I remember drinkning a lot of Kool-Aid, and sometimes sodas, and Icees (aka Slurpies). THere was soda factory in my home town. You'd get a giant wooden crate to fill with any flavors you wanted, ginger, blackberry, cola, rootbear, cream soda, orange, etc. But that was a special treat. I must've drunk water, but certainl don't remember it.

My DB & SIL give my 10 yr old nephew Gatorade & the like when he plays his basketball/soccer/baseball games, but I do see him drinking a lot of water. SO I'm hopeful.

Stay calm and carry on.

Makes sense, if they are drinking water then they are not drinking sodas and eating junk.

what an eye opener.............thanks for sharing...........


“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

VERY interesting studies and recommendations coming out recently indicating that children in schools with easy access to water are less prone to childhood obesity...of course not such news to us in the SparkPeople community! :-)
