Just Drink The Water

I filled up my water at 7:30 this morning and I took a picture. This is me declaring that I am taking the first step toward losing weight again. Today, on a Saturday, I am starting anew. 

After weeks of eating poorly; after weeks of being fairly complacent with my efforts; after weeks of low motivation; after weeks of eating emotionally at nights; after weeks of aches and pains due to unnecessary inflammation; after weeks of being a barely active couch potato; after weeks of wanting more for myself but not doing much about it; today, on a Saturday, I'm taking the first step. I am going to drink half of my body weight in water today.

It doesn't matter what day I start / take this first step, it doesn't matter if I take this first step just to fall back down and have to take it again tomorrow; what matters is that I take this first step every morning. I need to just drink the water. I need to fill my water bottle once, and then again, and then again. It's the easiest thing I can do to lose weight and yet, I haven't been doing it. 

I'm starting with this first step, today. I'm filling my water bottle and I'm making water a priority today. Will you?


  1. Great way to start!!!!!!! And 'now' is always the perfect time to matter what day of the week 'now' is!!!!

  2. I'm there with you! Getting up again tomorrow with a fresh slate!

  3. Are multivitamins ok when you are on a diet? My sister just tried the military diet and upon seeing the choices of low carb food available in the free meal plan, she saw it was nutritious. The well-balanced meal is rich in proteins, good fat and the body is well hydrated with water. That's why when she stopped her vitamins for a while, her energy is still up and her body is well-nourished. For more information, check out this site:
