New Weight Loss Support Message Board

A message board I have been a member of for almost 2 years is shutting down :( (Choosing 2 Lose) so in an effort to stay in contact with some of the friends I have made there, my darling hubby has set up a Weight Loss Forum/Message board for me, I would love to see you there!

It doesn't matter where you are at in your weight loss journey, beginning, end (at goal) etc, this message board will be there to support you through it all! There will be a great bunch of ladies who will be there! Hopefully will get some men supporters as well :)

I have a drinking problem......

Water that is! (no alcohol for me) Today this is what I drank:

32 Oz Water w/cranberry energy powder stuff
52 Oz Bubba Keg, Ice Water
52 Oz Bubba Keg, Ice Water
32 Oz Water w/strawberry energy powder stuff
33.81 Oz (1 Liter) Coke Zero
20 Oz of Diet Sunkist

Which totals to be 221.81 Oz and I'm not even done for the day, it's only 8pm and I am usually awake till about 11pm! I do not feel water logged or bloated or anything, so what gives? I know about 104oz were consumed on my drive home from work (it took 1 hour 45 minutes due to a BYU Football game...unfortunately I live about 20 miles North of BYU..average speed on the freeway 20mph UGH from about 40 miles away from the stadium! And I got home 45 Minutes AFTER the game started...sorry just my rant). So you can imagine...I was about to pee myself when I got home, had to park, run in and pee then unload the furkids. LOL. I have a Dr's appt on the 12th to discuss side effects of the Neurontin I'm on (seriously feel like I'm having an out of body experience when I take it....yet I've been on it for 5+'s just recent), so I am planning on discussing it with him to see what he thinks. I do know that drinking Diet Coke increases thirst, so that may come into play, however I did not consume that much (for me) diet coke today.

From what I have read I should be drinking about 102.5oz of water per day (1/2oz per pound), what do you do if you are still thirsty after drinking that much water? How do you curb drinking too much?

RIP Sweet Viggo

RIP Sweet Viggo

I am posting this as there are several who read this blog who have worked at Camelot Pet Resort, and probably knew him:
Yesterday my sisters dog, Viggo, a miniature schnauzer passed away suddenly. My dad let the dogs outside before he went to an orientation at school (he teaches vet tech students), and my mom went to let the dogs in about 20 minutes later and all the dogs but Viggo came inside, my sister was talking about taking Viggo to work with her for her trainee to learn how to groom schnauzers so my mom thought that is where he was so didn't think anything of it, so when my dad got home they called my sister and she had not taken him, so they went to go find him, and found him dead outside. He had an autopsy performed today, and his heart basically ruptured, it had a hole in it. He wasn't showing any signs of having any problems, was always a very active sweet boy, he was our Little Doggie Daycare Mascot at work, so I got to seem him 4-5 days a week, as he came to work with my dad, as well as I lived with my sister for the 1st year of Viggo's life. So please keep her in your thoughts. He was only 5 & 1/2 years old.
