Meeting Your Weekly Water Goals

Meeting Your Weekly Water Intake Goal

I am on the start of week 8 with Medifast and I am down 14.5  pounds and I am so excited.  For the first time in years, I feel like I can really do this!  When I was talking with my nutritionist Alexandra, she asked me what goals I wanted to set for the week.  The first thing that I thought about was my water intake.  I am just not a water drinker and it is hard for me to get in as much as I need.  I would much rather drink Diet Coke than water any day!  Since soda can make you want to eat sweets, it is really important that I cut that out altogether and stick with water.  I told Alexandra that I wanted to drink 3 bottles of water per day and cut out the diet coke altogether. I reserved the treat of having a diet coke once a week, but other than that, I wasn’t going to have it.  Lucky for me, Medifast has Flavor Infusers that I can add to my water.  You have 5 flavors to choose from: Raspberry  Acai and White Grape Peach have added antioxidants and the CalorieBurner Green Tea Lemon, Mixed Berry and Strawberry.  I chose the mixed berry and the strawberry lemonade and they are so delicious.  I could not believe how tasty they are.  I have had flavors that had a weird after taste but these have nothing but a crisp and clean taste that made meeting my water goals easy.  At the beginning of the week, I buy a case of water and put half of it in the fridge.  With each meal and snack, I grab a cold water and add my flavor infuser and I am good to go.  I cannot believe my water tastes this good and that I am easily getting in my daily intake.  Alexandra helps me set realistic goals each week and I can see why!  It feels so good when I meet a goal.  It gives me encouragement that I can lose this weight once and for all!!

I can’t wait to tell you about the new Mac and Cheese that you would swear could not be something that belongs in a weight loss program!

  1. I’m not a water drinker at all. I’ll add Crystal Light to a water bottle, but I know the artificial sweetener in that is no better than diet soda. I really need to drink more water. Wish I had the finances to start a weight loss program, like Medifast, but I will try what I can on my own. Thank you for the idea to get more water into my diet

  3. Water is the only thing I drink, in general. It’s hard to do at first but you do get used to it and it becomes a lot easier! Eventually you’ll start wanting the water and nothing sugary. Make sure you’re drinking enough water, that will definitely help you lose weight! Good rule of thumb is to take your weight, divide it in half and then that equals how many ounces you need each day. Congrats on your weightloss so far!
