I will drink a glass of water before each reception or other event at work where I know sweets will be served. On days when there are no reception events, I will just add an extra glass of water to drink at work at any time.

Day 1 - 5/14 Full Glass. Not giving up on my commitment to healthier habits.
Day 2 - 5/16 Full Glass. Miserably stressful day replete with emotional eating, but at least I kept to the challenge.

Tyla, you are on fire! JazzyPeggy, hoping to hear an update from you soon.

Afternoon new habit chicks. tyla and Dr Geri, you are both doing well. I have been meeting my challenge but the results are not as significant as the bad things I have been doing. Stress eating, in between meal eating and pm snacking, UGH!!! Gonna have to go back to original challenge of NO PM snacking. That will be a step in the right direction. Thank you Ladies for being here to help me be accountable. Starting tonight

tyla, YA HOO!

Dr Geri, Hoping your weekend was less stressful, you can do it!

Jazz, How are you doing?

NO PM snacking
May 18th - Day 1 -

Okay, 21 days, here it goes.

I journal my calories and I want to write everything down for 21 days and stay under my limit. So here it goes!

Day 12 Well, I got on the scale this morning to see a significant drop, only to see a gain. I've been eating around 1300-1400 calories, and I've been doing Pilates everyday. Very frustrating. Wanted to eat everything in sight today. I don't know how I stopped. I want to eat now. (I must keep typing. lol)

Dr. Geri and Diana, thank you for the compliments. My clothes, however, don't reflect a change either.

Welcome, Jeannie!

Good luck to all of us!

Day 2 - 5/16 Full Glass. Miserably stressful day replete with emotional eating, but at least I kept to the challenge.
Day 3 - 5/17 Full Glass.
Day 4 - 5/18 Full Glass. I need to remember that I cannot drink caffeinated iced tea. I am so sensitive to caffeine that I haven't slept well in two days after having iced tea with lunch. Tea is a better choice for me than soda, lemonade, or horchata (good gracious, I love horchata), but it has to be herbal all the way.
Day 5 - 5/19 Full Glass. Sleep is also not helped by the fact that when I forget to drink my extra glass of water at work, I drink it afterwards at home, and then my bladder wakes me up two or three times a night. Doubling my resolve to drink the extra glass *at work.*

Hello Jeannie, welcome!

Hang in there, Tyla. Even if the scale hasn't budged lately, you are still making a good choice for your body by exercising. You are reaping benefits other ways, even if you might not be seeing it in the fit of your clothes yet. Don't give up!

Thank you, Dr. Geri and Diana, for your support.

Day 6 - 5/20 Full Glass.
Day 7 - 5/21 Full Glass. This challenge is probably too easy, but pretty much the only thing I can manage at the moment.

Tyla, I'm impressed with how quickly you started over and are already making progress on your new challenge.
