They tried to make me go to rehab, but I said no, no, no!

The good news is that the withdrawl headaches are gone! I have been clean for exactly 7 days. The cravings are also down and I have been drinking lots of water. Have I mentioned that I don't really like water? But that's what I have been having. Plain old filtered water from my tap. No add ins either. No lemon or CrystalLite. No bottled water either, because #1, I refuse to spend money on water (unless I'm out & have no choice) and #2 because you get tap water anyway!

Believe it or not, the purest best tasting water we ever had was in Martinique in the French Antilles. People were filling up bottles from a spring on the side of the road. Our driver pulled over to give us a taste. At first I was hesitant, I mean this was literally water that was spurting out from a pipe on the side of the road. For all I knew, it was a sewer line! Michele, our driver told us that the water came from the same spring that they bottled the water sold in their stores. We filled up our empty Zephyrhills bottles (probably tap too) & tried it. The water was crystal clear, crisp & refreshing. Plus I didn't have to pay $1 plus for a small bottle. Just some useless information for ya'll! :)

Back to my original post. The Diet Coke thing is going well. The diet thing is ok as well. Except for the 3 saboteurs in this house. I need to literally go away, alone, for a few months in order to lose weight. Something like the Bigget Loser, without my family tempting me all the time! Plus a personal trainer wouldn't hurt either. I just get sooo mad that they all, especially Danny, do not try to help. It's not as if he doesn't need too lose more than a few pounds himself! It's been a huge point of contention in this house for the past week. I have to go away when they sit down to dinner because my will power is zero. I have been having dinner by myself because they will not eat what I eat. And I can't be around what they eat.

OH, I feel your pain! I'm addicted to Diet Coke, too, and whenever I try to cut it out, I'm a total bi-atch!!

I have no willpower, either... I want to lose a few pounds, but it's really hard with all the ice cream places open for the summer! I can't pass them up!!

It must be hard when you're the only one on a restricted diet. Hang in there! It will be worth it in the end!

Yep, it is hard when you are the only one on a restricted diet..but hang in there. You ARE doing GOOD. I could NOT give up diet sodas. i gave up REGULAR ones a couple of years ago and I'm sorry, that is my only joy - ha ha

I agree. It is so hard not to eat when other people are eating!

Glad your headaches are going away.

I'm happy for you you're feeling better.
I'm on a restricted diet too and I feel so angry at times that the others just keep offering me things I'm not allowed.

Keep on doing the good work!!
