The biggest thing for me when it came to both midsection weight and hormonal fluctuations was making sure I was consistently, properly hydrated. Rule of thumb: take your current weight in pounds, divide by 2. That's how many ounces of water your body needs for basic maintenance each day. HINT: if you take your weight and divide by 16, you'll get that in number of 8 oz. glasses per day.

Yes, Spark recommends at least 8 a day but that's meant to be an average/minimum. I think about it this way...we've been taught all our lives that the human body is 70% water. 70% of 218 pounds (my start weight) is way more than 70% of the 164 I am now so it should take way more to maintain that than it does to maintain my current level. Make sense?

Welcome to the team.
I am sure you are going to love SPARK PEOPLE. All the nutrition trackers, fitness trackers and support that you need.

I would suggest you increase whatever exercise you are doing by 10 minutes a day. Gradually increase this to 15-20 and you will be feeling better in no time at all.
