Day 365!!! !!!!! no sodas, not even an ounce.
Monday, August 22, 2011
I am very proudly celebrating today, as it marks an entire years since I've drank a soda.
I used to drink sodas like water...and I've always drank plenty of water, averaging 16-24 glasses daily.. I stopped 365 days ago, and haven't had one since. I thank God, Sparkpeople- and a great deal of special thanks to my eight year old son, Kevin. ( I had originally decided to "take a break" from sodas for 41 days to break previous personal record. Then I decided to go to 50 days. On day 48, I exclaimed to my (then) 7yo that I was almost at 50. Instead of congratulating me, he innocently pointed out that if I could do 50, then I could do 100! NOW, it's 365 days later!)
I'm celebrating this BATTLE, but the war isn't over. I still have a long road to go toward mastering my diabetes, obesity, anxiety, and chronic pains, and lack og sleep. BUT, on THIS day, I truly am proud for the victory over sodas. I AM what I eat and drink, and I am NO LONGER soda. Give me some LOVE, Sparkfriends....And to each of you who are struggling to overcome sodas, YOU CAN DO IT! Our children are SPARKpeople, too!
