I have decided that I really do need to give up my addiction to sweet liquid gold! I can't keep drinking so much soda, it's bad for me and it's keeping me from sleeping. When I was a kid I never drank soda and guess what, I never had a cavity. As an adult, I can drink my body weight in soda, and I have the cavities to prove it now. So, as I sit here with a can right next to me, I will start by cutting back how much I drink each day. Once the 12-pack that's eyeballing me is gone I will be done! FOREVER.
I also need to stop eating like a man! I don't know why I do it, maybe because I grew up poor and hungry, but I feel like I have to get "my share" of the food. When we go to a fast food place I feel the need to order as much food as Rob, if he orders two burritos and a taco, I feel like I should eat that much too, so it's fair. It's really a bizarre way of looking at food and it's what is making me so fat! Last night is a perfect example, I was completely full after eating the frozen pizza but decided to eat again because Rob was hungry. I even tried to eat as much as him the second time around, my breakfast bowl was almost as big as his. And, if I didn't hate scrambled eggs as much as I do, I probably would have finished that sucker! So, starting today I will eat like a normal person, not a death row inmate enjoying his last meal!
I say "goodbye" Coca-Cola, you have been my tasty best friend for so many years!

And, goodbye heaping helpings of delicious food. You have made me feel so full for so, so long!

The good thing about these changes is I do love healthy food. I just don't eat it very often because no one else in this house likes it. I will definitely be able to eat better for breakfast and lunch. For dinner, I will probably eat the same unhealthy things as my family but now I will eat smaller portions and load up on veggies!
