      Crap! Is Pepsi One bad too?! I thought I was being good with one calorie.

      Good job though Jen. Any addiction is troubling! I need to stop biting my nails asap. Such a gross habit but it's so HARD- it's totally a nervous/bored habit.

        This is one of my New Year's resolutions. I know it's gross, but I seriously must have at least 6-8 per day (down from 12+ per day....eww!). I've tried to quit, but I get such horrible headaches. I don't like coffee or tea, so diet coke is my caffeine. Mike keeps telling me I'll need to quit when we're TTC, so I should start now; it's just so damn hard.

          Holy crap Lizz - that's a lot of DC!! Weaning yourself off of caffeine is tough. What if you cut back gradually? Kind of a planned wind down. At this rate if you go cold turkey, you might lose it!

            I know, I'm going to seriously try to cut back. I'm trying to quit smoking too, so the way I keep rationalizing it is one thing at a time (and obviously the diet coke is the lesser of my 2 evils).

              I was probably about that bad with my DC too! I went cold turkey off caffeine (yes, I ditched the coffee too) and feel so much better! I'm less bloated, I drink only water, and I just feel better for it. I've been off a little longer than Jen and I highly recommend it if you are trying to lose weight. Also, you'll find you're much more hydrated, which will help with photos :)

                      Wow Jen, I cannot believe it's been 3 months. I remember when you first made that commitment to stop, that seems like it was just around the corner! Congratulations for sticking with it and doing something great for yourself!
