Something I never thought I'd admit....

But I actually REALLY like diet coke!! Who'd have thought that me, Ms. 5 Mt. Dew a day drinker, would ever love Diet Coke. But it's true... I started drinking them last week, and now I'm hooked. I prefer them so much more over regular coke. My parent's convinced me today that it was okay to drink *one* Coke, and that it wouldn't hurt my diet.

Ughhh... It tasted like syrup!! How did I ever drink them before??

I've been so proud of myself that for the past week, I've been able to stick strongly to my diet. No fast food, no junk food, no soda, no snacks. I've been SUPER disciplined. I've even acquired a taste for protein bars!

I know it's only been a week, but I'm going through this week by week... Soon the weeks will add up, and then the months will add up and before you know it, I'll reach my goal -- losing 50 lbs by my 30th birthday on July 19th. I know it's a steep goal, but I KNOW if I'm determined and work my ass off, I CAN do it!!!

You can do it! I have not had anything to drink except water since Thursday! It is getting easier, but I almost broke down and got a Pepsi today. I didn't and I feel pretty good about that:)

Work that ass off.. LITERALLY!!!! You CAN do it Michelle!!!!!! Just remember, don't ban yourself from the things you love, otherwise your diet won't work. Allow yourself a indulging moment each week, but don't overdo it. One soda, or one candy bar, but the next day get right back on track!!!!!

You have more will power than I have right now!!!!!!

Good Luck, I am working on my weight too, but taking it slowly and allowing myself one night dinner out eating what I want and one candy bar a week!!!
Just keep up the good work.
