1 pound lost, 8 days without pop

Sunday, January 09, 2011

Yesterday was day 8 of my no pop. I didn't promise to not drink any pop, just to cut back. I having been feeling sluggish. I broke down and had half a can of diet coke. I don't feel any more energetic and it didn't taste as well as I remember. It's back to water with lemon. I have also lost 1 pound. I know it's not much, but each pound counts. Plus I have had a lot of stress at school. I think my body is reacting to the stress. I have been exercising every day even thought I hurt my back. I had to cut back to walking instead of jogging and using the elliptical machine. Yoga has been good for my back too, just not stretching as far. All in all it has been a successful week for me.
I am a little sad. My son went back to college today after being home for 3 1/2 weeks. I will miss him, but not the mess!

    You're doing great! Keep it up.

    Noticed a change in your taste already? emoticon

    That happened to me, too.

    After I had been off of soda pop for a while my taste buds changed drastically.

    All of a sudden apples, for example, tasted so sweet. I was never crazy about them and now I love them.

    The thought of eating sweet potato gagged me. Now I love baked sweet potatoes!

    There so many things that taste so yummy to me now. Unreal. LOL

    I was also able to decrease the amount of sugar I used in my coffee a few granuales at a time. I would tap the measuring spoon to knock off a liitle each week until I got down to 1/2 tsp.
    Then I went for broke and began drinking it without any sugar at all.
    Now I drink coffee with just a splash of skim milk.

    I can't stand sugar in my coffee anymore.


    I didn't have any soda pop for one whole year. No sweetened iced tea either.

    Now I can enjoy a small glass as a 'treat' once in a great while.

    Never ever did I imagine that I could accomplish this.

    Congrats on the 1lb and the soda break. I also didn't make giving up soda a goal but I find that with tracking my water intake I automatically drink it less. I couldn't believe how many "empty" calories I was consuming with soda. Great job!

    My son is going back to school this weekend also! The house will be back to clean and orderly, but oh so quiet. I get sad but, amazingly, I adjust quickly:)
