H2O

Every week, I am focusing on a different healthy habit/ WW principle so that I can really master the basics, to make the most of my health. Last week I focused on Power Foods so this week I am focusing on Water.

I already drink a lot of water, more than the normal person, but water is a HUGE part of weight loss! My friend Tasha over at Operation Smoking Hot swears by drinking water. A lot of people worry about "water weight" but that is actually not gained by drinking too much water. It's actually quite the opposite! When you don't drink enough water, your body holds on to it, thus water weight. Weight watchers suggests drunking at least 48 ounces a day to keep you hydrated, but I have also read to drink half your weight in ounces, which for me would be 137 ounces. I have a 16 ounce water bottle so that would be... 8 and a half bottles a day. I will have to pee a lot...

But this week, I am going to focus on drinking between 48 and 137 ounces of water each day!
