No Soda?

I went all day yesterday with out my Dr. Pepper. I’ve switched to the caffeine-free stuff because I can’t sleep very well if I have caffeine late in the day and I only drink my Dr. P around dinner-time. Anyway, yesterday, I didn’t even think about it. I just had my water and a cup of hot tea (also de-caf). I didn’t realize until this morning that I hadn’t even had the craving for one. Yay! I’m glad to be getting rid of that craving. Last year when I went on a cruise with my Dad (father-daughter thing, it was a lot of fun) and there was no Dr. Pepper anywhere once we were in Miami and on the ship, I had some bad cravings and it was kind of hard on me, but I made it through. That’s when I decided to try and cut it out because I didn’t like the feeling of needing something like that. I’ve gotten down to only one a day and some days I’ve resisted and gone without it a day, but I always felt the cravings those days. Yesterday was a milestone in that I didn’t have that craving. I didn’t even think about it. Woohoo! Progress is being made.

Now, to get me to drink more juice.

  1. I’m a DR. PEPPER nut, too!!

    I think it’s my favorite taste of anything I’ve ever had. Mmmmm. It’s too bad it’s not GOOD for me. I’d be the healthiest gal on earth if that were the perfect food. hee hee.

    Good job on cutting back. It’s not easy to do. I’m down to just one a week or less. Lately I’ve been having some diet Dr. Pepper instead. It’s just as bad for me, but in a different way because of the aspartame.

    Have a good day!
