Getting Slim

For the last five days I have been drinking my little pink drink and a whole lotta water. At times I wonder if I could float away on all of the water that I have been drinking.

I have tried to stay away from the scale, but curiosity got the best of me this morning and I just had to know. I have lost 5 pounds in 5 days! Wooo! I know that it's water weight and blah, blah, blah, but this is 5 pounds less than I weighed on Saturday.

I feel better as well. It's strange how one change to your routine (quitting Mountain Dew or adding a diet supplement) will help you notice the things that you are putting into your body. I have not had any fast food for lunch this week, opting instead to pick up a pack of cold cuts, some cups of yogurt and a bag of onion rolls from the grocery store earlier this week.

I know that there is no such thing as easy weight loss. I have heard what people say about as soon as I stop taking the supplement that I will gain it right back, but this has enabled me to quit Mountain Dew, has encouraged me to drink more water and eat healthier. It was the catalyst I needed to really focus on my health and I feel like that's what I really needed.

Also, the taste is not that bad. The first day it seemed almost overly sweet, but now it tastes like raspberry lemonade. It doesn't smell bad and it seems pretty fancy to have a glass of something pink in the morning.

I don't get the mid afternoon munchies the way that I did before (which is awesome!) and I have more energy and focus throughout the day. In fact, I have energy to play with my kid when  I get home from work (before I was just counting down the minutes to bedtime).

I encourage you to try this! I know that it seems pricey (but it's less than the almost $300 a month I was spending on the Dew). If you are unsure, take the 7 day challenge and see for yourself. If you have a lot to lose, or just need to make some extra part-time cash, you can become an ambassador and get your product for free!

  1. Do you mind if I ask how much Mtn Dew you were drinking per day? I think it's a really good reminder to us all that even one or two sugar sodas a day can be a detriment to our weight goals.
