Current amount lost: 6 pounds
This week's challenge: Water!
While I did switch over to water as my drink of choice, it turns out that I hadn't been drinking as much as Nicole does. So, I've made it my goal to drink one glass in the early a.m. (sort of like what others do with coffee), one before lunch, one during lunch, one in the afternoon/before supper, one during supper, and one after supper. Since doing this, my rate of weight loss has increased dramatically.
This week's success: Water :)
Having developed a taste for lemon in my water, I bought a bag of lemons, sliced them up and put them in the refrigerator. Now, everytime I drink a glass of water, I squeeze the juice from a slice (not half - the whole thing!) and toss it in the glass. I've even done this to a bottle of water. I can't tell if it's the flavor or the appearance, but it's definitely helping!
This week's insight: Judy Halliday, author of Thin Within, wrote about how we tend to think "This is my body, I can do with it as I please." (see pages 110-111 below) Christians have been "bought with a high price. Therefore glorify God in your body" 1 Corinthians 6:20. Remembering this helps me stay on track!
