Last week when I started this, I weighed 187.6, today I way 180.8. I have lost 6.8 pounds by just giving up Mountain Dew. And yes, I have not had one. I will be honest though, it is extremely difficult.
I have had worse withdrawals with this than with giving up smoking. At work has been the hardest. I go to grab a drink and my immediate reaction is to go for the soda, but then I stop myself and have water.
I posted the question on facebook, asking everyone what I could drink instead. Apparently the only drink out there aside from soda is some form of tea. I am not a huge tea fan. I will keep searching though.
I knew this would not be easy, but seeing the results so quickly has helped encourage me. I will keep this up.
