I have never tried this hard to eat right and not drink wrong! I have been soda free for over a week now and I'm feeling good. I'm eating right and the weight is slowly coming off. I think I'll hit the park tonight for a run.
Every time I stop and start to exercise it gets so much harder. I'm back to running as much as possible and on my 3rd day of eating right. The running is very discouring because I can only manage running for less then 20 minutes before my lungs and legs feel like they are about to burst. I've been at this point before and know I'll go further with time and effort but it sure feels like it is taking more to get beyond this point. My mind is not in the right place either. I know the good feeling is just a workout away but it is sure hard to get out the door to start.
The eating is not going to bad. In just a couple of days I can see results on the scale. I am missing my Diet Coke!
I'm just an average middle age guy that is trying to get his life back. One day I looked up and didn't recognize myself; I was fat, bald, and attached to the couch. I have a wife, son, and dog who I love and they love me. I will turn my life around starting with my health.
