21 days, I can't believe it (has now stretched in to 18 months)

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

****I know this was an old one but I just wanted to say I am still not drinking pop. It has been almost 18 months since I gave it up and I haven't regreted a minute of it*****

I have gone 21 days without pop! I would've never in a million years thought I could do this. I drank pop everyday for as long as I can remember, sometimes more than a 2 liter a day, so for me this is HUGE. I won't lie it was pretty hard at first but with each day it gets easier and now when I go to a counter to order something to drink, I'm like "water please", lol it feels so good and I have noticed a difference inside my body as well. Every now and then I'll get the urge to have my diet Dr. Pepper but I grab a water instead and remind myself that I don't need it and I'm stronger than my addiction

    Thank you ladies! I've been drinking water mostly but sometimes with lunch and dinner I'll add a package of flavoring to my bottle that is calorie and sugar free * not sure if I can say the name of it or not* and I usually drink half of it with lunch and the other half with dinner emoticon

    Good for you!!

    My hubby was drinking 2 liters of pop a day and I finally got him off of it! He hates water. It was really frustrating. But I got him to start drinking flavored carbonated water and he loves it!

    I really hope you stick with it. He lost 20 lbs being pop free.

    Good luck!!
