I used to drink a lot of diet pepsi thinking it was not bad for weightloss at all since there's no sugar, no sodium, etc in it. I had gotten serious about dieting and exercising, yet I was not seeing the results I wanted. I quit drinking diet soda completely and the weight immediately fell off. I started drinking it again and the weight stopped coming off again! As soon as I gave it up for good, I had no problem.
Of course it's better than sugary soda but my trainer buddy said in alot of people, their body reacts to fake sugar just like regular sugar so you hold on to the weight, plus carbonation leads to lots of bloat!

You know the food... the brownies/cookies/bagels that appear in the breakroom at work with a note "help yourself"; or a client brings by a box of doughnuts to show their "appreciation"; or even the free samples at Costco...
Just because it's free, doesn't mean it's for me!
After all, just because it didn't cost you any money, doesn't mean it's going to not have a price attached to it!
I posted a blog this morning after floundering for too long. I shared honestly where I am and what I need to do to get back on track. The support I've received is heartwarming. The freedom of being honest with myself and sharing that is an unexpected bonus.
It's ok to admit defeat and reaching out to your Sparkfriends will definitely help!
