Being "INTENTIONAL"....day #10 ...NO diet soda..update

Monday, January 17, 2011


I really feel VERY good about being able to finally kick the diet coke habit.

I know that it has only been 10 days but I truly have no desire to have any.

I also am aware that there may be times when I am tempted.... but just like a dope junkie or an alcoholic....I will treat my diet coke addiction in the same way. HMMMMMMMMM I wonder if there is a "HELP" line I can call and talk to a sponsor....LOL

Another bonus...I am paying myself $1 for every day that I am " diet coke free". I also do the same with "INTENTIONAL" exercize and between the 2..... I have saved $20 to date. My goal is to lose my last 11# by mid-May and to go shopping for new clothes with the money I have saved and certainly have earned.

Why mid-May? I have a 2 day TOPS convention (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) May 20th and it will be almost like a class reunion. I just rejoined TOPS again last June with an extra 10# to lose and I want them "gone" by the time the TOPS weekend will be here.

I want to look and feel my best and this is happening one day at a time...one pound gone at a time and one less diet coke at a time.

BTW...if you want more insight on "ASPERTAME"....just google...92 side affects of aspertame......very enlightening.

    You are doing great there, keep it up. After a while you lose the taste completely. I never did like diet soda so it was cold turkey. I just drank water with lemon or lime in it. I do love iced tea, so I have to watch how much of that I drink but I always drink unsweetened.

    Good for you on making it so far!!! May is not far away and you'll have the new clothes before you know it. Plus the pounds lost will be an added bonus.

    Good for you kicking the habit, Callie. That was a tough one, I know. My hubby has the Diet Coke habit.

    Great idea rewarding yourself with cash! I may have to do that. I see a shopping spree in our futures!

    You TOPS Convention is great motivation to stay on plan. You can do it and WILL!

    You're doing great. So proud of you!
