Why do we think we have to spend money to lose weight. How many of us have joined groups that cost a lot money, thinking this will be it, I'm going to lose weight now, especially if I'm paying for it. I know I did. I joined Weight Watchers and LA Weight loss. Nothing against them, I've seen many people have great success with both groups. Unfortunately, it got a little costly for me. Weight Watchers, I was paying $11 a week, plus they had all these cool books and gadgets that I thought I had to have, which I ended up spending more money. Then later down the road I joined LA Weightloss. Well, this one hurt me a little more, especially when I signed up. I had to write a check out for over $500! Then every week I had to buy their LA Lite Bars (which are really tasty), and got expensive. Times got harder and I couldn't afford the bars, and I stopped going. I thought that if I spent this amount of money, I would have some motivation to lose weight. WRONG! If anything, I felt guilty and felt that I did the wrong thing. If things were different, like, we had more money and I just didn't have my 3rd child, I may have continued it, but who knows.
So now I'm using the power of a blog to get me motivated to lose weight. For the past year, my weight has been increasing little by little, and now I'm at the point that I find myself disgusting looking. What am I going to do? I have no idea. The first thing I'm going to do is No More Soda and drink only water for the next 21 days. This is going to be my next 21 day challenge. Since I had such success on my last 21 day challenge, I figured why not try it by drinking water.
Water has always been very difficult for me to drink, and soda is my all time favorite drink, especially Coke. It taste so good! But for the past 2 days now, I haven't drank no soda and pushing the water regularly. I do drink 1 coffee in the morning, but thats it. So let's see how much weight I can lose just by cutting out soda and drinking only water, 19 more days to go!
