Weight Loss - My Journey

30 Day Water Challenge

I want to take this blog post to take a look back on my health and my life.

I have every anxiety disorder in the book, PTSD, depression – pretty much my life hates me.  I understand too.  Water is my worst enemy, I have poor eating habits, and I drink soda like it’s my best friend.

I realized yesterday that it has to change.  I look at myself in the mirror and I can pinpoint EVERY flaw of mine and I used to think that there was nothing I could do.  For some reason, I looked at myself in the mirror and realized I have SO MUCH I can do to fix my flaws.

My life needs major makeover.  LIKE BIG TIME.  So, as of midnight last night, I gave up soda.  Cold turkey.  My mom, who understands because she gave up cigarettes A LONG TIME AGO, stocked me up with ibuprofen.  I have decided that with my breakup with my long time relationship with soda, I should start the 30 Day Water Challenge.  

Remember, I really despise water.  I got some Mio and it really helps with my water drinking.  The 30 Day Water Challenge is where you drink 64 ounces of water every day for 30 days.  Of course, this should happen every day but I am always up for a challenge and hopefully this will jump start my habit of drinking more water.  I heard it even helps you lose weight.  I am not using a special water bottle marked for goals throughout the day, but I do have an awesome tracker for my phone to help me keep track (it’s called Waterlogged).

So, I pulled out my scale today and weighed myself.  I figured out I weigh 148.8 lbs, give or take a kitten (who wouldn’t leave me alone long enough to weigh myself.)  My goal weight is to get to 120 lbs.

Off I go!  Time to kick some water drinking butt!  I’ve already drank my first 16.9 ounces while writing this!  If you’re doing the water challenge, come here for support or to track with me!

  1. I normally put a big bottle of water on my desk in the morning and sip it slowly throughout the day. I find it much harder to gulp it in a few minutes. Good luck with the quest to healthy eating!

    1. Thanks! I work in retail so it’s hard for me to go in back and grab a drink of water. I’m trying to work out an easier method for me besides chugging it on my breaks.
