I didn't really lose any weight when I quit drinking mountain dew
(high calories and higher quantity), but that was only one reason I
quit. I think I lost a couple of pounds initially, but I had expected
to continue losing since I stopped drinking it altogether.

I expected to feel worse at first and never did. I think I felt a
little better after awhile., I did notice a drop in headaches.

When I went to mexico for a couple vacations, they didn't have
mountain dew, so I had caffiene withdrawal. The headaches were bad.
When I actually quit on purpose, it went much better than expected. I
had chosen another drink that had less caffiene but some, to be my
intermediate drink as I cut down. That lasted all of 5 days. I got to
work, and that drink was empty. I knew I had some high caffiene
chocolate in my locker, so I decided to wait and see how long it took
for the headache to start, and then eat the chocolate. The headache
never came. So, I've been on water ever since.

The hardest part was learning to enjoy the water. I was so used to the
sweet flavor and the fizz. The water was quite plain and boring at
