Not talking blackjack or gambling here.....I am talking diet and new years resolutions.

All I can say is today was Jerry's Nugget day. One of my favorite spots (I just wish it was in a different location).

So lunch at the Jerry's famous coffee shop, that wasn't so bad, diet wise. The bad part was hitting the bakery on the way out. Got one of those Chocolate Mousse cakes to go. Upon returning home the mousse cake survived all of about 3 minutes. So yummy! So bad. :(

All good things IN MODERATION.

No problem eating the occasional treat, just don't make it part of a regular diet.

Now I understand why the celebs enjoy high quality food in small quantities (small plates): that way they eat enough to enjoy the taste, but not enough to put on the pounds.

*note to the guys: Here's a quick way to see if you're too fat. Get nude. Stand up straight. Look down. Can you see your "junk?" If not, if your belly obscures the view, you're too fat.*

Diet is only half the concern. Also take into consideration what you're doing with the intake of calories. If you eat a cake, do you sit on your rear for the remainder of the day?

Include cardio, or some other exercise into your routine, and you'll notice a difference.
I know that when I'm focused on physical fitness, my diet will improve in part, because I will feel physically ill if I try and consume junk food after a workout.

Edit:
Spelling
This feeling is heavy, makes my body ache and I'm ready; To fall into the sky and I see now, the reason why. My heart is heavy, takes me to a place I can't breathe. Only then I know why I see the warning sign.

Wait now. Does swimming in cold water and "shrinkage" (Seinfeld reference) enter into this equation? :)

Hang in there KJ

I've given up Coke Zero and all sodas/diet sodas as a New Year's resolution
So far, so good

I've also started drinking alkaline water in an effort to help with Crohn's

Hopefully this thread can keep us all going in 2016 and beyond!

I gave up diet soda years ago after reading about Aspartame, which is in all cola type diet sodas. Read about Aspartame....it's a scary chemical. In addition I have seen reports that some of the substitute sweeteners, have side effects that make you crave sweets. Talk about counter-productive.

I drink a lot of water. I love ice cold water. Once a day I will have soda (not diet) with my meal that I eat out, but I don't buy soda to drink at home, although some of my other housemates do.

I had so many people tell me that quitting soda/diet soda was a difficult thing to do - I am not saying I don't miss it but there have been no "withdrawal" symptoms and I feel less "bloated"
