I am willing to try anything..Well, almost anything to get the scale to move..
I know for a fact that ingesting more water is not only a healthier way to live but it can also help to drop the pounds. But it is harder said then done. A while back I decided that I would shoot for at least 90 Ounces of Water per day. The way I was going to do this was by drinking 30 ounces between meals. I have this great water jug that I got from Weight Watchers a few years ago and on the jug it has ounces 32 to be exact. So it makes it really easy to keep track of ounces.Well this only lasted for a few days. Like most things..So clearly that did not work.
A friend of mine Trish told me about a blog called Almost Gastric Bypass. He is doing a water challenge called Double Dog Dare challenge. On this challenge he works out for you what your water intake should be and even your calories for the day. How he has figured this out I am not sure yet.
But today was day one..So I started by having 30 ounces this morning and I am working on my second.
I am suppose to consume 108 ounces for optimal weight loss. I could easily have downed all my water this afternoon. But then I started thinking..Maybe I should try and spread it out through out the day. That way the water will flush out dinner calories etc..So I am gonna pace myself.
I have been really struggling with the scale. So it will be very interesting to see what happens with the scale.
I have my concerns. For one I think my calories are a bit high. Since I have MS (Multiple Sclerosis) I am pretty sedentary. I probably won't work off calories like some people will be able to. So I may need to have that adjusted. So we will see..
My weigh day has been on Wednesdays. But with this challenge it is on Sundays. So not sure yet what to do there. I liked having the 3 days to recover for anything that occurred over the weekend. But having my weigh day be on Sunday may help to keep me in check.
Looking forward to seeing some results!
