Default My NSV

I have a huge problem with drinking my calories away anf for the past week I have switched to mostly water and some crystal light and my "bloated" look is starting to go away. This probably seems silly but it makes me feel really good!

WTG, that is a huge accomplishment. I had the habit of drinking 6 regular 20 oz. bottle of Mt. Dew a day. That was hard to break. With that many empty calories, I would never have lost any weight. Great NSV.

I had a GREAT love affair with Diet Dr. Pepper going. In order to stop I had to forbid it in my house...and after about 3 days my fingers felt loose. I lost my "bloated" look too. This is a big NSV. You go, girl!

Congrats! I went through a bad phase of weaning myself off Diet Coke and coffee (I used the caffeinated kind of green tea to do it) but after it was done, the same thing happened. Soon you'll totally love and crave water!

I think that is great!
You are better than me, I don't think I could give up my diet coke completely!

I've given up everything but water, tea, juice, and the occasional coffee. Feels awesome, doesn't it?

It's been a year ago that I totally gave up coke (regular & diet) - it wasn't easy but now I don't miss them at all!

Awsome..Water is really all I drink since I started my diet. I'll have a glass of wine maybe once a week or a glass of diet green tea...but it's usally water. I actually dont crave anything else.

I've never had a problem with Diet Coke bloating me. I wonder if its because I now dring the caffeine free variety. or maybe just an immunity after so many years on the stuff. Congratulations on the lack of bloat!!!
