3 years without soda!

Thursday, September 16, 2010

Sept. 11th marked 3 years of me deciding to change my life from living very unhealthy to healthy but my biggest accomplishment is going without soda for 3 years! I know some people may say thats no big deal but it is for me. Dr. Pepper was my drug of choice. I drunk that stuff ALL THE TIME!!!!!! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack...I just drunk the stuff but I gave it up! 3 years without it and hopefully I will go with out it for the rest of my life!

This year I have given up cookies, cakes, pies...anything thats considered a snack..and I have done pretty good! I've switched to eating fruit and veggies instead of snacking on all the other bag stuff! My birthday is coming up and every year I get a cake..This year i'm hoping for Ruby tuesdays salad bar..lol...Thats the best salad bar any where around me. Anyway, I have to have a cake..just something that a birthday cant be without..So i've decided that i'm going to get some cup cakes and bring them to the youth at my church to enjoy! I will get enjoyment from the kids eating them! And no, I will not be eating one of them..lol..

    Don't let anyone tell you different. That is a great accomplishment. I cut down to 2 sodas a day and thought that was a big deal. Keep up the good work.

    What do you mean it's no big deal to go three years w/o soda? Let me tell you, that's a BIG deal! Congrats! That is so very awesome. DrPepper was my poison too! I have only made it one month and counting. And like you, I drank it all the time!

    But seriously, good job! Keep it up. Also, as a side note, if you are making the cupcakes yourself, you can substatute the oil called for in the recipe for unsweetened applesauce. No one will ever know the difference and it makes them super moist!

    As for your new goal, a little bit of the sweet stuff will not hinder your weight lose goals...but it's your choice mister!

    That's awesome! I wish I could give up the sweet stuff, but I have too much of a sweet tooth to give it up entirely.... emoticon
