NaBloPoMo – Day 11

8 WEEKS!  That is how long it has been since I’ve had any soda.  Crazy!

I started going soda-free 8 weeks ago to 1) see if I could, 2) cut out calories, and 3) soda is expensive! And now it been the equivalent to 2 months and I’m still going.

That isn’t to say that I haven’t had a couple moments when I’ve thought it would be nice to have a soda.  Just one single soda.  What would one soda hurt?  I’ve stopped myself by thinking about how good it feels to be able to say that I have made it so many weeks without soda.  Not everyone is able to say that.  I feel like a champion having made it 8 weeks now and I want to be able to continue to grow that number of weeks.

I’m sure at some point I may have a soda again. Maybe one here or there.  But at this point I am feeling empowered by the control I have over what I’m putting (or, in this case, not putting) in my body.  While I will admit that I’m interested to see how it’ll taste after being without the sweetness for so long, I’m not willing to try it just yet.

    That’s great! I once managed to cut down to one single Diet Coke per week, but that’s about the best I could do.
