Cold Turkey? Cut Back? To be or not to be? Those are the Questions.

Alrighty! In my quest for a hot bod...I mean to be healthy....I have decided to give up cokes (cokes = soda, pop, etc). Now my question to you is this. Do I go cold turkey or start by cutting back until I give them up entirely?

I've tried cold turkey before and after about 3 days, 100 headaches, and blindness (Okay, that's an exaggeration. I only had about 50 headaches) I end up going crazy and drank a 12 pk in less than an hour.

I think I'm going to go the cutting back route. Right now, I drink about 3 cokes a day. That's if I'm at home or out and about. That's my estimation which means it's more like 5 or 6. So! If I cut down what is the magic number to start with? 5 a week? 3 a week? One a day?

Another question? When do I cut back again? After 2 weeks? One month?

ARG!! Too many questions. This is why I fail! I over think things! Weightloss shouldn't be this hard!

So that's why I need you. What are your suggestions? Tell me about your experiences. I need help!!

Now, where's that Dr. Pepper?

Let's Give it Another Go!

I honestly forgot that I had this blog. I started it to help my lose weight. Has that happened?

What do you think?

My last post was in August and...

Well, there is no "and."

Still at the same weight.

Still wearing the same clothes.

Still depressed if I let myself think about it.

I actually came here today to delete this blog. Then I saw that it had been visited over 300 times!!! What? I am in shock. Are people actually reading this?

So, I'm going to give it another go. I've decided that I will not focus on weight. Sure, I'll post about it, but I'll post about other things too. I have a family blog that is private. This one will not be private. It's open to the world. I will not be using my real name, or anyone's real name.

If you know me, great! Just don't post my name in a comment, but please leave a comment.

Now, I must go back and edit some post and delete some comments. Don't be offended if I delete a comment you made. It's only because my real name is in it.

From now on, you can call me.....
