November 2010 Weight Loss Thread

Drink lots of water - people don’t always think about water in winter, but forced air heat dries you out real good. In some ways you just kind of have to go with it - it’s harder to lose weight in winter for a variety of reasons, so if weight loss slows down in winter, that’s kind of to be expected.

I do keep a water glass on my desk while I’m working, and Spark People has a place to put “glasses of water drunk” on it’s nutrition tracker. So I am reminded of that, but you’re right, lots of times a person thinks they’re hungry when they’re actually thirsty.

I have some herbal teas in fruit flavors, so I’m trying that - getting a cup of tea between meals. It has no caffeine. :slight_smile:

I weighed in at 139.2 lbs today! Finally being in the 130s feels good. Looking at my weight loss graph on livestrong.com, it took me 5 months to lose 10 lbs. Oh well, at least I’m there. I’m hoping to lose the last 4 before Christmas but if I don’t, not a big deal.
