I've given up fizzy drinks and chocolates during the week. It's for a lot of reasons - mainly my health and losing weight. Partially because of the disastrous checkup I had with the dentist last week. But also I have this tendency to comfort eat. I eat chocolates and sweets when I'm feeling low. When I'm confused, or lonely, tired, irritable, in pain, when I don't fully understand what I'm feeling. I've been without chocolate or Coke for a week (weekdays only, I did have Coke on the weekend!) and yesterday was the first time I really wanted some Coke. And I got through it but it's just getting worse. But I'm going to stick with it. Wish me luck.
