Cando Day 2: Water

I CAN drink 64 oz of water

I CAN fill this 32 oz mug up twice and drink it in one day, everyday.
(Mug cover from this post).

This morning's stats and thoughts:
148.2
(I must find better lighting in the morning.)

The below chart will be updated with each weigh-in.
Please note, I have allowed for a stable weight over Thanksgiving versus a loss.
We are hosting this year, but we CAN provide a healthy meal for our guests.
Goals are set at 5 lbs the first week and 1.5 lbs per subsequent week.
Weigh-ins are daily for one week and then weekly until goal is reached.
Adjustments along the way may be needed as I suspect that 120 may be too low for me.
I won't know until I get close, so until then I will follow the doctor's advise and forge on.

Hey, I discovered that if I create a really narrow chart, 
like the one above, the weight loss looks very dramatic. ;-)

Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments and support. 
I have replied to all of you unless you are a no-reply commenter.
Please know that all comments mean so much whether I can reply via email or not!

Again THANK YOU!

  1. I'm with you on the water! I NEED to drink more water 'cause I'm drinking way to little each day. so I will support you on this and follow along with you!
    And I too need to loose a lot of weight. Maybe I'll join you in that journey as well, only after all the festivities the coming month.

  2. I drink a ton of water a day, it is my favorite drink to have. Good for you on the weight loss, my goal should be more exercise. I am so bad at that. Keep up the great work.

  3. I find it difficult to drink large quantities of plain water so I may just have to hook up a nice hooky mug cover to encourage me! I love your chart - and keep it narrow - it's encouraging to see how close your goal looks like that & encouragement and motivation are closely related. E x

  4. Oh good for you starting your new healthy plan! And Happy Birthday as well. Hmmm your scale numbers look a lot like mine. Not so bad if your say 5'7 inches, but at 5'2 (me) I'm looking "fluffy".(I'm cutting way back on the carbs.) Keep up the good work, I will be cheering you on!

  5. Great idea with that chart. I know you're serious! I drink several glasses of iced tea all day, plus a bottle of water, and at least 1 smoothie at night.
