This Sparked Me!

before i started sparkpeople i ate fast food ALL the time...its been hard starting out and staying away from it...i started a *100 days with no fast food* challenge to keep me motivated and also i leave my debit card in the back seat of my car under the floor mat, if its not easily accessible im less likely to stop and pick up something i dont need...sound extreme? it is! but this is coming from a person that is trying to break really bad eating habits and hey, its working!!

    Thank you so much for posting this. I'm a single girl in my 20s who works and goes to school fulltime, and I'm ALWAYS stopping to get fast food. I know that that is one of the worst things I can do, so to know someone else has the same problem, and is DOING something about it is great. Good luck to you, and thank you again for sharing!

    What ever works-------go for it.

    Amen. Me to. Best goal yet. No fast food for 100 days, leave the (for me) credit card somewhere inaccessible (I don't have a back seat I could do this with, but I have often thought of freezing it in water in my fridge so it had to be thawed out before I could use it. Thought about it never did it. Guess it's time to try it. What's the worst that could happen?

    I haven't eaten fast food (other than Subway) in over four years! My life is SO much better for it! :)))

    If you really think about what fast food and high fat/low fibre foods actually DO to your innards, you'd probably want to stop eating them asap. Recently I discovered I have gallstones. The attacks are incredibly painful and most often surgery is inevitable. Can you afford time off from work or a hospital stay to correct a problem you've created by eating junk?

    This is a really great idea. I love the extra effort put into it with the debit card under the seat. Sometimes it's far to easy to just grab the card and do things that are bad for you. emoticon
