Though I’m ashamed to admit it here — and though I loathe the bloated, distended feeling I get after consuming it — I think I have finally concluded why I drink so much Diet Coke:
It fills me when I’m hungry, so I’m not obsessing about food.
Not exactly a healthy mindset, huh?! Sigh … looks like I have a little soul-searching to do. (Hanging head in shame).
I believe in healthy living and clean eating … but am essentially a hypocrite if I’m not living it, myself.
I know what I need to do to feel better: limit my sugar intake (i.e., my trigger foods) and limit my Diet Coke consumption (chemicals my body doesn’t need).
The truth is, I’m just afraid to do it.
I think I need to just take the one-day-at-a-time approach … I know it can be done; other bloggers have done it, and friends have done it.
I use Diet Coke as a crutch … and I simply can’t do it any longer. I’m going to give this some thought over the next day or two and will report back but just wanted to share where my head’s at right now.
