May Day Weight Loss Challenge Update

So I got on the scale this morning and I’ve lost 7 pounds. Before I get too excited, I have to remind myself that some of that (a huge part of that, probably) was due to hormonal bloating. But, 7 pounds is still 7 pounds on the scale.

How have I done this? I’ve drastically increased my water intake. I’m not a big soda drinker and never do diet sodas because my body doesn’t process the artificial sweeteners well. I adore suh-weet tea with lemon, but I don’t need the calories. And the big one…I’ve cut back on coffee. It’s really the sugar and half&half I love…the coffee is just the conduit. I’ve even mentioned (I shudder to even type it) giving up coffee completely. Again. I say again to remind myself that I have done it before and I CAN do it again. But I sooooo love my first cup of coffee in the morning. It goes hand-in-hand with my quiet time/prayer time/bible study time. I’m thinking I can cut back to one cuppa day and immediately switch to water. With lime or lemon or oranges or anything else fruity.

What do you drink first thing in the morning????

I can so do this.
