Although I had a week full of sickness last week I still managed to drink my water. I had a couple of days that I didn't get it drank like I had wanted to but it didn't hurt too bad I guess. Weigh-in was yesterday and I still lost. I only lost .2 lbs but it was still a loss. It seems the closer I get to my first goal (only 1.7 lbs to go) the slower it is coming off. But then I'm not really staying away from the things I shouldn't. I am still eating those things that I want to eat just being sure not to eat beyond my point of satisfaction.
The whole point to my weight-loss this time around is to control my eating habits....or should I say let the Lord control my eating habits. This is a new way of eating for me and and healthier way of eating. I haven't counted "points" in several weeks now and I'm still losing. So that is encouraging. That tells me that I'm doing better with my way of eating and my portions. We can all lose weight if we will just eat till we are satisfied and DRINK OUR WATER!!
Sis. Karen (who heads up our group at church) has challenged each of us ladies to drink our water (8 glasses) each day and come back next Sunday and see how we did with our weight-loss. We will lose by eating less but we will lose more by drinking our water as well as eating less. Why don't you take this challenge with us starting today. Drink your 64-68 oz. of water each day this week and see how it helps you with your weight-loss.
