Day 2 without Diet coke

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

So yesterday was my first day without a diet coke! I was proud of myself. And really yesterday wasn't too bad. It wasn't too hard. I did miss it, but I didn't need it. Today is day 2. So far I am good. I still miss it, but don't feel the need for one. I am trying to replace it with water, but still want some things that have flavor. Unfortunately, those things are adding calories to my day too.

I don't plan on giving up diet coke for good, but I don't want it just sitting around so I can drink countless cans of it a day. I don't want my kids to automatically want it. We can have it should the opportunity arise, but we won't plan on keeping it in stock!

Calories and eating are confusing me. I haven't been religiously counting calories. I have been controlling how much I eat though. I haven't been eating until I am stuffed. I don't know if I want to focus on counting calories or focus on just controlling portions. I am getting kind of irritated with counting calories. I don't know. Maybe it is just a phase that the lack of diet coke is causing? No telling!

I weigh this Friday, so I can see where I am then. I honestly don't know where I will be. I weigh every 2 weeks and I don't know if I have done good, bad, or been indifferent. I think indifferent because I haven't done bad, but I don't feel that I have done good either.

I am just glad that it is Wednesday. I can't wait for the weekend. Last weekend was not relaxing or restful at all, so I am hoping that this one will be full of relaxation!! I doubt it, but one can hope right?!

    emoticon Congrats on giving up Diet Coke! I drink iced tea with Stevia and lemon slices, it's addictive! I'm not ready to give up caffeine. I will, and maybe this year hopefully, but that's even harder than giving up soda. Good luck with your weight loss!
