Two Week No Soda Challenge

September 10th, 2012 at 08:32 am

I am going to try to go two weeks without any Soda. I know Lucky Robin is trying to but back on the amount of soda she drinks. This is going to be hard for me. Especially since I have Dr Pepper in my fridge at home. I just have to tell myself that it will still be good in two weeks. During the week I am fine. It is during the weekend that I really end up going overboard. This will be good for me.

The entire weekend was a NSD. I barely left home. But we didn't need anything. Today I have to get milk for work to make my oatmeal with.

No Eating Out: 9/9
NSD: 7/9

    You can do it! I gave up drinking diet soda in January. It was amazing how many times I thought of having one, especially the first few weeks. Now...it is much more rare to think about having a soda. I do occassionally indulge in a regular soda, but right now even those have too many calories...just not worth it.

    When I lost a lot of weight, my doctor asked me, "Did you drink a lot of soda?" I had not been a soda drinker, but actually I did drink diet soda as an oral habits substitute while getting the rest of my eating in line. Obviously he thought I'd lost weight in part by giving up soda. In reality, it was the opposite. I took up soda drinking, but sugar free only. Wink I gradually left off the diet soda later, as really it was not even that appealing to me, but it did help me resist eating the extra sandwich or whatever during the day. I tend to do the same with tea now.

    Hat's off to you. Terrific idea to drop soda which has no nutritional value. Can you substitute fruit or even sugarless gum? Have you rented the other house?

    Snafu: DS is in the process of moving into the house with a couple of roommates.

    I too have given up soda. I occasionally have one if we are out to lunch, but most times I have water or lemonade. I have kept diet in the house for DH who is a type II, and the DD's will drink it, but DD2 has discovered diet snapple peach tea and LOVES it...we can get a 10 pack of single serves for .98 at Winco or at The Dollar Tree. DH also loves iced tea so he has been drinking that too....I however, do not like diet or iced tea, so I usually have water or crystal light. Good luck! I am rooting for you!
