Default Small achievement....

...but a big thing in my little world. I've gone a month (35 days to be exact) without any soda!! Not a sip. I know this is silly to post, especially in comparrison to all the great weight-loss mini goals but this is really a major thing for me as I was addicted to Coke and Dr Pepper. I didn't go a day without soda, many cans of it, for years and thought I cld never break the habit - but it looks like I'm doing it! I really can't believe it. I now have some days where I don't even think about the stuff. That's amazing to me. I'm really looking forward to when I don't feel any temptation whatsoever.

Thanks for hearing me =)

Thats fantastic!! Its all about small steps, but i think that is a huge Huge acheivement!! I love my diet coke, and do have a few cans each week, not every day, but allow myself 2-3 cans on the weekend. I dont think I could go that long without any soda!! WTG!!

I don't think this is a small accomplishment at all, because you've made a fundamental habit change. This is an excellent achievement for your overall health too--not just weight, but it affects how much sodium and (maybe) caffeine you're getting. Plus it's a great one for your dental health too!

Aww thank you SO much!!! Ya know, you're right I shld be proud of myself because not only was it very difficult to do but it's a huge step for me health-wise.

I WILL be a non-soda drinker! Maybe I already am?! Yes yes.

Congratulations on your achievement of not drinking soda. I wish I could do the same I have managed to cut down but I have not cut it down it out completely. I am on about 1/2 to 1 can a day. I like the caffeine free and sugar free variety of coke.

Well done keep up the good work.

WooOT! Congrats sweetie! I'm trying to cut back on soda too. I'm doing pretty good, only allowing me some during TOM in place of sweets.
