high fructose corn syrup
This has all become a part of my past.
I have been lectured by many people about the affects of soda consumption. I had tried, and many times failed the whole-hearted attempts to kick the addiction to the bubbly caffine. Yet, time and time again I would return to my one-true vice, Pepsi.
I have to frequently remind myself to not think, "I work hard, I deserve to have just one-this, or just one that". I do not want to sabotage the hard work I am doing by adding toxins (sugar) to my body when I can certainly go without it.
Now, that four months have past, I can truely say, I am not a soda drinker! WAHOO! I took a sip of Cody's the other day and it was, DIS-GUS-TING! He said, "Nope, it tastes fine to me", so I have rid my tounge of the sugar addiction and am so happy I did. There are miles of articles and books written about the long term damage high fructose corn syrup does to a persons bones, and such. And recently I read about carmel color being bad for you...I know, I know, what isn't bad. Nevertheless, it is a personal victory.
Cheers- (with a glass of h20)- to you and your VICTORY-what ever it is!
