Where does one start?

Youíve been looking at yourself, and noticing that expanding waistline. Itís not what you used to have. Itís not want you want to have. So, what are you going to do about it?
First off, analyze your liquid intake. If you drink pop, stop. Quit cold turkey. Switch to water. Or, if youíre like myself and canít handle the taste of water, make better decisions than what you have been.
When I made the switch from pop to something healthier, I switched to diet iced tea. The cost was virtually the same, but the impact on my health, and on the visual I portrayed, was rather dramatic. Not dramatic as in ďWow, in 3 days Iíve lost 50lbs!Ē, however I did easily lose about 20 pounds in 2 to 3 months.
Nowadays, I still drink iced tea, however I use the Nestea crystals, and I use twice the amount of water that is called for one packet. I bring a Rubbermaid, 1 litre bottle with me, and two 3 gallon(11 liter) refillable bottles of water with a pump. Easier on my health, and easier on my budget too.
Give it a try. If you donít like it after a month, you can always go back to pouring the flavoured sugar known as soda pop down your gullet. However, what if you find you like it? Hmmmm?
