So it’s been roughly a month since I pledged to start my new life style and it’s been tougher than I thought it would be. The no soda thing is actually going pretty well, because until last night I hadn’t had a sip since I told myself I wouldn’t. I caved last night though and had a glass of Pepsi Max. And I still feel sick about it. It was way to sweet and I can’t seem to handle it anymore. Which is probably a good thing.
The new thing I’m giving up is fast food. I eat way too much garbage and fast food is a lot of that. No more running to Wendy’s or Taco Bell for lunch just because it’s the easiest. A co-worker of mine has been working on loosing weight too and we’ve been doing good at being encouragement for one another. She’s been bringing salad for lunch and I think I’m going to start following her lead.
Now in all of that I did my first weigh in since I started last week and I’ve lost 5 lbs by just cutting the soda. I have to say that I’m pretty happy with that. Especially because I know that I can do even better when I get my eating habits in line with that.
Alright, I really should get a jump on the day now. 🙂 Thanks for anyone who’s reading…and even if no one is, this is therapeutic. So I’m going to keep it up.
