Welcome back Emily

Whale, Whale, Whale...I'm back.

And yes, I wrote whale instead of well. Because I'm feeling as large as a whale now so I threw that in there.

Last time I wrote here, I was feeling so optimistic about Curves Complete and I have posted some before photos. Needless to say, I didn't stick with the program and those before photos would be welcomed back now given my current state.

I'm somewhere between 250-260 lbs now. I can't bring myself to get on the scale. But I can feel it. I can see it. And I don't like it.

So I'm starting with one goal this week. DRINK MORE WATER! I feel better when I do this and I know my body functions better with enough water in the system.

I've downloaded an app called "Water Your Body." I put in my weight and it calculated how much water I need based on that number. Currently I need to drink 126.5oz of water a day. On a good day, I hit MAYBE 40oz. So that's my goal this week. Starting tomorrow, 4/13/15, I'll be working every day to reach my water needs. I think a small, short goal will be easier for me to complete and it'll get me in a better habit of drinking more water.

Here's to running to the bathroom ten times a day and chugging water while pretending it's Dr. Pepper.



  1. YEAH :) I kept waiting for an update! You got this gorgeous. Starting small with water intake is definitely the way to go :)

  2. Sorry I'm so late to comment, so who knows the updates since you posted this. But yes. DO drink water, DON'T drink soda. At all. Just don't. Soda is like drinking pounds. Just let it go. *insert theme song!* Once you start making water the go-to, your body will adjust and start craving the water the way it used to crave the soda. Trust me, I used to be a Mountain Dew junkie. ;) You got this! NO MORE SODA.
