Yayy..progress

Sunday, January 13, 2008

I've lost 6 pounds since the beginning of the month, and I'm very happy about that. Only 4 more pounds to get back to square one lol, but at least that holiday disaster is melting off my hips now! I know some of it is water weight, but still, it's progress! One of my challenges from one of my teams that I'm working on was to drink my 8 glasses of water, which I was struggling with, and yesterday I made a decsion to quit torturing myself and trying to make myself like water out of the tap, or just plain water. I know it should be easy, but I just dont like it, so forcing myself is always going to be a struggle. But I like Propel waters. A lot of the less expensive flavored sports waters taste like .....well, insert bad word here.... to me, and they can be pretty high in calories too, but Propel tastes good, and 8 oz only has 10 calories, and they are convenient. So .. I decided I'm just going to do it...the thing that was holding me back was the cost, but I figure with the savings from not drinking soda and not buying all that junk food, I'm still coming out even, if not ahead. Silly how lil things like that can give a lil bit of confidence, but I feel a little more in control, so I guess that is a good thing.

    What a great heatlhy attitude! I absolutely love water, but we have horrible tap so we have to use the bottled. I am so picky about the "flavor of water" so I have found which taste the best to me. I think it's fine that you are drinking propel and it is giving you extra nutrient! We also keep the "AquaSplash" flavored water as it is cheaper and my kids will drink it! I think you are doing very well! Way to go! Cathy

    Way to go! 6lbs is 6lbs, no matter what! I totally agree about the water torture as well! I think you are looking at it the right way! You could acutally come out ahead! Just look for a sale. I don't know what grocery stores you have where you are, but we generally have some pretty good ones on, like 10 for 10 and such! Anyway, good luck and keep up the good work! You'll be on that cruise in no time and feeling good in whatever you choose to wear!
