weight loss class week 2

This was a woo hoo week. I lost 5.7 lbs and am now officially over 30lbs. There was so many great results for others in the class, for example losses of 6, 7, 8, 9, and 9.9lbs was the highest loss for the week.

Our topic for this week was the importance of water and cellular nutrition.
I encourage you to go online and do your research; I never was a good water drinker and am getting better since I know how important it is to health and for effective weight loss. The only ways that fat can eliminate your body is with the water you drink and the fiber you consume.
One tip I received in class as a sign of dehydration was; if you are constantly applying chapstick to your lips you are probably dehydrated and drink water instead.
Some myths about drinking water;
Myth-2 quarts of water daily is all adults need to be well hydrated.
Fact-we actually need our 1/2 of our body weight in oz per day. For example: a 150lb person needs 75 ounces of water per day.
Myth-If you have a problem with fluid retention, drink less water.
Fact-It is in fact the opposite, the less water you drink the more your body will hold on to water in the body.
The link below is one I found interesting and wanted to include it in this post on water.

I would encourage you to do research on cellular nutrition, it is extremely important for your all over health. How your body absorbs nutrition or lack thereof is your key to health and weight loss success. Trust me, that was my number one issue. I will include more info later.

I hope you found this somewhat informative and would love your story!
God Bless, Christina

CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so proud of you. I have always had a problem drinking enough water also. I have found that if you keep a bottle filled with you all the time you drink alot more.

YAY! Awesome job! I used to be great about water but recently I have gotten really addicted to coffee--if it weren't for my hot yoga class, I would not drink much water at all.
Thank you for the reminder!

I am here celebrating Connor's Birthday Bash! I really like your blog site. Flowers are one of my most favorite hobbies. I come by it honestly. My Grandma, Mom and Sister all have green thumbs. I don't have a really green one, but I do okay. Thanks for sharing your site with me! Cindi

Congrats to you!!! That is sooo wonderful. I have been planning to do a post on water and fiber myself....when I follow those two things, the weight falls off.
