Dear Fast Food,
I know that we've been together for a long time, but it's time for me to move on and leave you in the past. You know who you are...my favourite pizza places, my favourite burger and fry places, and my favourite Tex-Mex food places.
I enjoyed you while we were together, but I'm not going to feel sick because of you anymore. There are SO many better things that I can eat that will actually aid in my quest to lead a healthy and active life, and I don't need you slowing me down anymore.
I may miss you, or even crave you at some point in the future, but instead of giving in and taking backwards steps in my journey, I'm going to turn to my Spark Friends and especially my new Accountability Buddy to help me realize that you are not that answer, and that there are other ways to handle cravings.
I know the last time that I had a meal at each one of you, and I can't wait until the day that I can say an entire year has passed since I indulged in your food. Each day, week and month that passes will give me the strength to keep you out of my life, because let's face it, you're no good for me.
Now if for some reason I find myself walking through your doors in the DISTANT future, my "regular" meals won't be the option I choose. I will make the best of the situation and get the healthiest thing I can!
You're probably saying "Oh, come one, we've heard this all before", but I'm stronger than you think now, and I'm determined to succeed.
So again, thanks for the fun and definitely delicious times, by my waist line, and my wallet don't want anything to do with you anymore...No hard feelings ok?
