Goodbye one more BAD habit!

Friday, February 08, 2013

I haven't blogged in a couple of days, so I thought I would do so today. This week has been good for me except for getting in all of my water. Gonna work on that this weekend. I've been trying to leave a bottle of water in every room of my house so that wherever I am ...its available.
For years I was a HUGE Pepsi-holic. I couldn't go a day without at least ONE. And if I did happen to run out, it didn't take me long to jump in the car and drive all the way into town for my fix. I've even been known to raid the kid's piggy banks for a Pepsi. How desparate is that? lol. In my previous attempts to lose weight, I have always either worked in my Pepsi habit or tried to get used to Diet Soft Drinks. WELL...... for me, I'd just rather have water lol. That's just my personal opinion. I could never get used to the "after taste." So, the other day out of the blue I thought.....WOW....I haven't even THOUGHT of a Pepsi. I truly never thought I would hear those words come out of my mouth. That's how strong my addiction was. I am thankful to God that he has helped me with this. I can't even remember the last time I had one. YES!!!
I have had other family members who kicked the habit. I think its been 7 years or so since my daughter had a soft drink, but for me I could never have imagined I could do that.
Time for the weekend, and the challenges that come with eating right. I do fine at home, but years of eating out on the weekend has become another habit I would like to change. Not so much eating out, as just making wiser decisions. This year is all about positive changes for me. I feel really good about the ones I have made so far.
Take care everyone and have a wonderful weekend!

    emoticon Mellie! That's awesome! I used to be just about that bad with Coca Cola! But now they taste really sugary! There's not much in the way of flavored drinks that don't taste too sweet to me now!
