I used to study in front of my computer while eating. Now I take a small break away from the stress to eat and I’m eating way less. I also try to drink a big glass of water before each meal to fill me up a bit. I’m already down 7lb in 2 weeks. IYAMHEALTHY

My two best friends have started going to the gym every week as part of their New Years Resolution. Though I’m already at a healthy weight, I’ve always eaten tons of chocolate and never really thought about what I’m eating. Now, because they’re starting to be healthier, I’m starting to follow their lead by drinking only water, paying attention to food labels, and taking walks more often. My skin’s starting to look nicer, it gives me a confidence boost, and I already feel healthier! IYAMHEALTHY

I buy bottled water in bulk (usually whatever’s on sale) and keep it in my trunk. Every day, when I go into my work, I take 3 bottles in. Since each bottle is about 16 ounces, I get 6 of my 8 cups of water during the day, and I avoid spending lots of money on the vending machine. IYAMHEALTHY

High blood pressure runs in my family, and mine was starting to get up there. I drank a lot of diet soda, which has a lot of sodium so I thought about it and realized that the part I liked the most in the soda was the bubbles. Now I go through a case of seltzer every few days but my blood pressure is down and I’m better hydrated than I’ve ever been before. IYAMHEALTHY.

I used to drink soda all the time. I probably had more than one soft drink a day. I decided to go on a soda fast for one year. I thought that after the fast, I would go right back to my previous soda drinking habits. But after the year was up, I had discovered lots of other drinking options and I don’t drink soda half as much as I used to! Not only do I rarely drink soda, I don’t want it as often! I am so glad I chose to do the fast and stuck to it! IYAMHEALTHY
