Time to leave diet soda.... again

This has been a few rough months for me.  I have had a lot of trouble getting back to where I need to be with eating and it is showing.  I have been able to get back to running pretty good as seen in my other blog, but the eating has just not gotten back to where it needs to be.

I have known for some time what I needed to do, but have not been able to get myself to do that one simple thing.  I need to stop drinking soda.  Sure, I am drinking diet soda, but I am starting to believe that diet soda is even worse than the real thing.

I have been drinking a lot of soda, but trying to eat right.  I think this is almost impossible.  It doesn't matter how hard I try, I eat too much, and not the right things.

On Monday, April 13th, I made the choice that I was no longer going to ignore the obvious.  I again gave up soda and have also cut out a lot of coffee.  I don't think that coffee is my problem since I drink it black, but I just don't think I need all that extra caffeine.  This also magically makes it easier for me to drink more water.

It has been a week now, and so far it has been so much easier to eat right and eat less.  I am not yet ready to give results, but you can watch my Physics Diet daily weight to see how I am coming along.

Why not give it a try?
