Caffeine & Soda Free

Posted: July 14, 2010 in everything else

Thanks for the comments after last month’s post.  I was shocked that anyone was still actually checking this old thing out every now and then.

Now the good news.

For last 6 weeks, I have consumed no soda, no tea, and no caffeine.  Yes, that’s right.  Caffeine, soda, and tea free for 6 weeks.  I have been a Crystal Light fiend.  Or, more specifically, a Great Value Walmart brand of Crystal Light fiend.  Fruit punch and lemonade keep me going.

The better news.

Because of this purge, I have now lost anywhere from 10 – 12 pounds in the last 6 weeks, depending on what time of day I weight myself.

I’ve tried this before with some success, but for the first time I feel like I might actually be “over the hump”.  The cravings are very mild, and I haven’t really been tempted to cheat.  I’ll keep you updated.

    Congrats! I try a few times a year to go cold turkey from my morning cup of coffee. It’s harder than it sounds.

    I tried that a while back and made the mistake of drinking juice, and gained weight.
    One day I will be ready to drop caffeine, but until then…

    Good luck Jason!

    I just noticed you are back! How exciting! I’ve missed reading your witty posts. I’ve been thinking about joining Soda’s Anonymous. I’m pretty sure it would also help me save a chunk of change. Will you be my sponsor? (You may have to put Ron on speed dial so you can call him and tell him to run save the children.)
