Perhaps most remarkable about the past six months is that I've managed to go that much time without having a single sugary drink, other than a couple sips once or twice. No Coke, Mountain Dew, Sprite, root beer, or anything else delicious. In the past I'd have a few a week, but even getting rid of three a week is a good 400 pointless (but tasty) calories worth of carbs saved. Over 24 weeks that works out to be about three pounds worth of body fat—not a ton, but not completely insignificant either. I'll add them back into my regular diet in some fashion somewhere down the road, but not just yet.
