I've been soda free since January 1 but Tuesday I had such a bad headache and nothing was helping so I had 10 oz dr pepper. Tried to get diet but the machine was out. Don't beat yourself up about it. Just allow for it in your calorie budget for the day and try not to make it a habit

Don't!  Don't look at it as cheating.  That makes it sounds like you are on a diet, and remember being healthy means NOT dieting.  Cutting out soft drinks is not an easy thing to do.  It took me a good three months before I was able to do it.  
    However, part of losing weight is your mentality.  When you say something like "treating myself to ____" a food you know is bad for you, it's a bad habit to get in to.  Instead treat yourself to something like a red box rental you want (hey, same price as a soft drink in general) or a new book.  Something not food, basically.   

Also, don't relaly thinking of it as cutting "out" drinks.  Keep the mentality of "I'm adding in healthy food."  You'll eventually find that it is easier to stay away from soft drinks when you don't feel like you are missing out.  You see the mentality of "cutting out" is very negative.
   But if you add in healthy stuff, over time the bad stuff just doesn't have room.  Stay positive, and you'll find yourself having an easier time!
