It sort of just happened. In part because I started consuming something new, but also in part because of my double chin and ever expanding waist line are embarrassing me. I've been drinking at least 2 liters of soda a day for over 10 years. At some points, I would consume 2-2 liters or a twelve pack of cokes in a day.
About two weeks ago, I started drinking the tea at home. With the exception of maybe once or twice, I haven't had coke at the house in about two weeks. That's a huge deal for me. It would probably bring tears to my grandma's eyes.
It's not easy, though. I know if I want, I could go downstairs right now, pull a 2 liter out of the fridge and pour it over ice and drink two cups in about five minutes. I can feel the burning sensation it would cause my tongue and throat. I know how refreshing it would be. I know it sounds crazy, but I swear I am addicted to coke. I feel like the polar bears during the Holiday season who open the coke and gurgle it down. I could TOTALLY go for that right now. *Ahhhh...refreshing*
But, I'm trying. I'm trying for the sake of my body. I can't stand being fat and this is one of my largest calorie consumers.
It's worth it, right?
