I carry a 20 oz container full of water all day long. It saves on bottles of water. I have a water softner. I never leave home for more than a couple of hours with out at least two containers. i also make sure to drink 5-8 oz of water within 30 mins of my main meals. I feel full and eat less.

I used to always feel the need to stop for a diet soda whenever I stopped by a convenience store for gasoline. Now, I go ahead and get the ice, and then fill with water. I am saving not putting the chemicals in my body and getting 4 glasses of water by the time it is done. I still feel as if I have bought myself a treat!
The disappointment in failing is too much so I fall back to the basics. Concentrate on getting 8 glasses of water, exercise (10 min), and 3-5 servings of fruit/veggies every day. It ALWAYS works & within days I'm ready to re-incorporate all the healthy habits I've learned to date!
