Drinking Water

It's Wednesday, so a weight-loss post.  I'm still hesitant to do a weigh-in - afraid that there will be no progress.  They say it is much easier to maintain weight than to lose it.

Years ago, a friend wanted to lose weight and she was always overly pre-occupied with the amount of water she drank.  She thought that the more water you drank the more you weighed.  This is probably true: if you drink 2 litres of water and then weigh yourself, you would likely weigh more - about a small container of milk more.

Fast forward to now and we know that water is good for you and that you should actually drink more rather than less.  I've always been a person who doesn't drink much of any liquid - small bladder.  But I do get dizzy and light-headed a lot which people say is due to dehydration.

So, I'm trying to drink more water.  It's supposed to help with weight loss if you drink a glass or even two before each meal by making you feel full before you even start to eat.

  2. I've tried drinking plenty of water during a meal and I think I over did it because it only made me feel sick? :/

    Narda I sent an email yesterday replying to your question. I sent it to pinkcalico.com@gmail.com but that can't be right?? Can you please send me your email address. It's a long email so I didn't want to post it in a comment. Thanks :)

    1. They gave us water vasos @ work complete with a straw, so I'm trying to drink at least one (along with a weak tea)
