My Weight Loss Journey: Drinking Water To Lose Weight



Hi guys,
               I am happy to report that I have lost 5 pounds so far. I have 30 more to go. I still have a few things that I want to eliminate from my diet, like sugar, salad dressings, butter, and mayo. I am thinking about replacing mayo with avocado, and eliminate the others. My body also crashed from exhaustion on Friday. I slept from 12:00 P.M until 2:30 P.M after our walk (hubby and I). I went back to bed at 4:00 P.M and woke up at 10:00 PM. I felt so tired I could barely work that night. I took a 30 - minute break, and I was still breaking after my break was over. I felt miserable.


              There is one more thing that I have been doing: Drinking water. We don't keep carbonated drinks like Coke or Ginger Ale in the house, but we all love Lipton iced tea. Replacing my sweet tea with water is a big plus because water has zero calorie.

Drinking water before each meal prevents me from overeating, which cuts my calorie intake. Dringking a lot of water also stops my body from retaining water, which may help in getting a more accurate number on the scale.

How I drink my water
  1. I drink two glasses of water with lemon in the morning.
  2. I add some cayenne pepper to my water before I eat lunch.
  3. I squeeze some lime juice and add a little bit of brown sugar in my water instead of drinking juice or iced tea during dinner.
  4. I try to drink iced water when I can to help me burn calories. 
         I am still going strong on my journey. I actually enjoy drinking water now because it's helping me lose weight.  Somebody had to remind me to drink water before, like watching a Dr. Oz show, but now I make it one of my priorities.

        Do you know any other benefits of water? Share them with me below.

  2. Drinking water keeps you hydrated especially during a workout since you lose a lot of water through sweat. Good job on your loss so far. I'm cheering you on. www.myrebornhair.blogspot.com

  5. When we sweat, toxins are released which could result in increased acne. Drinking more water can help curb that. Good luck on your journey!

  6. Drinking water is still a thing I need to do more...I'm lazy when it comes to that! I used to drink 'lemon hot water' every morning, but quit doing that for some reason. Thanks for reminding me how important it is. :-)

  7. Water is almost the only thing I drink...when I have a craving for something else, I have it but overall I've made drastic improvements with the amount of water I consume. The biggest difference I see is in my skin.
