Lose the Soda Habit: 2nd Things 2nd

I use to drink 1 can of soda per day.  Sometimes, I drank 2 cans of sodas per day.

I knew I had to part with my favorite drink, Coca Cola:

I also estimated how much my soda habit was adding more pounds to my weight.

        140 calories per can of Coke
x      365 days per year________
   51,100 est. calories per year

It is also estimated that 3,500 calories = 1 pound.

     51,100 / 3,500 = 14.57 pounds

Essentially, my soda habit was adding an estimate of 14.57 pounds onto my body annually.  That is 14.57 pounds I would be more than happy to lose or better yet, never to have in the first place.
