    You are doing so good about keeping track of your food. Good!!!

    Are you keeping track of water intake? That is one that I had to do and still gets bad if I don't watch it.

    Keep coming here for support.

    Hello Jean
    No not keeping track of water intake...I hate to admit it but not much of a water drinker...probably drink about 32 oz a day of water, sometimes a bit more....

    Drinks today so far:
    cup of black coffee
    glass of water
    glass of sun tea
    12 oz can diet soda

    Hi Nancy. I HATED water. Absolutely hated it. Then when I got on this journey of mine, I started out carrying those reg. 16 oz bottles everywhere. It got so I was drinking about a case of those every 4 days and it got mucho expensive, so I bought 4 reg gallons of water, and now just refill those at the local water supplier.
    The true turning point was when I purchased a 32 oz water bottle from Big Lots. It cost just 2 bucks and I put that in my purse and carry it EVERYWHERE.
    For my am walks of a mile or a bit more, I drink 16 oz before I take off, then I get back to the car and while driving home, I drink the other 16 oz to empty it. I get home, refill and sit and blog for a bit, I drink water with my lunch, and dinner and I now find that even standing in line at walmart I'll sip at it. It's even less habit , its mindless. I just DO it.
    Try finding a big cheapy water bottle and try it my way, it really does work. The only places I can't take it in is the movies and the library. But everywhere else I go, IT goes.

    It took me about 6 mos to get into the OK, I will try to get 64 oz of water in. I bought 2-32 oz. containers and mix Crystal Light. I add ice and this is my go-to drink. I pack it for car drives and in the house. I drink 2 big mugs of tea in the AM with Splenda and ff milk.

    The increase in water makes you feel full. Sometimes we mistake thirst for hunger and we get out of control with food. Water will also flush your body of sodium.

    So, just lots of good benefits.

    BTW, I saw you track your food on another blog, good girl!
