Over the last 2 weeks I’ve decided to try something that I try once in awhile to see if it will help me lose weight. I was pretty set to do it but knew it would be a challenge again, because it always is. I decided….to drink water.
My water drinking is very limited. During the weekdays I maybe have 2 small cups. I do drink tea but someone told me that wasn’t the same. Also, I do drink vodka with seltzer so I thought that counted as well…but I was told no.
This all started when my partner recently asked me how much I weighed and wanted to know why I wouldn’t get on the scale so they could see. I just said it was none of their business, but they convinced me to do it- in a weeks time. So I decided that I was going to run and exercise and pound water. I have a 32oz. water bottle and a 32 oz cup for home. I also downloaded the plant nanny app (check it out, it’s kinda cool).
I was pounding water at work (and gagging). Why doesn’t it have a taste? Why do we need so much of it? Anyways, I had pee coming out of my ears. It was like twice an hour I was peeing for a straight 15 minutes.
The second day I felt better, it became a little easier and I didn’t gag as much. I had run the night before and even went for a walk that morning before work. When I got home I decided I was going to step on the scale to see where I was at. I stripped down to my birthday suit and stepped on it. I had GAINED 20 pounds. 20 FREAKING POUNDS! At this point I’m fuckin sweating. I declared I’m never drinking water again and took a shower and went to watch tv.
A short while after I was settled in bed my partner comes to tell me the scale is broke lol. So I’m still drinking water, and I’m actually ok with it…..for now.
Wish me luck people.
