Weight Loss Wednesday

Well.  How did your week of portion control go?  I did great with portion control during meals.  It was those blasted Valentine chocolates that followed us home from the grocery store.  Curse you Dove melt-away centers!  Curse you and your creaminess!  From here on out I pledge to only bring candy into the home that the kids love and I dislike.  No more chocolate...for a while.  *sigh*

My test...yes that test came back fine!  Phew!  Now I'm waiting on my blood work results.  Hoping and praying here!   The scale?  We're still not friends, but I'm o.k. with that.  I'm sure it'll warm up to me after a while.  *wink*

This week let's keep focusing on portion control and add 8 whopping glasses of water!  No, other beverages don't count.  Not soda, tea, coffee, chai (a-hem).  Water!  Of course you can drink those other beverages but did you know that you need to drink one glass of water for every glass of tea, coffee, soda, etc. that you drink.  So let's do the math.  If you drink say a chai and a glass of tea, then you need to drink your 8 glasses of water plus 2 more glasses to match those other beverages.  Good news?  Milk and juices count towards that 8 glasses of water!  Yahoo!

So this week...portion control, portion control, portion control and drink, drink, drink!  Go forth and conquer the scale my friends!  Go forth!

You can do it! I've read "drink half your weight, in ounces" in water. So if you weigh 200, drink 100oz of water.

You can also put lemon in water to flavor it. Also, the apple water-flavor is good heated.
