Weight Loss Success Story of the Week
This Man Quit Drinking Soda & Lost 170 Pounds! – I’ve never had a real problem with soda but I didn’t grow up with soda either. My mom never bought it just to have it around. She would save it for special occasions when we ordered pizza as a family or for birthday parties and things like that. I love her for it. This man quit drinking pop (that’s what I call it!) cold turkey one day after waking up and just flat out being sick of the way he was living. He grew up obese and blames it all on his own laziness, poor eating habits and lack of exercise. Since then he’s lost weight, ran his first 10k, ran his first half-marathon and now has plans to run a full marathon in March 2012! You can completely change your lifestyle at any age, it’s never too late!
