Alright this week we are going to focus on WATER... WATER is a huge part of weight loss..

Challenge Goal: Drink half of your weight in water.......
(EXAMPLE) I weigh 252. Half of my weight is 126...... So I need to drink 126 oz of water each day

Can you drink half your weight in water?

Who is with me??
I have researched some interesting things about the greatness of water.. Below is what I found (part of link: http://www.dumblittleman.com/2007/07/9-great-reasons-to-drink-water-and-how.html)

    I need to improve my water anyway so this is a great incentive. I now weight 192.5 so I need to do 96.5 ounces. That seems like a lot but I know when I drink water I feel better so I am going to give it a shot. I will fill up my water bottle right after I hit send

    Have a good week everyone

    I just saw this...but I'm totally doing it! I weigh about 217 right now...so about 109 ounces...and that's 14 glasses of water a day (rounding up!). so far I'm doing great! I tend to drink at least 18 glasses a day, so I think I'm good!
