Non Scale Victory ~ Diet Coke Free!
Thursday, May 03, 2012
So today has been two days since I’ve been without Diet Coke and I don’t have a headache. How did I do this? Well, I weaned myself off of course!
A few weeks ago, it was brought to my attention that Diet Coke had become an addiction for me. I was easily drinking the equivalent of a 2L bottle a day. Now, Diet Coke is not necessarily bad for you, but in that amount it cannot be good for you! So, I started only drinking a 20oz bottle a day and replaced the rest with water. When I started to notice that I was not drinking the whole bottle, I went to a normal size can of Diet Coke, once a day. And then, a couple of weeks ago I bought an 8-pack thing of Diet Coke that had smaller size cans. I finished that two days ago. I was going to ask my husband to bring a Diet Coke for me when he was on his way home, but I decided to wait and see if I got a headache from no caffeine! I am so excited to say that I do not have that dreaded caffeine headache!
I’m going grocery shopping tomorrow, but I’m not sure if I will pick up Diet Coke or not. I love the taste of it, but I no longer need it. I have grown accustomed, and maybe even have developed a love relationship with water. If someone would have told me last year that in 2012 I would no longer be drinking Diet Coke but only water, I would have laughed in their faces!
