Learning Liberty’s Limits
Switching from soda to water helped heal me and keep my extra weight off. I had to stay away completely for almost 2 years.
I’m at a new point in my journey now. I trust myself. I have the occasional soda and I can cut myself off after one or two at the most. I know I have a bigger, better, more worth goal. That’s key in quitting anything, or keeping it in moderation. It tastes great, but I know it is bad for me. I also treat it with more gratitude when I do it less. It’s more of a treat now. Back then it was just a commodity.
I’ve learned that sometimes “I can’t have that” is far too limiting and can also cause me to gain or lose weight. I don’t want to be boxed in. It’s sort of like my commitment issue. I don’t want to say “I’ll do that” if I’m not sure.
I thank God I’m able to do certain things in moderation. I can stop because I know how bad it will end for me if I don’t. I do think that I should never put soda or a lot of other foods and drinks into my body, but I also know that if I limit myself, it inhibits me mentally and spiritually. I don’t want to stifle my creativity or my strength. Maybe that’s my story for drinking the occasional soda, but I’m sticking to it!
