Day 2 Son of Double Dog Challenge: Another 1/5th down and woke up thirsty. Huh?
Yesterday's calories went over the limit by 7. Not that bad. Would like to stay nicely under today. Dat's da plan.
Water yesterday was 168 ounces, well above the accelerated level of 135 oz.
Seems that my rate of loss if I stay close to limit and minimally exercise and drink tons of water is about 1/5th of a pound a day. About 1.5 a week. That's above my bloggy goal for each week and a good rate, a healthful rate, but it won't get me to the 234 that I'd ideally make on December 8. BUT...I have faith and optimism and will eat and drink and let the scale tell the tale.
In any case, as long as it goes DOWN, I am happy.
Drinking the water does take effort and planning (gotta constantly refill Pur pitcher, gotta make sure I drink before and after meals, etc), but it's NOT HARD. Nowhere near as hard as I thought. That's an epiphany.
I heard from Ann that the body adjusts and the bathroom runs decrease. Interesting that, if so. I know that, oddly, I've woken up thirsty two days in a row. I have no idea why that is, since I'm well hydrated, beaucoup hydrated. Maybe now my body is getting used to having more water, so I sense when I've goen 8 hours without? Mebbe?
