Wow, I am on a run here.

On the weekend I found a few more older clothes that don't only fit but are too big already.

I had to punch new holes into two belts yesterday.

I made it through the morning without a snack today!

Today is the first day, where I managed to drink 1.5 liters (50oz) during work hours.

I didn't forget to eat a snack in the afternoon.

Small steps for me...

YAY me! ;-)

Whoo-hoo!!!! That is so great!

I do hope you plan to keep some of the old clothes for comparison so you know how far you've come!

That's so great Josey!! Keep it up!

I had an issue with water intake too, but now I drink 3-4 litres a day. My secret? A water bottle with a straw in it. I will drink just about anything if it has a straw in it, I don't know why, but I have always been that way. If someone asks me to hold their drink, and it has a straw, sometimes I don't even think about it, I just take a sip...so I knew that was the key to getting tons of water in me! LOL

OhMyDogs- Yes! Same secret here- straws. I bought reusable straws from the local dollar store and I've been getting in a ton of water per day.

Thanks guys.

I will definitely keep some fat pants as a reminder!!

Drinking with a straw sound interesting. I gotta try this. So far I found out that drinking from a bottle works better than glasses. And the bigger the bottle the better.

I'm all about the bobble water bottle. It filters the water as you drink, and they're soooo cute and they come in a million colors. They're so fun, it makes drinking water easy and it tastes good too. I could even drink well water out of it!!

Oh boy! Another NSV. What a week!
Today I was wearing the smallest jeans I had in my closet. They are tight but not too tight (no muffin top!). They are also the oldest I have. I bought them after I lost 44 lbs in 2002. Lowest weight ever. I am still about 10 lbs away from that weight but the jeans fit!
I am soooo excited.
