Small changes

Friday, March 09, 2012

I've made a small change lately.

In the past few months I have made a concerted effort to stay away from soda. Coca-Cola to be exact. Because that little red can is my weakness. One of my favorites -

A Coca-Cola from a fast food joint, the ice and the fizz on a hot day.

Taking that first sip.

Taking a bite of your food then a cool sip of the Coca-Cola.

It's like crack.

[I'm just assuming that's what happens when you smoke crack. I have never smoked crack. Marijuana yes. Crack no. Are we clear?]

Okay, on to my point. As I said I have been making a real effort to try and stay away from the almighty red Coca-Cola can and have been drinking things like -



That small change... guess what? In 2 months, approximately 8 pounds without even really trying.

Just from cutting back on crack.

    That's great! I have been trying S.Pellegrino with crystal light. Not quite the same, but I love the fizz! Good job :)

    Oh yeah, cutting back on or eliminating soda is one of the first things I suggest to people looking to shed a few pounds. A lot of calories, a lot of sugar, zero nutrition. I at least add nuts to chocolate chip cookies emoticon

    Seriously though, it's all about moderation. I pick my poisons.

    That is fantastic!! Going to have to check some of those out. I'm not a big soda drinker (and if I do, it's caffeine free diet coke!), so it's nice to find some other things to drink besides water!! Hope everything else is going good!! Enjoy the weather tomorrow.
