>Today is the 100th Day of my being off of Coke and all things chocolate. The last day I had either was 30th April.
For this girl who was drinking about a litre of the stuff everyday and eating over 100g of chocolate each day, that’s amazing. Particularly given the fact that the original goal was 3 weeks!!
I did consider that my next goal should be weight related rather than time (specifically I was thinking of “until I’ve reached 3 stone lost”) but now I’m thinking a time based goal might be better. 3 stone would mean I’d doubled my total weight loss and there’s no guarantee how long that will take. I think it might turn into a goal that’s easy to ignore. So I’ve decided that the goal is six months (August is month 4)
I do feel a lot better for it and in ways that surprise me too (as well as those which I expected). But that’s probably a post for another day.
Instead of Coke I drink diet lemonade, water, squash and some other things but those are the main ones. To be honest I should probably drink a lot more water and less of the diet lemonade and squash. Anything is better than all the coke though. I don’t snack as much as I used to now which is great. Although there are definite times when I could do with cutting it down. Mostly I have mini bits of shortbread or flapjack when I do snack. There are now whole days when I don’t snack which is definitely new.
I’m really proud of myself that I’m beating this addiction (I don’t think it’s a good idea to say I’ve beaten it) and how well I’m doing with my weight loss. Here’s to lots more to come (I hope)!
