Day 35 of 100 Days of Gratitude
Friday, April 21, 2017
I'm struggling again. I lost 5 1/2# during the first two months in my temporary location and that is hard to do with lots of meals out, free time (to snack), etc. I was so pleased. But I letting my emotions control my eating instead of ME controlling my eating and regained it.
So yesterday was Day 1 of breaking my lifelong--(on & off)) addiction to diet soda (after I'd been soda free for 6 wks then caved for 3 weeks). The news tonight reported a respected study that indicates that diet soda increases our tendency toward dementia and stroke. I am grateful for that research because it gives me even a stronger reason to stop this habit of mine. It's easier for me to quit other triggers, too, (chocolate, snacks, etc.) if I don't drink the soda. Here's a motivation that might work.
