One word....badly..lol. I have given up my Mountain Dew pop have done good there by replacing it with teas. Green tea, flavored teas and regular. On the food front not so good at all. It is hard going from eating everything you want to eating foods just from a limited list. My Husband also doing badly he vowed to quit smoking seems he is smoking more trying to get those last few puffs in..I guess. I am going to be recommiting though on the 10th of January hopefully I can succeed this time and stay on longer then 2 days..Well,have a good day and I hope that you can stick to your reslolutions also.

Yes that is true..lol.. I had to go to teas because after not drinking any caffeine for a few days..my hubby was about to thump me in the head and I would get the awfulest migraines that last for days. So teas has helped that some. My husbands boss quit smoking and he was a chain smoker but he is using something to help his cravings. My hubby tried cold turkey since we couldn't afford the patches. He tried by using candy but it hasn't helped much and two grouchy people in a house is not fun..My step-dad quit smoking last year cold turkey becuase he had to have a hip replacement surgery and Doc said he couldn't as long as he smoked. He gained about 70 pounds in 6 months and him and my mom fought constantly about every little thing. They still fight..got to be a habit..I just wish my husband would stop smoking for me and his health.

You gave up Diet Coke. I could never do that. I am trying to loose weight and I have not lost much but I am eating right and exercising. Im trying to make a life changes that will get me through forever instead of the normal crash diets I have been doing.

You know what I find amazing, is that I am losing weight now I have given up the diet coke. I read an article a while ago about how diet coke makes you hungrier. Your body prepares for a sugar rush that never arrives so it craves more sugar. Im drinking a lot of water to help through the withdrawals but really, its been easier than I imagined it would be.
