Marathon Weight Loss Challenge

Hello everyone here I am again. I signed a few weeks back for the Marathon Weight Loss Challenge which includes losing 26.2 pounds over 13 weeks.

START - Monday, June 18, 2012
FINISH - Monday, Sept. 17, 2012
My first weigh in was on June 25th, 2012. 382.6lbs, not pretty at all, and like I said earlier in the year my goal for this year was to get rid of the front butt I grew over the last few years. Ok maybe a little longer but it has got to go.

I did the  Hydration Calculator Quiz and it told me I should be drinking 191oz or about 24 cups of water a day. I drink other liquids but only about a cup or two of water a day. I have been told to count all liquids I drink as long as they are not  caffeinated, or alcoholic. Then by others I have been told I need to keep my water separate, so I will be asking the Dr. the next time I see him which is right.

Below is a picture of what 24 cups looks like.

Of course for me to drink water I needed something special that was just for me. So last night when we went out shopping, I found the perfect water bottle which holds 32oz plus has a inner core that can be frozen to keep me drinking water all day long.

Here I am above chugging water, and below showing it off.

Today I had to step on the scale to see how I was doing, and you know what? I was very happy but weigh in isn't until Monday so you will have to wait a bit longer to see how I am doing, but lets just say. "It is going well"
