GREAT Blog series!!!!
This is SO true! We live in a society which demands instant results. It's strange how our world today especially here in America, everything is about instant gratification. Especially when you brought up the ad add which you didn't need to change your daily routine just take this pill, lol! I know that one way to loose weight is to simply eat healthier, exercise, and to watch proportions is also a big thing. Soft drinks for example keep getting bigger and BIGGER and cheaper it seems. and I've seem some places where the biggest soft drink size is cheaper than the smallest
Personally I used to drink Gatorade every day back in high school up until I graduated in June 2008, but with that came cavities. I stopped drinking that and for the passed 2-3 years I've only been drinking water and I've had two Gatorades this year, and I don't even remember when I had pop last. I've also stopped eating fast food as often. I'm a HUGE fruit person so a wide assortment of that. I've maintained my weight for a year or two and when I went to the doctor yesterday I was eight pounds lighter than I thought I was! I wasn't even trying to lose weight!
I've never had a money problem because I never had a lot because I could never find employment. I don't have to worry too much about this yet since I'm still living with parents while I attend college full time. I just got a job last January where I'm a security guard and work on weekends and I've only brought two things with the money that I've earned which was a game and a DVD (Both cost around $50), but other than that I have been saving all the money I have earned from the job and I've avoided spending on things that I really don't need.
I've always been a saver and not a spending, and I'm really glad and BLESSED that I'm not tempted to go out and spend it at all because I know family members who have or had lived from paycheck to paycheck and I don't want to live like that. I also always tell myself that I work for the "Glory or God", and not for the money or for myself because if it wasn't for God I wouldn't even have a job in the first place!
You're spot on with your Blog Series, thank you for writing it sister!
