healthy habits

Have you ever decided to "give up" something in the interest of better health? Recently, I joined a "lose 10 pounds" challenge on SBA. I figured the only way to do this is to drop some of the nasty habits I have. First, I decided to stop drinking soda. I've tried this before...but never succeeded. I love Pepsi. I hate diet sodas, so making the switch to diet was not going to happen. So, I figured I needed to just drop it all together.


And....it's been 3 weeks! I don't even want soda any more. In addition, I am not craving sweets like I used to. I wonder if it's related. Anyway, I have lost 5 pounds, and I am thrilled! Only 5 more to go to meet the challenge.

Keep up the good work!!! It'll all pay off! I lost 20 pounds last summer and I have never felt so good :-) You can do it!!!

Wow, that's great!!! Definitely stay off the soda. I was hypnotized for weight loss about 4 yrs. ago. The only thing that stuck with me is the soda thing. All I drink is water. It's SO much better for you!!

Good for you! I am on the no soda kick, although I've slipped twice. It really does make a difference though! Reading your blog, now I am renewed to keep my water bottle full!

Oh, I need to be on a no soda kick. Lately that is all I crave and I'm trying to loose the 10 lbs on sba too! Keep up the great work.
