Since I arrived at EWU in September 2011 I had gained a total of 6 pounds! That’s right folks i managed to gain 6 pounds in three months. I realized that I was gaining the weight because i was eating whatever I wanted in my apartment, I was very excited that my sisters weren’t going to take my ice cream bars or that I had my favorite candy bar in the fridge and that it was all mine. The only time I exercised was when I walked to the fridge and back to the couch. When I weighed my self during winter break I was shocked to find out that I had gained the extra weight. So when all the holidays were over I decided when we went grocery shopping that I was not going to buy myself any cookies,chips,ice cream etc…. So one in particular was Istopped drinking soda and grabbing those oh so delicious starbucks white chocolate mochas, now I strictly stick to water or juice( on occasion)which is helping me immensley, so my extinction was going out and grabbing a soda and now I really don’t even think about grabbing a soda at all. I would say in the last month or so I have consumed about 3 cans of soda which is great compared to the 12 or 13 I was drinking a month.
