I learned a lesson yesterday in my weight loss journey. I can no longer have diet causes something in my body or brain that makes me want to eat sweets....I cut way back last week and then on the weekend I had a couple and it was like I couldn't stop! It is now all out of my house and it is going to stay that way. If I want to have one it will be a real one from now on, it doesn't seem to have the same effect. It was like it took control over what I was eating. Last week I ate very clean and felt great, this week I was looking for snack foods all the time. I wanted chocolate and chips and just sugary stuff in general. I have been told many times that it's not good for me and I knew it wasn't great but I felt like I needed it, now I know that I don't. Big lesson for me.

I did not get in any activity - I think this is also linked to the diet pop, it was like it stole my energy or motivation. I can't remember if I mentioned that I am changing my WI until the end of the year to Thursday - that means WI tomorrow and I am a little nervous after my eating this week. it hasn't been perfect and my WI is moved up from Saturday. Fingers crossed that it isn't terrible =S

I just want to say congratulations to Darci and her husband, I can't wait to read all about the changes in their lives!


  1. I stopped buying pop to have in the house. Every once in a while we have some, but not nearly as often as we used to. I feel a lot better when I don't drink it!

  2. I have read so many articles about drinking diet pop and craving sweets. I stopped drinking it about 2 months ago and I feel so much better and so much more in control of my cravings.

  3. My friend had to do the same thing re: Diet Pepsi!

  4. it's amazing how when you start listening to your body ques you fiqure things out like this! Good work getting down to the root cause of the problem.
    I'm so excited for Darci!

  5. Aha!! I think I have the same problem! I had a diet coke yesterday, and I very rarely have them anymore. The rest of the day was a huge battle to stay under my calories! Thanks for posting this, I never even thought about it!
