I used to think I could never go without a soda. Just thinking about not ever drinking a soda again would make me crave it even more. It was actually a lot easier than I thought, to kick. I mainly drink water and one cup of coffee a day. If I want a soda, I split one with my fiancÚ, so I still get the taste, but I get half the calories.
Since I quit drinking soda I lost 4 labs in a week and a half! Imagine the possibilities!222
Getting back on track has been easier than I thought it would be. Instead of trying to take my weight loss goal and the time from here to there as a big chunk and a long way off, I'm tracking my food one day at a time, one meal at a time. Thank you Spark People!
If I can't keep these foods out of my cupboards, I keep foods that I don't want to have easy access to (think chips, chocolate, etc) in plastic bags and bury them in the cupboards and back of the refrigerator. I also keep the good foods I want to munch on (veggies, fruit, nuts, etc) in the front of the fridge and cupboard. That way I'm organically creating healthy habits by making it hard to get the bad foods mindlessly.
