Hi, Angela and Zinrose - welcome to SparkPeople!

Cutting out the diet soda is tough but doable. I used to drink Tab (I know - I date myself) and Coke Zero all the time, unless I was drinking coffee. Now I drink water all day long - most times plain but some times flavored. I like mine at room temperature but like Holly, I keep it with me all day long and just keep drinking. I did have a headache the first day or two with no caffeine, but it was handled easily with tylenol.

Hey Angela! Congrats on making yourself a priority and doing something that is good for you and... just for you!

I struggle with drinking pop when I am at work (I work overnights and caffeine is just so good sometimes lol) so... I want to jump on board with this goal. No pop for two weeks!

I wish you much success. If you can afford it, I have heard good things about Crystal Light, and I think they come in "to-go" packets that are made to be mixed in bottles of water.

Please continue to post with your progress, I look forward to us succeeding together! :)

We should be taught not to wait for inspiration to start a thing. Action always generates inspiration. Inspiration rarely generates action.

Hi there my name is Angela and I am in desperate need and want of losing some major pounds!!!! I made one of my goals not to drink pop for 2 weeks...lord help me!!!! I think I am going to die!!! I love my diet coke...now I know it is bad for me...but it tastes so good!!! Wish me luck!!!i am going to need it, already stressing and it starts tomorrow morning(well now i guess cause i ran out about 15 mins ago). Anyway i am a mother of three fabulous kids ages 9,6,1, and you think i would be skinny with all the running around i do...but no such luck. I am really ready to do this for myself this time...for myself...cant believe I am saying that. I always do everything for everyone else and not myself. But this is for me...for ME!!!!!
