Secrets of Success

  • Yep!
    One week I went crazy with water and I lost quite a bit.
    I make sure I drink from a small bottle so I can get up from my desk and walk down the corridor to refill from the water machine.
    I try to do this 3-4 times a day as I can get a bit of excersize and water at the same time.

  • Great advice. I'm close to my ideal weight, so I've hit a plateau one month into trying to be more healthy. :( But I like the idea of increasing water and drinking green tea, has anyone ever tried green tea supplements? emoticon - by GHINNC

  • I find that drinking my body weight water is helping me a lot to get rid of the pounds and also drinking my green tea and oolong tea at work and when I get home and yes before I go to bed.

    Keep up the good work. - by TURTLERAE55
