High Quality H2O

Gosh... I have gained back 20 pounds of the 40 I have lost.  Yikes!  Winter is over and it's time to shed that weight off!  I have made a goal to lose 20 pounds by my brother's wedding in June.  If I do it right, I should be able to lose 25.  It's going to consist of going back to drinking almost a gallon (12 cups or 96 ounces) of water a day.

So here is a heads up.  I plan to post my water intake daily.  I know it's boring and mundane, but it will help keep me accountable.  Walking (outside of the 10,000 steps I put in at work) will need to start back up.  I will need to walk at least 3 times a week for at least 40 minutes - 120 minutes a week.  That should be good starting out.  I am sure I will increase activity once I get going.

I am starting to feel better because I have written down a plan.  Now I need to follow thru and will need some help!  If you have any suggestions or tips, I am all ears!  I appreciate and thank you in advance.

Today's Water Intake:  7 out of 12 (will get 2 more before bed)

I suspect I will be in the bathroom quite a bit in the next several weeks until my body adjusts.

Hope you all had a great day!

Good luck with your weight loss plan.

I could never drink that much water. I tried one time to drink that much and I spent the whole day in the bathroom. : ) I really did go every 15 minutes.
The doctor told me that you can drink too much water. The way to know if you're getting enough is if your urine is clear. The darker it is the more water you need.
Just a thought...
