Day 6

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

I can't believe tomorrow will be one week! emoticon So today I thought I'd just post some of my favorite quotes. So here ya go.

Weight gain doesn't happen overnight. Neither does weight loss.

If it doesn't challenge you it doesn't change you.

You must begin to think of yourself as becoming the person you want to be.

Believe it to achieve it.

You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only option left.

Ok well that is it for now and i will keep everyone posted.

5 pounds in 5 days!!!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

So I have lost 5 pounds in 5 days i can't believe it!!!!! I am beyond excited!! It is takeing a lot of hard work and determination but i know i can do this!!! emoticon emoticon One thing i know i need to work on alot though is drinking more water I'm averaging 1 bottle a water a day just sipping on it all day long because i really dont drink that much. I've had this issue before. Last winter i was almost hospitalized simple because i had gotten so dehydrated they couldnt even draw blood because my vains kept collapsing! emoticon So any tips on getting more water a day into my routine are welcome!!! Well that is all for now Happy 2013!

    When I can't face any more water, I drink Crystal Light. It's 5 calories per cup. But I have to make the 2 quart size and refregerate it before I drink it. Cold is good; warm, not so much.

    Hi there - how are you doing?

Being well hydrated is important.

I get that you aren't a fan of water. It's not my favorite thing but I will drink it when it is cold.

Try starting off with something flavored. My opinion is that if the choice is drinking more water that has been flavored with something (no-/low-calorie) or not drinking water much at all, then by all means drink something flavored.

That 5 pounds is mostly water weight. Losing 5 pounds of fat in 5 days would require 17000 calories of deficit which isn't going to happen. No worries. Just make sure you drink lots of fluids.

But the encouraging thing is that fat loss can absolutely happen. Stick to the process and you'll be successful.

And yes, you CAN do this!

Make it a great day!
Matt

    I agree with maryjean as far as using flavored water. Congrats on the weight loss, you should start slowing down soon as far as weight loss because the first comes off quickly due to water weight loss.

  Congrats on losing weight! But do be careful because you don't want to lose water weight. I am not fond of drinking water as is myself. I drink a lot of iced tea with lemon and truvia. I don't know if you would care for iced tea, but maybe there is some calorie-free, water-based drink you might like better than plain water. Good luck!

    Great work! I weigh myself daily as well, mainly because it is a dual motivator - if I lost weight it encourages me to keep going, if I gained it pressures me to work harder! Can't lose either way! Like you, I'm brand spanking new to this and just lost 6 pounds my first week. The accomplishment really pushes your enthusiasm so keep going!

  Good for you keeping track and not exceeding your daily calories and the sweets too. No easy feat.
Good luck and all the best on meeting your exercise goals in the upcoming new year.
