Wednesday, when I found out I was pregnant. I am so proud of myself! I have been trying to kick this habit for ages now. I was drinking two cans of diet soda a day. I really don't want my baby to have all that caffeine and artificial 'sugar' so I am going to remain strong for little papoose :)

If you can make it through pregnancy you can make it after too! That's how I gave up smoking. I stopped drinking soda when I was 18. I remember it being really hard.

Good for you! I have been trying to quit for a year now. I know if I had one a day, I would slip and drink more! It is hard but I know that it will be worth it :)

Congratulations.

I haven't had a soda since November 8 2009. Well I had a flat soda the other day per drs orders (liquid diet with my lapband, carbonation is a no no) and honestly I can say I dont crave it anymore!


Congrats :D

That is what I am hoping. It has been a thorn in my side for a long time now. It's time to give it up.

You will probably notice more energy within about a week (even being in the first stages of pregnancy). Soda is a once in awhile thing for me now.
