Healthier than soda, better tasting than water?

My weakness is soda. If my choices are soda and water, i will most often choose a soda. But I know this is not contributing to my weight loss efforts. So, what do you ladies drink?

Flavored sparkling water. It's my 'treat'.

I'd say to try carbonated water with a squeeze of lemon.  Is it the sweetness, or the carbonation?

You could add a splash of juice to carbonated water, too, I suppose, but try to wean yourself off of that if you do that.

I put a lemon wedge in my water. Also I'm a huge fan of unsweetened tea. Once in a while I'll squeeze some orange or lemon into it to add a little flavor?

I put lemons and/or limes in my water. I have reusable water bottles that I fill up so I know I'm drinking the amount I'm supposed to.

I used to drink sparking water with a couple of ounces of grape juice at first as my 'soda'. I did that 2 times a day for about 3 months then weaned off to just plain sparking water or with a twist of lime or a peice of pineapple tossed in. It's very yummy and I don't miss soda at all!
