I used to get. I am wondering if my shakes were actually withdrawal or just psychosomatic?
And I have been better about tracking what I eat. I am still going over my daily calorie allowance, but not by as much as I used to. Yesterday I was only 235 calories over and today, unless I REALLY mess up with dinner, I will only be about 110 calories over.
The exercise is where the hard part for me is going to come in. I am getting used to eating less and that my body doesn't need as much, but I am having so much trouble motivating myself to exercise. After work all I want to do is just curl up and read or play WoW with D or just veg.
Maybe the secret is to get up when the cats actually wake me (about 5:30 am) and work out then. The problem with that is that I don't want to wake D. I'll have to talk with him about it, but if I can get into that habit, maybe I can do this. I am already down 1.5 pounds from last week just adjusting my portions, so...
