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?

  1. Hang in there Tim!! Its very much a daily battle. I started running approximately 10 years ago with much of the same goals... and results.

    My weight was around 237 when I began. I am a teacher and coach and started finding it difficult to run up and down the basketball court with the kids.

    The weight has been as low as 178 but will easily bust it back up over 200 pds unless I stay on it.

    Currently, I'm in an "in between" stage. Not real good, not real bad. Definately not where I want to be. New blogger here, enjoyed your writing.

    Keep working at it.

  2. Good luck and keep up the good work. Thanks for the kind words!
