Pat on the back please!

Well friends and family...it has been a week. A week since I have tasted the sweet syrup of my favourite soft drink, Pepsi Max. A week since I have cast it aside for a healthier, more pure alternative. A week since I have chosen my future health above my taste buds (something I don't do very often! lol!).
The day I had my tonsils out was the day I chose to give up all caffeine in my diet. I figured that since I was going to be sick and sore anyway, coming off a five year sweetner and caffeine addiction was going to be easy. Well, it has not been too easy, but it has been worth it! I have already lost a bit of weight and have lost MOST of my desire to crack open a can when I sit down of an evening. I am now a dedicated tea drinker and use a natural sugar alternative called xylitol. No soft drink is allowed in or house again...unless we are having a night on the bourbon...then I might have to reconsider! lol!
