So many of you have asked how I am doing with giving up my Diet Mt. Dew. I'm really sorry I haven't given you an update sooner. I was curious to see how long it had actually been since I did that post. September 15th. Wow...I didn't realize it had been that long!
I was waiting to update everyone when I had something positive to share. And, the truth is, it got worse before it got better. After I told everyone about my large daily intake of soda....I cut it down to 2 DMD's (that's what we call it) a day. That lasted about three weeks. And then, I was right back up to 6, 7, 8 a day. I was really mad at myself...especially since I said I was going to do better for my family. I will do anything for my family...or so I thought.
I am now finally ready to update all of you! I'm so happy to say that today is 20 days since my last soda. I have learned, that I don't have the ability to limit my soda to one or two a day. That doesn't work for me...I have proven that to myself over and over. Plus, if I have anything other than water in the house, I will definately choose that, instead of water! I treat myself when we are out to dinner to one ice tea. We no longer have soda in the house, which is a good thing for all of us.
The good news is that I feel better. I am not hungry all the time anymore. I don't wake up in the morning all bloated from the previous days soda consumption. I have more energy. I actually feel like I can do anything now. And the best part, my family is really proud of me.
I just want to thank all of YOU for your kind comments and emails....and patience too!
You guys are the BEST! I appreciate all of you.
I hope I never have to blog about Diet Moutain Dew again!
