I am sure that Coke Classic is the chief reason I gained the last 25 lbs. Love it. Since starting SP on 5/30/10, I went off soft drinks cold turkey. I feel better without all the sugar and carbonated water. Knew I would but did not want to lose my crutch.

My partner loves his soft drink, but in the interests of weight loss he is trying to give it up. He has discovered that soda water has the bubbles that give him that soft drink "feeling" and so he is happy. And bonus he drinks more water and it is cheaper than soft drink. WIN, WIN, WIN! Just be care to use only carbonated water not mineral water which has alot of sodium in it :)
1/2 teaspoon oil, such as olive (or jojoba, a liquid wax) 1/4 cup vinegar or fresh lemon juice Mix the ingredients in a glass jar. Dab a soft rag into the solution and wipe onto wood surfaces. Cover the glass jar and store indefinitely.

10 drops lemon oil 2 tablespoons lemon juice A few drops olive oil or jojoba
Dip a soft recycled cloth, such as one of flannel, in the lemon oil mixture, and wipe furniture.
Whenever I feel like I want something sweet but not ready for a snack, I take a water bottle and drill it up with cold water and add a (or two depending on the bottle size) flavored drop-in. The Hawaiian Punch ones are the best - sweet and cooling AND you get your water in!
