Bye Bye Bubbly.

No, I don't mean champagne.
I'm talking about sweet, deliciously carbonated soda.

Starting yesterday, I have decided that I am giving up soda for one month (and possibly longer if I see that I'm feeling better and having extra positive results).

I'm really going to miss Diet Coke, Root Beer and Ginger Ale.

Omg, I just had the sudden realization that I won't be able to have root beer floats anymore!  I think that will be the hardest part.

Why give up soda?

- Stains teeth.
- Dehydrates you.
- Can make you bloated.
- Too much unnecessary sugar. 
- Toxins from artificial sweeteners.
- Can lead to weight gain. 

Isn't it strange how purposefully telling yourself that you can't have or do something kind of makes you want it more?  Anyway, I will allow myself to have soda again on October 13th, if I choose to. 

Wish me luck!  


  1. You can do it! I rarely drink soda anymore and it hasn't been near the loss I thought it would be.

  2. Thanks for the support! So far, so good. Now if I had to give up sweets... I'd have a HUGE problem with that.
