    @deepwoodslady, I'm excited about it as well! There is so much more known about the lymphatic system now. And sidenote: Caffeine has been found to not be as dehydrating as once thought, although it is a mild diuretic. Count coffee as 2/3 fluid. I never believed that coffee was dehydrating, it's mostly water! I just have a glass of water between cups of coffee if possible.

    I'm posting even though I feel a bit embarrassed. I am trying to work on convincing myself it's ok to eat more, and I'm seeing the doctor on Thursday. 1.6 kg from normal weight BMI, so I can no longer say it's because I've got a lot to lose. I hope this post doesn't annoy anyone - sincere apologies if it does and let me know. I'll stop posting in that case.

    (I've changed the date format because it was confusing me as the order is different in NZ.)

    @tiabirdie56 Great to know on the coffee since I do drink quite a bit of it in the morning and early afternoon. I will knock 1/3 off each cup's count before documenting!

    My name is Tish
    Challenge Starting Weight ~ 177.2
    Challenge Goal Weight ~167 - 1/2 pound per week

    November 20, 2018 ~ 177.2 - 42 lbs left to reach my ultimate goal. It was 40 lbs on Nov. 9th when 175 appeared, then was rudely replaced by 177. Lol. This number loves me.

    11/27 ~ 178.8 - Been doing everything I should not the last 5 days; eating late in the day (8pm) eating bread, no electrolytes. One last croissant beckoning me today😊 and hopefully
    it's over.

    11/30 - 178.2 - Lol. Looks like I lost weight. Not. I prefer Wednesday's weight, 174.8😅 but obviously not that much since I ate pretzels last night. Keto carb havoc!

    December 4 - 😒 178.8 - That's rough , but better than yesterday. I think I should post daily weights for December.

    I find it sadly ironic that the focus of the week was water and my water intake was AWFUL this week. I think that might be the reason for my sad progress. I think I’m holding onto a bunch of water. I might get myself a new water bottle to inspire me to drink more. Does anyone else work like that? I love getting new ones :D

    WATER CHALLENGE

    Friday 11/30/2018
    32 ounces of plain water
    10 ounces Tish’s Super Charged Parsley Lemon Water
    24 ounces Black Coffee
    10 ounces Bulletproof coffee with coconut oil, butter and salted caramel skinny syrup
    11 ounces of chocolate protein smoothie made with Slimfast protein powder, Six Stars protein mix, 1 tsp of benefiber and 10 ounces of unsweetened Almond Milk.

    Total Liquids. 87 oz.
    Clearly I need more straight water. They say that caffeine is dehydrating. I drink a lot of it in the form of mainly coffees. That is okay as long as I get my water drinks in. Clearly I need to work on this!



    Saturday 12/01/2018
    50 ounces of plain water
    30 ounces of black coffee

    Total Liquids 80 oz.

    I managed to up the plain water during all of my household chaos (new wall-to-wall carpet going in every room]. However, my overall liquids were down because I didn’t drink any of the special drinks I usually try to incorporate.
    *************************************************************************************

    Sunday 12/02/18
    24 ounces of plain water
    50 ounces of black coffee

    Total Liquids 74 oz.

    Away from home for my DGS’s 1st birthday. I do not drink our well water in our area and forgot to take any bottled. I stuck to coffee most of the day and evening (since it’s boiled/heated I trust it more). I will be home today working and will be more able to meet the challenge of drinking more water.
    *************************************************************************************


    Monday 12/03/18
    20 ounces of plain water
    30 NET ounces of black coffee
    17 ounces of zero calorie/zero carb Sparkling ICE flavored water (limited edition flavor: Cranberry Frost)
    7 NET ounces of bulletproof coffee using my recipe & hazelnut skinny syrup


    Total Liquids 74 oz.
    I am going to work harder at getting in more plain water today by carrying around a cup & straw.

    December 4 178.6 Exactly back to where I started which is a good thing. Now, to get this ball rolling!
