1st Day of Low-Card Diet

About 8 days ago I completly quit caffiene and am now drinking only water. My appetite has dramatically been reduced as well. I feel great compared to what I did before this but now I have the need to feel even better. Today (Feb 1st) the scale said I was 245lbs. I have a primary goal of getting thru the month of February without giving up. I will let my weight do what it will and not worry to much about numbers for now. If I succeed with that I will see where I am at March 1st and build upon it with new goals. For now its all one day at a time.

Day 9 and maybe I am getting cocky....

...but I feel great. Every time I want a soda I drink water, and then more water. Still the only negative side effect I am “suffering” is that my energy at the end of my work day is gone and I feel like I could fall asleep on-the-spot. Today I started a low-card diet so I could have a 2nd thing to do here. I decided that both things could be attempted at the same time becuase they both had to do with my diet and my health. Let’s see. Day #1 I am 245 lbs. I will write more about my goals in that area in the low carb diet area.

Doing great on day 6...

...I am seeing really that my hardest part of overcoming this addiction is learning to deal with when I would habitually drink a soda. On the side effects side of this experiment, I have seem to have had a substantial loss in appeitite. I can eat about a third of what I did just last week. Also, I get extremely tired at the end of my work day. My muscles get sore and I can barely keep my eyes open. I know that will get better but it really is scarey because I drive 35 minutes home from work and would hate to fall asleep while going 70+ MPH on the freeway…. I am very happy with how all has turned out so far. I really hope to continue to see positive changes in the next few weeks.
