I have drinking 48 oz +of diet soda daily for years. I have diabetes and I have lost about 100 lbs in the past 10 years. I have a ways to go but I have done a good job maintaining weight loss. This last month, I gave up diet soda altogether. It started because I ran out and I decided to try going without.
The problem is that after a month, I have put on about 10 pounds. I will do a better job of journaling my food intake over the next month but I am seriously bummed out. I was so proud of myself for having the willpower to do this but the results are just the opposite of what I had hoped!
Any suggestions or word of encouragement?
