Well it's almost 2 weeks..

since I had any coke (coca cola that is). Today is 13 days without it! Well coke or pepsi (I just prefer coke). Pop was my way of getting caffeine. Many days I desperately want it but I'm staying strong. Mostly just thinking of all the money I am saving (granted we are going through a lot more juice and milk though!) helps the most.

I am also happy to say we have not eaten out (well except my mom treating at Adventures on Wonderland) for at least the month of March (actually I can't remember the last time we ate out but I know for sure we haven't for March). For those who know our family - we have a bad habit of eating out too much. The kids haven't even seemed to miss McDonald's. I haven't either really.

I would like to be able to say that not drinking coke (or pretty much pop in general...had maybe 3 non-caffeinated pop since I quit) and eating out that I've lost weight but I haven't been so lucky there.

Good for you Sylvia! I think that it is awesome that you had made the decision to do this. I know that it is difficult. However, look at how far you have come! Keep up the great work! Also, I think that it is great that you had stopped from eating out so much. It is amazing how much we can spend when we eat out isn't it? That is one thing that we have stopped too. There is no reason we need to eat out every week. Now, it is a treat and not so much a weekly thing for us!
