Making a Lifestyle Change: No More Chocolate

It's not easy making a lifestyle change.  The one I'm trying?  Kicking the chocolate habit.  It started out as a fast, but once I learned that a serving of Hershey Kisses equals a third of a soda's caffeine, I became determined to make it last.  I fought so hard to become caffeine free a few years ago; I'm so angry that I let it sneak back in, so much, in this form.

Napoleon Hill talks about burning your boats, leaving no way of retreat.  This will be hard, but I can do it.  Chocolate free.

But the thing is, a few years ago, it would have been impossible.  I was addicted to soda.  I drank six cans of it a day, every day, for about thirty years.  Now I drink 99% water, every day. 

All those efforts, all those hard won battles, they aren't just forgotten.  They are reminders.  They are practice.  They are confidence.  They are more.  I think they reprogram you.  They change you.  So when you make no lifestyle changes, your starting point isn't the same.  You aren't the same.  Even if you fail, you don't fall as far.

But I don't plan on failing. 

You can read more about my journey on my first blog post.  I appreciate inspiration and support.

Thank you.
