This week has been a long one! But I wanted to share all the good things that I have experienced since I gave up diet soda on 2/13/13!
1. I have way more stamina at the gym in my classes
2. I dont have to take naps on my lunch hour- I'm less sluggish through the day
3. I Dont have that horible craving for sweets anylonger. Its so much more controlled.
4. I feel that I am more regular- that food digests better too.

I have no idea if all these are linked from giving up the diet sodas- and it wasnt even as hard as I thought it would be to kick the 2-3 sodas per day habbit.

Just one more step in the healthy direction

    Wow that is great...I have heard that diet coke actually causes brain cells to die off..Are you eating Low Glycemic foods as well? I noticed that I feel fantastic inside since I changed my eating. Funny thing is I go over my calorie range most days and still losing slowly but surely.

p.s. I found a great drink for when you must have something...1/2 cup orange juice, 1/2 cup club soda and a good squirt of lime juice. I add splenda, but if you are giving up artificial sweetners, without is very good as well. Or perhaps some people use stevia as suppose to be a natural sweetner.

    CONGRATS to you on your accomplishment. Any habit is hard to concur, you are well on your way. I've heard 21 days is the key, good luck.

I've never been a soft drink person, I'm not keen on the carbonation !!! Ice-T is my drink, of course that's when I'm not having a Cosmo !!!!

  At one time I was drinking an entire two liter in a day. I haven't had soda in over a year and I feel much better as well!
Keep it up!
