Wednesday Weigh-In & Weekly Challenge

Today is weigh in day, and I was down 0.8!  I knew I wasn't going to have the loss that I had last week, simply because last week's loss was pretty big.  And I had to take like 3 pictures of the scale before I could get one without my toes clinging for dear life.  I need to work on that, seems like a balance issue.

I want to start giving myself little mini-challenges to focus each week (Wednesday to Wednesday).  I figure a week is a good way to try out these goals, and if they suck or make me miserable, then they are done with.  On the other hand, if they make me feel good, then they are yet another thing I can change in my life.  These are my goals for the next week:

  1. Drink 24 ounces of water with every meal
  2. Drink unlimited hot tea after dinner in lieu of nightly snack
So, my water consumption has gotten better, but I really want to try to get it in around meal times to help myself feel fuller, and to get in a better schedule with water consumption.  I actually like water, but tend to space on drinking it!  Meals seem like a good way to get in a schedule with that.

So, for the snack goal...  I tend to feel pretty full if I have hot drinks, so I'd like to see if I could be satisfied doing this at night instead of constantly popping popcorn or making some kind of dessert.  There is nothing wrong with having treats at night, but I also don't want to depend on it or expect it all the time.  I am so very close to my 30 pounds lost goal, and I really want to try to achieve that within the next 2 weeks, and I want to see not having a snack at night helps this or not.  We'll see how this goes for the week, it's probably going to be harder than the water goal!
