It at least makes me think twice about grabbing another soda in the afternoon when my arms hurt from 120 pushups. It's not even close to perfect, but my eating/drinking habits never will be, so I try to eliminate as much of the bad as I can stand while doing little things to temper the bad habits I keep.
I'm within 2-3 pounds of my ideal weight now, so I'm not sweating it too much compared to when I was 20 pounds heavier.
I've found that I'm not as hungry whenever I drink a soda. So, I figure if I can curb my appetite with a zero calorie soda, then it's better than the alternative. I just have to stop being "better than I was" and start being "as good as I can be". I'm a long ways from it, but I'm heading in the right direction.
