The links between artificial sweeteners and weight loss (or the lack thereof) have NOT been unequivocally linked to the sweeteners themselves. My personal opinion is that the reason there's a link is a psychological one. You are drinking a no-calorie drink, and you can therefore rationalize overeating since you "saved" calories in the drink. People tend to overeat because they see it as letting them eat more, since t hey're not drinking as many calories.
There's absolutely no evidence whatsoever that just adding some flavor to your water will sabotage your efforts.
