I had to giggle (OK, chuckle) the other day as I met with my dietitian for the first time and she gingerly "discussed" my diet coke consumption. ( I know. ) Unfortunately, this has always been my vice...as long as I had a diet coke in hand the world would go around. So, to learn that this very vice may be inhibiting my weight loss was brutal. Yes, brutal folks.
I'm not perfect. No, I've never claimed to be. I've given other things up in my life, but my diet coke has been another story. Thankfully, I've "controlled" my ridiculous behavior down to no more than 2 cans a day, but honestly 2 is probably 2 too many. So, what do I do? Give up my vice all together or cut it down to one can a day? I don't even want to answer this question.
I find myself torn. There was a time when I didn't exercise or watch what I ate, but my life has changed. I still struggle sometimes with the eating...especially on the weekend. (Some weekends I swear it is a flood gate of bad foods!) But, I'm making progress and giving up diet coke would be just one more step in the right direction. Can I do it? I don't know.
I have lots of faithful readers and have even contemplated starting a food diary on the sidebar of blog. Is that odd, please tell me? Honestly, I know if I had to write it down in front of my readers that maybe it would help me understand my eating habits and keep me accountable. So, if you have a minute...leave me a comment and let me know if I should give-up my beloved diet coke and start a food diary sidebar.
Until then...I write these words while sipping on my second diet coke of the day. (Literally.)
