If At First You Don't Succeed...Your Heart Will Go Haywire and Your Doctor Will Wag His Finger At You!

I have not made a post in a while because I have been a little "postal" haha. No seriously I have been a little on edge. I finally decided to My doctor is making me! kick the soda habit for good. I cut back to a can a day for a week, then to a 1/2 a can a day for two days then none at all. It has been 5 days now with absolutely no soda. Except for the gulp of JC's Mt. Dew I swigged at lunch yesterday out of pure desperation, which made me immediately gag. I cannot stand that stuff, Icky, Eww, Yucky, Gross! I have tried many, many times to kick this habit and have failed miserably at every attempt. Not this time! I am going to do it! Not that I have a choice My neighbor, Dub's Gweg, offered me a diet Dr. Pepper this afternoon and as hard as it was I said No, thank you. Then he had to bring out the big guns and tempt me with a diet Pepsi, and as hard as it was I stood strong. Then I came in the house and started eating and drinking anything I could find to satisfy my craving for a soda. In the last 5 hours I have consumed:
3 glasses of ice water
1 apple
1 chocolate chip Pop Tart
hamburger pie
2 glasses of milk
1 box of sour patch kids
a bite of Creme brulee (gagged, again)
6 Oreos
another glass of milk
a lollipop
a banana
a glass of Tang
a piece of gum
and a York

I still want a Pepsi! I am sick to my stomach and so full I had to take my pants off which would not be bad if they weren't yoga pants but I am about ready to jump in the truck and go to the AM PM just for an ice cold diet Pepsi. I will not however because that would require putting my pants back on I HAVE WILL POWER! I WILL BEAT THIS ADDICTION!
I will focus on the future. On tomorrow. On Breakfast! On chocolate donuts! One habit at a time folks, one habit at a time.

Hey, if I can quit smoking, you can quit pop.

Oh, and if I can put down video games early at night in order to go to bed and get my lazy butt up at 6am to go to the gym, you can quit pop.

Good for you! Some people have no clue how bad that stuff is for you. Just think of the flat tummy that will come easier, the teeth that won't rot out of your mouth, the bloating that will go away, the skin that will look healthier, and all the money you will save! There don't you feel better already;0)

I am so proud of you. I occasionally get off Pepsi too but then go right back on. It kind of ebbs and flows with how much change I can find in the couch cushions. Keep up the good work! Who know you may have just inspired me. said...

My husband is addicted to Pepsi. he craves it. We can't even go down that aisle in the grocery store without him saying how nice it would be to be drinking Pepsi.

He's trying to quit. (Yeah, right!)
