I sure hope so! But, I am so glad I'm not drinking soda all day now. I can see a big difference in my skin and my face doesn't look red and blotchy anymore.

The need to use the restroom will eventually regulate itself

I'm worried about how much I have to pee now! When I go back to work, I won't be able to use the restroom whenever I need to, and I need to ALL the time now lol.

Over-use of lip products itself can cause a cycle of dependence, too. Even if I drink enough water, if I apply chapstick regularly over the course of a few months, I start actually requiring it to keep my lips from drying out. When I didn't drink enough *and* I used chapstick daily, I actually had to put Vaseline on my lips every night before bed or they would crack and bleed. I forced myself to stop doing it, and the dependence went away relatively quickly.

Since I started drinking more water, I've realized that I really *do* have a tiny bladder. I have to pee all the time, sometimes more than once an hour. But it's a good trade-off, because I don't feel nearly as inclined to suck down diet soda and the like.

Since I started eating better, I've realized that I don't really need nearly as much food to feel full. 3oz of chicken and a good-sized pile of broccoli is genuinely satisfying, which is something I never thought I'd say. I can still put away a lot of food at once if I let myself, but I don't *need* to like I thought I did. There's still a running joke in my husband's family that I'm a bottomless pit (it's not malicious, really, as they speak of themselves the same way), but it's not actually true anymore.

Since I started exercising every day, I've realized that a) it's actually kind of fun and b) I sleep a lot better.

I still use mine outdoors in the wind or sun, but I understand what you mean.
There are little things that you take for granted, and then all of a sudden you realize that you are not doing them, or needing them any longer.

It's a great feeling of discovery.

I can't remember the last time I reached for my chapstick! This is kind of a big deal for me, as I'm a bit of a chapstick addict lol. I'm guessing it has to do with the water I've been drinking. My body is now hydrated from the INSIDE and doesn't need the lip goo anymore. I seriously can't remember going more than a few hours without chapstick but it's probably been a week now.

What little thing have you noticed because of drinking your water or eating better?
