Officially Off the sauce!

Today is my first official day off soda! Normally I would've had 2 soda's by now (it's 12:30 p.m.), but so far I've been drinking water all day (and feeling quite like a fish!). I *did* have about 1/2 a Mt. Dew this morning, but it was by far the nastiest thing I've ever tasted. I picked it up yesterday because I'm a sucker for trying new colored sodas. This was a purplish colored Mt. Dew, so I thought 'Hey, cool'. It was Mt. Dew Super Nova, which had Strawberry Melon and ginseng flavors in it. Now, I am a total Mt. Dew addict, but even I couldn't stomach this concoction. YUCK. So I figured it was an appropriate send off to my love affair with soda....

I have to admit I'm nervous. This is probably the 15Th time in the last year I've tried to stop drinking soda -- obviously you can see I have no willpower. Will this time be any different? I sure hope so. SOMETHING has to change. I can't be fat and unhealthy for the rest of my life. Hopefully this time around I'll develop a complete love for water. Let's hope!
