Chicken nuggets, greasy burgers, roast beef sandwiches, fried chicken, unhealthy tacos and burritos are all reasons why I chose to quit my fast-food habit. When I was a kid, I would eat fast-food for lunch and sometimes dinner. It was cheap and easy to get. I would eat it and feel satisfied without thinking of the consequences. When I was in middle school, I noticed that I was gaining weight and the primary reason was of unhealthy eating. I went to a smaller school and saw that most of the people around me were skinnier. I was not very overweight so I never was encountered with serious health issues but still was a few pounds heavier then I should have been and knew I had to lose weight or do something to slim down because I was still young and if I continued then it would get worse when I became older. I then quit eating as much fast-food. I would still eat some because it was what was for lunch but I lowered the quantity. Before, I would get multiple things including side orders and eat it all in a short period of time. A restaurant that I started eating more of was Subway. I always liked Subway because it was fresh and delicious. I did not choose to get it as much before because places like McDonald's were cheaper. Even though Subway is still not the most healthy thing to eat when trying to lose some weight, it was way better then eating greasy fattening fast-food. I think what made my story of quitting fast-food habit was the fact that I did not have anyone have to tell me that I needed to lose weight. I am sure that people thought that I was a little overweight but the decision to lose weight was mine. I knew that quitting fast-food may be hard because fast-food restaurants are located close to me. Now that I am older, I have lost a few pounds since then and at an average weight. I have decreased my fast-food eating and have started working out more. I did Tae Kwon Do and other home exercises to try and lose weight. I learned that I was someone that could break a habit most people can't. I did not want to be someone who grew up overweight and then become an adult who was overweight. I did not want to be labeled as one of the people in America that was overweight. I am not a guy that has six-pack abs but someone who has graduated high school at a decent weight.
