Hello, My name is Evy

And I have NOT had a Coke in three days!! It is hard, as hard as many other addictions.
You go through the day thinking about it. You get a massive headache, you get the shakes
Because, you know, this is my Caffeine. In the morning right after I get up, at noon with my lunch.
In the afternoon while I am knitting and at dinner. Today was especially hard. I have thought about having one all day long. I resisted though, I even stopped at a fast food place and did not order one. Actually, I made it easy for me. I stopped at one that serves Pepsi. Anyone who loves Coke knows you cannot substitute Pepsi.
I am tired of not feeling good so I had to make some tough decisions. The first is to kick this habit. After I am over this hurdle, I will think about what I eat, because you see I LOVE junk food. I love anything that crunches and is loaded with fat and carbohydrates. I am a carbohydrate junkie! I am smart enough to know and recognize these things, but as a sinful human, I have trouble with the resisting part of it.
Now that I have told you, I will have to be accountable. I have an idea of what I weigh, but not the exact numbers. I will know I am having results when I put on a smaller size pants and my X-Large shirts have some room in them. Maybe by the end of the summer I will be able to post pictures side by side. One of me this winter and an after. We can always hope:)

Oh my gosh - I am still struggling with this. I gave Coke up when Travis had his lap band put in because he can't have any carbonated drinks. It *is hard. It's been nearly a month, but and I have treated myself a couple of times. I didn't even give it up when I was pregnant! I really like True Lemon/True Lime/True Orange added to water. They are little packets of crystallized citrus fruits. You can get them at Haggen in the baking section. It's not as good, but I'm trying :)

What probelm? I have no problem.
-she ays as she sips a Dr. Pepper and contemplates a bag of Dorritos for breakfast.

Good for you! You're a woman on a mission, so I know you can give it up... and eat better to boot!
I did... although I now look at Coke or Dr Pepper as an occasional "treat" in place of dessert.

I know how tough this can be, but in the long run, you'll be better (in health and determination). I pray for your success!!!

The longer you are away from an addiction, the easier it gets. Mine used to be chocolate chip cookies, but they don't temp me anymore!

I'm applauding your desire to get healthy. You CAN do it, Evy! I'll be your cheerleader! :-)

OOOoooooooh Girl!

I hear ya!

This year I didn't even try. But, having said that, and running, and researching healthier meats, and better eating habits, I sat @ BreadCo this AM after running with mi' man, thinking, "Really? Really is this a good idea to drink these all the time??"

I still drank half. (He drank the other half.) So that's at least half-better, right?

Ugh. We'll see what I do this week. Wishing you oooooodles of good luck with it yourself this week!

You can do this! You can do anything, I am so convinced. What a great lady you are! I just sent you an e-mail from Spark People which is a free online program to help people succeed with their goals whether it be weight loss or something else! Check it out. (I am knitting socks, thanks to you! If I can do this, you can give up Coke. I did!) Love you lots!
