Cutting out Soda [Zero to Hero]

So going from Zero to Hero started off at a stalemate. I said I was going to try and lose weight during the holiday season. That goal wasn’t reached but I did end up maintaining my weight throughout the biggest eating season. So I have to consider that a small, moral victory. Going forward, it’s time to make some changes.

The first change I’m attempting to to cut out drinking soda pop. This might seem like a no-brainer for someone trying to lose weight, but you obviously don’t know how big a part of my life Diet Coke is (and has been). You’d think I’d be okay drinking diet soda, but it looks like it’s just as bad as the sweet, sweet high-fructose corn syrup stuff. Figures.

So I’m going from, I don’t know, five or six cans of Diet Coke (a day) to nothing. Last week I weaned myself down to two cans. This week I’m going to try for one. We’ll see how that goes, but I think I’ll be reaping the rewards in no time.


  1. Ouch, DC is my biggest vice. I have cut back to 1 20oz a day, but need to get off that. Good Luck!

  2. It’s been rough so far. I’ve “cut back” to 2 20 ouncers a day, but I did that two weeks ago. Still have cut back to just one yet. Give it some time…
