I have never known anyone to drink as much diet soda as my mother in law Kris. Never. People may think they know someone to drink more but you honestly don't. On average I'd say she drinks about 64 oz a day. She is never more than 10 feet from a soda. When I went out shopping with her the other day she got a Diet Dr. Pepper at Target for the shop and finished it, then we ran to Costco and she got another one, again finishing it during the shop, and then we ran over to Chipotle and she guzzled down another (not to mention the 12 pack in the fridge that was consumed in two days) and those three were consumed in two hours.

Holy. Cow.

Adam has been begging her to give them up. That is SOOOOOOOOOOOO bad for you to do to your body. She loves them though.

Today she stops for one year. No more soda. She wanted to do a sacrifice since Terry is going to Iraq for a year. I've done this for about three years, and Adam has done this before but this is a TRUE SACRIFICE! I think she'll do it. It will be is probably already hard since she has a diet coke every morning for breakfast, but I think it will be awesome. We are proud of you!

I'm sure Kris can do it... it sounds like her heart is in the right place... making a sacrifice while Terry is gone. I used to love Dr. Pepper and one day I decided to give it up (I'll tell you my motivational reasoning in person some time). I haven't had a drop of Dr. Pepper for 18 years, 2 months, and 28 days... but who's counting?
