I can't remember the last time I was in the 180's!!! I am so proud of myself right now! I had a HUGE loss this week! I think its because I am finally off Doctors orders and back to my swimming workouts! Also I think it has to do with my water consumption! I read an article that talked about how much water you actually need to keep your body hydrated and for me it was WAY more than 8 cups a day!

In order to figure out how much water YOU need you take your body weight ( in lbs) and divide by 2 this gives you the number of ounces of water you need per day. If you take that number and divide by 8 ounces per cup this gives you the number of cups of water you need per day to stay hydrated. Here are my calculations for example:

188.8 lbs / 2 = 94.4 ounces of water I need per day

94.4 ounces of water / 8 ounces per cup = 11.8 cups of water per day

So I should be drinking almost 12 cups a day!

Once I increased my water consumption it helped keep my appetite at bay and the lbs started coming off consistently! I am very proud of myself and all my hard work this morning! Spark has helped me so much! all of my spark friends are fabulous! and I don't know what I do with out you guys! thanks again for the support and encouragement! you all are so wonderful!

    Holy moly on the weight loss! emoticon

    Thanks for the water tip. I realize I tend to drink around 10-12 cups a day, but I will do the calculation to figure out exactly what I should be consuming.

    Keep up the awesome work! emoticon
