“Oh my! I really need to lose weight. I can’t believe that I look like this in the mirror! I think I will skip breakfast and just have a small salad for lunch. Hmmmm, I think I will have some soup for dinner and that’s all I will eat today. That should work out just fine. That will really help me lose this extra weight.” Now, just how many times have you said something like that to yourself?

Let me ask, how many people keep a weight loss journal? No you say? In return you might ask, Why should I keep a weight loss journal? To be honest, it is almost imperative to keep track of your success, and the best way is through journaling.
Do you know how easy it is to “forget’ all the pain and suffering you have gone through to get to where you are now? What prompted you to start on your weight loss quest to begin with? Typically pain and suffering. That’s right. When you get to a point when you are no longer emotionally disturbed and distressed by your excess weight, then it’s critical that you keep your weight loss journal up-to-date.

Water is critical for your body to function properly. In fact, it is said that each person should consume their weight in ounces divided by 2, on a daily basis!
