Ok, So Goodbye, Old Friends....

My personal descent into hell starts today, as I am no longer allowing myself carbonated beverages (or as I call them, joy and love) in an attempt to live a healthier 2011 and beyond. Other no-no's include any place with a drive through (except Starbucks, but I RARELY go through the drive through at SC anyway) and limiting pizza to store bought frozen mini pizzas (no more Papa John's).
If any of you have belief in a higher power, you may want to pray to him or her for Babaloo's safety over the next few days. He's surprisingly fast when a dish is being thrown at him after asking a stupid question like, "You wanna watch TV?"

Honestly, if you can get past the first week or week and a half, you won't miss soda for the most part. For me, it's been just over three years since my last one. I've stopped having dreams where I drink soda, glorious soda. For a while I was dreaming about it almost weekly.

Good luck! I'm praying for Babaloo's health and safety during your adjustment period!

Good luck Darlin! You will do fine! Don't think of it as "giving something up".. that sounds negative. Just think of it as "trying something different"!

Also, don't forget about homemade pizza.. YUM! Fast and easy and good for you because you can control what you put on it :) I don't make my own dough.. I'm not that good! Sometimes I buy those Boboli crusts and I love pizza on a tortilla! My kids love it when I buy that Jiffy pizza mix and we all make our own pizzas..

You can do it!

Oh and PS.. wanna hear something really super sad? I am thinking of cutting waaaaaay back on my alcohol consumption. *sob* I find that my weight just sticks and doesn't budge at all when I drink. DAMNIT!
