It was hard but a few months ago I cut out all sodas for over 3 weeks and switched to water with lemon or cucumber in it. Now I will drink maybe 2 sodas per week and that is usually if I stop for fast food lunch and almost always drink plain water now. I lost over 20lbs pretty quickly in the first month or so but then the weight loss leveled out. an added benefit, I have noticed that my memory seems better without all of the sugar or caffeine or whatever else isn't in my system now. I can't even drink a Mountain Dew now...YUK!!!
    You are now the poster child for the anti-HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) crusade and what happens when it is cut form the human diet. Good on you. Now, try to cut out everything else that has HFCS in it. The best way is to just eat things made in nature, minimally processed. For a faux soda fix, try flavored sparking water. All the tingly with nothing added.
    If the military wanted you to have a spouse, or family, they would have issued you one.
