A week with no soda. Diet Coke, Diet Pepsi, Diet Sprite...anything. I NEED it, but it slows down our weight loss. Did you know caffine is not a part of our diet? So I am giving everyone a little challenge. Can you go one week without soda? I'm talking (starting tomorrow) Sunday to Sunday. Lets see if we loose more wight without it. It may be enough motivation to stop it all together. So, if you accept...then every night when you get on here report on how your day went...without the soda (or if you cheated. This is just my personal challenge to myself that I thought you ALL could benefit from. Love ya all!!
If you can't love me at my worst you don't deserve me at my best.

Agreed, though it will fairly easy for me since I cut soda out when I started the Fat Smash Diet. I have been having one or two every couple of days and have been enjoying it. I'd like to cut back down though b/c it's not good for you on any level.

Sniff, sniff. I don't think I can do it... If you cut me, do I not bleed Diet Coke??? I'll make an effort. Wink

hmmmmmmmmmmm I don't know on this one, I really don't drink it enough to want to go without it. I was thinking about getting some Diet Rite brand of pop for when I do drink it, there's not artificial sweeteners in it.

I didn't drink soda at all during Induction but I've been drinking it more and more now that I'm in OWL. I will try my best! I just like the clean taste that Diet Pepsi leaves in your mouth...how the bubbles seem to clean out the germies. Ew.

I guess I'll just start having to brush my teeth after lunch! lol!

You know, I just posted on my journal wondering if the diet soda slowed the weight loss. Plus I drink a lot of coffee. Ugh. I don't know if I can do the challenge, but I think I will try to cut back anyway.

And it is not so much that caffeine/artificial sweetener will screw up weight loss attempts with everyone (although the literature seems to indicate it certainly does with some but they don't seem to know who or really how so we can all assume the worst, I guess). No, I was thinking it's not so much about pop being bad for dieting as it is about water being so GOOD for dieting. I was at a plateau since last Friday. I happened to be preparing myself for a hot yoga class, so I drank water water water for 2 days. I basically drank water until I was voiding...well...water (sorry that is TMI). But now, 2 days later I am 2 lbs. lighter and I'm fully hydrated! If only I could bottle the difference in my energy level! Alas, this unintended experiment leaves me convinced that water is a very powerful gift to the diet.

Ok...so I know that I am the one who started this...but I'm an adict. I usually have like 3 a day. So today, to start I only had one. I NEVER drink it when I'm at home, but I work at Steak N Shake, and I ALWAYS have one at work. So today I had one with dinner, and the rest of the day I had a bottle of water...Sorry...maybe tomorrow Sad

We forgive you! I was thinking of sodas when the challenge was issued, not neccessarily caffeine. I had coffee today so it seems I messed up as well.

I had only water today Very Happy But not nearly enough. I should drink some more before I get to sleep.

Edit: I had food too! But the only thing I had to drink was water. I didn't mean to confuse anyone Laughing

I had bad headaches for 2 days when I quit drinking Diet Coke for my detox phase. I feel your pain, hope it's not as bad tomorrow for you.
I haven't had any diet coke or coffee! Good luck tomorrow.
