Default I did it!!!

One of my biggest hurdles in my journey has been giving up and learning to live without my weakness!!
Southern style, good ole, Sweet Tea!!!
I Mean I was bad off, drinking it constantly.. all day everyday!

So Ive been on a water diet, some diet drinks but mostly water!!
Well I like to buy those flavor packets from time to time for my water just to spice my life up lol
A friend recommended I try Lipton's sweet tea on the go... 0 calories and such, just flavoring basically and sweetner!
and BAM~!
Tastes just like mom made it!
I felt soooooo guilty during that entire tea flavored bottle of water because i felt like I was breaking my diet drinking sweet tea!
I'm so happy! It makes it so much easier!

I'm happy you found something that works! I do not like water and when I tell you, crystal light is a life saver!! I still make myself drink straight up water, but man having a GREAT option is the bee's knees no doubt! I'm a soda guy and having an alternative is imperative...otherwise i'd be going through at least 2 liters of Pepsi a day...smh

That is fabulous!! Sweet tea is so dangerously delicious that you need to pat yourself on the back a good hour for giving it up!
Another thing I like (it's fairly new) is Mio water enhancer? I don't know if they have it in your area but it's pretty much zero everything except <1 g carb <1 g sugar and another friend is in agreement when we say it tastes like Kool Aid.
Good job!!

The day they start making water enhancers that taste like Pepsi, I'll buy stock!!!

Mio is my absolute new favorite thing! I need to take a picture of my desk drawer at work.. it's humorous really.. There are 3 bottles of Mio, a box of Crystal light packets, and a box of lipton tea on the go.... all in the corner of my drawer. I love it!!! I usually try to drink straight water, but those make it sooo much easier!
and you're SO right, just like koolaid!!! Strawberry Melon=Fave!!!

Congrats on giving up the sweet tea!

I've got 4-5 flavors of crystal light packets in my drawer at work at any given time, and at home there's always a pitcher in the fridge. I make sure I'm drinking more plain water than crystal light, but I just freaking love the stuff, lol.

I've gotta try that Mio, I keep hearing everyone rave about it.

Congrats on making better choices! Anytime we can make a choice that is better for us I see as a non-scale victory!

I use the water enhancer and love the Mio, it travels well but favorite drink is hot tea -- even in 104 Texas heat!

mhill...sounds like we have alot in common. I too was addicted to sweet tea. All I dring now is water as well. On occasion maybe tea w/ splenda or diet coke/pepsi...but these are rarely...like maybe 1 drink every 2 weeks. Strictly water for me! I had to choke it down at first, but now I am so used to it it is like second nature to reach for water! I havent seen or heard of the Lipton's tea on the go, but if it tastes like my Mom's I want some! LOL!

I love finding someone who I have things in common with! and Yes, I told my mom she has a run for her money now lol I was the same way with water and I try to only use the water enhancers on occasion, and drink straight water more often! Now when I drink anything else it tastes funny! I accidentally picked up my bf's sonic cup instead of mine last night with sweet tea in it and I almost spit it out! It was SOOOO Sweet my mouth didn't like it! That makes me happy as well! lol I've adjusted to water!

I just read this whole thread hoping that I would figure out eventually what sweet tea is haha. I've seen it mentioned before in other posts...is it just like sweetened iced tea?
