Day 3 of Water Challenge - withdrawal symptoms begin...

So it's Day 3. I NEED JUICE. PLEASE! ORANGE JUICE. APPLE JUICE. ANYTHING! The first two days weren't so bad. But today, everything I ate seemed to beg for an accompaniment of sugar. Eggs in the morning? How bout some OJ. Hot dog for lunch? What about some diet coke? Lowfat spinach dip for a snack... hmm... my mind was going crazy for a sweet treat! ::sigh:: I knew it couldnt be as easy as I was hoping but still. Right now, all I want is a nice warm cup of hot cocoa, but I know that it would go against the challenge so I must abstain. I know it's for good reason. I heard that it takes 21 days for a habit to form, so maybe after the 7 day challenge I can move up to 21 days?? Uhh... can't think that far ahead.

Some of you may be asking, why can't u have diet coke or flavored water? Well for one thing, pure water is the best for cleansing purposes. And besides that, for me sugar is a trigger. Even FAKE sugar is a trigger. So I know myself enough to know that having a diet coke really is only a gateway drug into wanting more sugary things. So pure water it is! How are my fellow water challengers doing? Any withdrawal yet???


  1. I'm doing the water thing but not as strictly as you are. I have an occasional glass of diet soda or light juice. :) Keep at it, girl!

  2. I tried too, but i just can't go to the bathroom that much, and I need some FLAVOR! LOL
