Hi, my name is Dessalena and I am an addict...

Friday, March 23, 2012

and it has been 6 days since I have had any soda!!!!
I knew I had to quit drinking soda ( all carbonated beverages)when I found out they were putting me back on my old medicine because it seriously tastes like I'm drinking battery acid...or something. I didn't expect it to be this easy though. I actually quit 2 days before I started the medicine and I'm just realizing that it has basicly been a week ( tomorrow will be officially a week). I'm not usually one to be proud of myself ( I have issues lol) but I deserve a pat on the back.

Plus I lost 3 pounds this week. I am sure there is no way I would have been able to lose 3 pounds in a week had I still been drinking soda.

I'm super stoked !! emoticon

    Great job on giving up the soda! That is fantastic progress!

    I know what you mean about the meds. When I have taken Diamox I haven't been able to drink soda. For me, it takes the carbonated feel out of it.

    Beside that, the body has no need for soda. Keep up the good work!

    I grew up and lived most of my life drinking soda. And I could barely function without it. (That's a BIG red flag ...when you can't function without a certain beverage!!!)

    I've read many times that research shows that diet soda increases one's appetite..making a person think they're hungry when they really aren't. I solved that phony "hunger" with M&M's. Gee...I can't imagine why I had a weight problem, can you?

    Congrats on kicking the habit...and on losing the weight!!! You've gained a major step in moving on to good health! Stay on that healthy road!

    ((( Super stoked with you!! )))
    About 3 years ago, I loved Dr. Pepper and Root Beer!
    .....I am a living example of someone who gave it up, and I do not miss it's absence.
    I don't even struggle with it....Water is my drink.

    Water with a splash of lemon, lime or even a splash of cranberry juice is a good substitute and it gets your water in!!!
