>100 Days!

>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)!
