Day 11 no soda!!

Friday, June 29, 2012

It's not as hard as I thought it would be but it's like everything I have learned its about a mindset n determination!! I've had a few difficult moments like my fav was eating popcorn n diet coke! Green tea taste just as good! Lol it's all about breaking habits and routines! I always got a diet coke when going to movies but I learned to freeze a bottle of tea n bring with me! Lol my challenge is going well!! We are 2 weeks in the challenge n I've lost both weeks!!! Not a whole lot but heading in the right direction!! Training for virtual 5 k challenge and I am up to 2 miles walking at least 5-6 days a week!
Healthy eating going strong and eating at least 6-8 veg n fruits a day! Also try n eat few nuts a day trying to get my tracker well rounded n not going over or under on anything! Sodium is hard but I have actually met it for a whole week!! Trying to not eat processed and eat mostly fresh or frozen!! Keep on pushing!! The beat came out 1 day last week!! Went into a cookie frenzy!! But stayed in cal range!! The beast is locked up!!! Lol staying away from fast food n very seldom eat out!! Losing weight has slowed down drastically from when I first started trying not to get discouraged n telling myself it's better to lose slow to keep it off!! I am determined to do this!! I will do this!!

    I have no problem with drinking diet soda, but I gave up eating between meals. Any habit is hard to replace with other habits, but it can be done. Congrats!

    Go Janet go. You are doing awesome. Is is just making up your mind. Now I need to do that with things that are sweet. I get a little discouraged since giving up the soda because I really have not lost a lot of weight from it. But its all good all the better for me. We can do it together.

    Weigh To Go!! All those chemicals in diet foods and processed foods definitely aren't very healthy.
    Keep up the GRRRRREAT work!
    I know... YOU CAN DO IT!!!

    I used to drink a 64 oz cup of soda a day. As I got older, there would be more and more soda in the refrigerator the next day. So I cut back. Now I only drink a can or two when we have a potluck at work. I find soda is the only thing that cuts all the sodium in the food others bring, since I don't cook with salt. I do miss the bubbles. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Good for you! I truly need to break the soda so always encouraging to read that someone is making it happen.
