    I feel your pain with the Mtn Dew. I was so addicted to that stuff. The thought of giving it up made me shudder. Believe me, it gets easier. Here's something that helped me: I think we all need different amounts of water because we're all different weights and different shapes. Take your body weight and divide it in half. That number should be the oz of water you drink in a day. So divide that number 8, because there are 8 oz in a glass. That number is how many glasses you should be drinking. For example, I weigh 255 pounds (used to be 350. Wahoo!). Half my body weight is 127.5. I divide that by 8 and get 15.9. So i should be drinking about 16 glasses of water a day, and I do the best I can. But I'll tell you, when i get it in I feel SOOO good and I lose tons of weight and I don't a have a second to even think about soda because I'm chugging water all day long to meet my goal. I don't have a sip to spare on Mtn Dew. Sounds ridiculous but it really helped me and you'll feel great from all the extra water. Just be prepared to pee alot...

    My foot was giving me a fit a while back.. I looked it up, and before you get bone spurs you have something called a plantar facittis.. if the pain is in your heel, that is most likely your issue. Stretches really help it, also taking motrin or advil will help also. The stretch I did is to extend your leg, and point your toes toward yourself.. it will stretch your calf muscle, and in turn, take the pressure off of that tendon in your foot. Glad to see you back around here, and sooo glad that your cat is alright... I don't know what I would do if something happened to mine!
