May Day Weight Loss Challenge- Weigh-in # 5

Weight lost this week- 1.5 lbs
Weight lost since the start of the challenge- 5.5 lbs
Total weight loss since Hailey was born- 38.5 lbs

I had a really good week. I exercised everyday. My food choices were pretty healthy. I have finally reached that 5 pound loss which means I can get my button. WooHoo!!

Once again I did not drink enough water, I really struggle with that. So, again for this week my goal is going to be to drink more water- at least 8 glasses each day.

Time to go check in at Tales From the Scales.

16.5 pounds to go!

Oh, I'm so glad you had a good week! Congrats on that!

As for drinking a lot of water, I find that if I keep a big bottle of it next to me (at work) I drink a lot more because it's there. Good luck on your efforts to drink more.

Keep up the good work!

Nice work! Congrats on the button. I am pretty good at my water, but when I was first starting I would make myself drink only water (except a glass of orange juice or milk for breakfast) until I met my goal and then I would drink something else. I find the summer the easiest because I am always on the go and make sure to have a bottled water with me. Check out the crystal light single packets to add to water bottles if you want to have a little bit more flavor.
