That's right, 4 days and not a drop of soda has crossed these lips. I honestly have to say water is my main drink now. So far this week I have drank 308 oz of water! I bet I used to drink double that in sodas and NO water. I noticed today my knuckles on my hands aren't as dry as they usually are. They still are a little dry but they used to look like a dry desert, all cracked and scaly. My knees also. It's really amazing what water can do.
Water is also the main contributor to my weight loss. I peeked at the scale again this morning and it was a whopping 3 lbs down. So that's a total of 7.4 lbs in about 4 days. I'll take that all day long. I can't wait until Tuesday when I can get an official weigh in. I'm shooting for the big 10 and I honestly think it is achievable. I know its not safe but it definitely is a nice start to my journey.
I ran into the old back pain again today on my walk but it didn't stop me from making my goal. I REALLY can't wait until something as simple as walking doesn't make me feel like I'm going to be crippled afterwards. I know this can only be achieved over time and its going to take ME doing it. I've always wanted to run. I have never in my adult life run for any amount of time. I think that's going to be my major goal is to one day actually go out to a track somewhere, and just run. Not going to happen before I can walk painlessly so I think I'm going to look into a fundraiser walk that I can sign up for sometime in the future and put my money where my mouth is. It'll give me something to strive for because if I fall back and don't do my walks, well then it's gonna get really weird come walk time. It'll keep me motivated and honest. More on that probably tomorrow.
This ones going to be short though cause again I'm tired. But today's stats were 6347 steps, 75 oz of water and 2.99 miles walked. I'll be bumping up my goals next week so let's get thing thing done!
Here are my photos of the day:
Y'all be great and drink a big glass of H2O for me!
