You rock! For me, quitting soda has been a roller coaster. You almost know it's bad for you as difficult as it is to get past. I wake up motivated to get out of bed because a diet coke is waiting for me at a terrible fast food place. That's not okay.

I'm drinking water today with a goal of one soda. I don't want a caffeine headache, but I'll get back down to zero by the end of the week. I'll hold onto your success to help me do it.

Thanks so much!!

To be happy forever and ever, we must forever endeavour. - me

Congratulations! It makes a big difference, setting a goal which may seem small but is large when you have to confront it throughout the day, every day. Good for you! How are you celebrating?

Okay. Iím rough on myself, so I need to recognize one major achievement for myself.

My goal is more than just weight lossÖ it has to be permanent! It has to be habit-forming and a healthy lifestyle.

So Iím REALLY proud of myself for quitting soda. That was unbelievably hard for me. I heavily relied on the caffeine and sugar to supply my energy, motivation, and mood, when in reality it was just damaging me. When I quit cold turkey I had major withdrawals, it was like PMS+Migraines for two weeks!

For over a month I thought about soda at every meal. Nothing tasted good or felt right without a Dr Pepper. I said over and over again ďA Dr Pepper would be so good right now!Ē to the point of driving my husband insane.

Now, Iíve finally gotten used to drinking 10-12 cups of water per day. I use my water bottle at meals and ask for water at restaurants.

I wasnít perfect at the start - I ordered lemonades and drank Arnold Palmer from cans to make it feel like I was still drinking soda. But I knew that was a cop out and those things too faded.

My goal on my 22nd Birthday was to make it without soda to my 23rd Birthday, but I donít think Iíll want soda then. :)
