It's going pretty good for me with the soda. I wanted one today but I refused to go out with money to buy it. I went in the store to get my meds and that was it. I wanted something but that was not it. it's nice to have these little things to root me on. Are you working on cutting down on anything? Good luck if you are.

That is good. It can be hard when you are trying to cut things out.

I use to drink about 6 sodas, every day! Now, I don't drink it any longer. Also, I drank coffee all day long. Now, I have one cup, that's all. I feel ten times better, at this time:) I'm glad you're able to cut out the soda, too.

@sharon6345 Carbonated beverages cause us to retain fluids and swell up. I stopped drinking them and the swelling is gone.

Congratulations on that, it is wonderful! They say that giving up soda for those who drink it often is quite difficult. I never drank enough to know about that, but I believe it. I am working on cutting back on my sugar and flour intake. Its a challenge, but I'm managing a little better every week.

Only soda I've had this year is what ginger ale I had for the first week I was sick with the flu last month. And I hated it. Never been big on soda. Though like orange here and there.

@Hannihar I am so so happy to hear that. Have you been having any headaches of any kind? If not it will be better for you. when I gave up pepsi and coffee in the past the head pain was so bad I had to go back on them. Now I am not having that issue so I am glad.

I think that is great. I should probably do the same. I am not a crazy soda drinker..my roommate is addicted to it. He drinks about a liter of diet pepsi per day..I do have a glass or two or a can of soda just about every day though.
