Soda pop aka Liquid Satan is bad! (see the video) I’ve drastically limited my soda intake for the past few years, only having it on rare occasions. But, at my new job, they have free cans of soda in the fridge. What could one soda at lunch hurt? It’s okay to have a caffeine pick me up during the 3 o’clock slump right? I’m not addicted, I just like it right? WRONG! It does hurt my body, my face started to break out and my knees started back hurting. And, yes I did get re-addicted to caffeine. But, the lesson I forgot is that I can break the caffeine soda addiction. It might be an uncomfortable addiction to break, and it will take a few weeks, but it’s possible. I will cut out soda again.
Cookies are bad for me. I have no control over them. I can never eat just a small amount, I will always want more. There is no other food that causes me to eat so insanely, during and after the sugar rush. But, the lesson I forgot, is that God helps with even the smallest prayers, like “God help me be strong and eliminate cookies from my diet.” I am strong enough to say NO to free cookies, and I’m strong enough to throw them away. I’ve done it before, I can do it again.
- Years ago, I lost 50 pound in 6 months with the Weight Watchers program. Track your food, go to meetings, and get active. It’s not rocket science The lesson I forgot is that, If I’ve done it before, I can do that again too.
5. The last lesson I forgot is that sometimes looking back at your own past success can be more inspiring than anything else.
