Today, I have been doing a lot of thinking. It started with my friend Mary posting on Facebook that it was * Thirsty Thursday*
I have NOT been drinking my water....not even since I started over 2 weeks ago to watch what I was eating.
So I decided to once again

I also decided to start with small goals~~ and since it was *Thirsty Thursday* I promised myself that on every Thursday I WILL drink at least 8 glasses of plain old water!

# 2.....

Was to NOT eat after 10 pm at night. This gives me time to eat our late supper ( 6 to 7 pm ) and still have time to eat something if I need it.


Was NOT to eat carbs such as more then one meal per day!

I know these are very simple goals but I feel that it is what I need right now in order to stay on..............

Today~~ I felt I had

BUT~~ I also know that as I tread back on this healthy journey again that I am going to need

In saying all this~~ I also feel strongly that~~

I also firmly believe that our expectations of ourselves are way out of whack with what we expect from others.....

So I have decided that what I would say to a friend or family....I will now say to myself!


My dear Dr. Seuss says it best~~

So for now I say to myself!!!!!

To get away from all this seriousness....Whoever said~~SIZE does not count??

    The simple goals are the best and often the most effective. My water trick: I use a 32 oz bottle, so I know I only have to drink two. lol Also I put in fresh mint, or sometimes lemon or cucumber, to add a little bit of flavour.
