How about water only at home, and when you go somewhere to eat, then you can have a tea?

I love tea as an alternative, and some of it is really good for you. It is helping me lose weight since I have cut out almost all carbonated stuff. I miss my Dews on occasion though LOL so I splurge and have 1 maybe once a week or so.

Oh and I live in GA so sweet tea is a huge part of my problem. So much sugar in there. I make my own and usually take a glass with me when I am out and about.
I looove Chai tea. I generally use sugar free sweetners in it, I like the taste better then actual sugar!

So far I've been really good about drinking water regardless of where I am! Those Vitamin Waters have low calories and actually taste really good!

I feel like my sentence came off kinda douchy :). Didn't mean it to. I was just thinking of how hard it was for me to stop drinking sodas, and things I tried.

I didnt take it like that at all! Just seemed like a harmless suggestion to me :)

Be careful with juice, it can be as high calorie as sodas. Simple math of calories in versus calories out. Burn more than you consume, sounds like you're on the right track! The only bummer part is...the more you lose the less calories your body needs - it's a cruel joke. I'm surprise how much riding burns though. I'm meaning to wear my heart rate monitor one day to the barn and see what I really burn working with my horse.

Major kudos to you for cutting back on the soda. I am a total sodaholic and pledged to cut it out of my diet a month ago. The first week was the hardest but the cravings started going away after that first week.

Keep up the great work!
