Day 1-April 21 The ONLY thing that got me to drink that last bottle of water was this challenge. Hating water right now, lol.

Thanks for the welcome, ladies! Good luck with your new challenges.

For my second challenge, I hope to maintain the Just One policy for another 21 days: just one sweet after lunch and just one after dinner. I will also add a Drink No Calories policy to my new challenge. I will drink only water, tea, and green smoothies.

Day 1 - 4/21 Just One + Drink No Calories

jamsk8r, I know I've been on Facebook for too long when I read your message and started looking for the "Like" button. I like that you honored the challenge, and hope that your body and taste buds start appreciating the water so you don't hate how much of it you're drinking.

4/19 - Day 1 - No Snacking - although I ate all day long. Luckily tomorrow is a new day and a new week =New Beginning.
4/20 - Day 2 - No Snacking - still eating too much during the day(30 mins ex -am)
4/21 - Day 3 - No Snacking - gaining weight & starting to get mad =hoping this means better focus for both food and exerise, ugh!!(25 mins ex -am)
4/22 - Day 4 - No Snacking - Today I am mad - I can turn this bad slump around. Today I will eat healthy foods, drink water and will take a half hour walk with my dog. I will make me the first priority.

Too funny about the face book comment. Go ladies - great starts!

Well, I'm on a one-day streak, lol. Starting over, since Tuesday I totally forgot about the water (probably conveniently, lol) and didn't pick it back up. Will try a restart today and see how I do. :P

4/26 - Day 7 - No Snacking, I am stuffed from potluck foods today. I have taken a probiotic and will ride my recumbent bike tonight.

Cheryl - so glad you are not giving up. If you have trouble getting the volume in, try a lower volume and work your way up. Wishing you success.

Katrina89, what about something like a challenge where you can eat a sweet, but the moment it isn't blowing your mind with deliciousness, you take no more bites of it? I know my tendency is to eat something until there is nothing left of it on the plate, even if I start finding the taste increasingly underwhelming with every bite, so breaking that habit might be a nice gradual entry into this.

Okay, I think I've finally got this water thing dialed in. I was feeling pretty overwhelmed when faced with drinking a couple of huge-looking water bottles of water, and almost gave it up for hopeless. Then yesterday, while putting dishes away, I saw my boy's old A&W mini-mug glass in the cabinet. I thought...that looks tiny, wonder how much it holds? Turned out to be exactly 4 oz if I topped it off, so I took a sticky note, wrote the numbers 1-16 on it, and by 6pm, I'd had my 64 oz of water, lol. I just kept the little mug by the kitchen sink and it was easy to down a couple whenever I thought of it, plus the sticky note was motivation, because every time I drank 4 oz of water I got to take a sharpie to one of the numbers. Today, I was done by 1:30pm. Probably sounds silly, but it's working, so I'll stick with that till I get to hating water less than I do now. I'm actually going to pass on posting to the challenge thread daily, but appreciate the motivation to get started with the water.

Day 6 - 4/27 Just One + Drink No Calories. My husband helped me make it through the weekend (with humor, as he joked as we went through the aisle of cookies and brownies at the grocery store, "Your challenge is just one clamshell, right?"), and even expressed interest in moving to a Drink No Calories policy at restaurants for himself.

....and it's two-for-one day in the 21 day challenge...well, one of my NY's resolutions was to give up liquid donuts, but wasn't sure for how long. After 100 days (!), I finally had a glass of wine while watching Mad Men (something about that show just drives me to the bottle, ha!). Ok, I'll go for another 100 days, in 21 day increments.
