Default Hmm, no more juice for me!

Let me start by saying that I LOVE juice, especially apple juice. I used to drink about a gallon of it per week. When I started WW in August I quit drinking it because I wasn't willing to spend the points on it. I do still purchase juice for DH and the kiddos, however. This morning as I was making my oatmeal and getting the milk out of the fridge I saw the bottle of juice and looked at the label. I calculated that I could have 1/2 cup for 1 point, and thought yeah, that sounds good. Well, I took that first drink and didn't finish it. It was so sweet and icky that it tasted gross to me! I guess now I'll no longer look in the fridge and think boy that apple juice looks good!

Kelly,

I was the same way with Dr. Pepper (granted, not has "healthy" for you as juice..haha). I started having a heart murmer and depression about 5 months ago... and so I swore off any caffeine at all (other than chocolate every now and then). I must say I'm proud because I haven't had any caffeine since last July. We were having a game night the other night and I took a sip of my husband Dr. Pepper and it tasted like straight sugary syrup. Amazing how our bodies and our taste buds get so used to a certain flavor... but when we're away from that flavor and taste it again - it's a whole new taste. So, I'm not even tempted by those kinds of drinks. I'm a milk and water girl. Every now and then I'll have a cup of Sierra Mist (at game nights).... but even that's no caffeine.

Kelly, that is GREAT!!! Isn't it amazing what we once thought we couldn't live without now has ZERO appeal? Not to sound over dramatic but this stuff is really and truly life-altering.

I don't like juice for that reason.

Also, I only really ever drink water and so when I order a diet coke at restaurants, half the time I think that they have given me regular coke because I am not used to the sweetness......... it tastes like the full on calorie syrup **** to me......

When I'm feeling sick, sometimes I'll drink orange juice. I have to water it down a lot though.

I have to water down my juice as well. It's just too sweet.

My big thing (as of 1 1/2 weeks ago!) was approximately 6 cups of coffee a day with about 4 tablespoons...yes, tablespoons...of sugar and creamer in each cup. I was so embarrased by this 'habit' that I'd try to sneak the sugar into my coffee when I was out in public. I'm happy to say that its now been 4 days since I've used any sugar at all...and I'm down to 1 cup of coffee in the mornings with Splenda and fat free half-and-half. Its nice to think that sugar might not taste good at all to me again one day.

Funny how our tastes really do change! Why is this, does any one know?

I agree, our tastes really do change. While the idea of mixing water and juice together sounds like a good plan, after the way it tasted this morning I'm not even tempted to do that! My beverages typically consist of tons of water and a little bit of milk each day. If we're dining out often times I'll mix lemon and sweet 'n low with my water for a quick lemonade, but that's about it. I haven't had a glass of soda since August, and you know, I don't miss it! I was never a diet soda fan, always left a nasty taste in my mouth. New Years Eve I did have a drink, but mixed it with Sprite Zero. I think if I do at some point decide to drink some soda, it will be that....no calories, no caffiene, and there wasn't an aftertaste that I noticed! OK, the rum that was mixed in MIGHT have eliminated the aftertaste....hehehe

I've never been a juice person, it always tasted that way to me. I'm glad you broke the habit and no longer crave it. I drink a tiny can of v8 each morning just to get another serving of veggies in.
