Weigh In- May 05,2009

I am up 4.4 pounds. Didn't have such a great week. I didn't do any exercise at all, and ate pretty much whatever I wanted.

And I have been so thirsty., it's not even funny. For example, even though i weighed in today, I drank 2 12 ounce cans of diet soda, and 4 16 ounce glasses of diet soda. The only reason I stopped drinking was that I was too full for anything else. But-to be perfectly honest, I was still thirsty.

Someone told me that if I drank water I wouldn't be as thirsty, but I am not sure that I believe that. Maybe I will try more water this week. See if that helps.

At least I don't have to worry about the doctor getting mad at me for drinking too much water. I don't have to see her for a while. I haven't even scheduled a new appointment with her, yet.

So this week, I need to get back on track. I need to eat healthy, and stay out of the sweet stuff. Spearmint leaves are very bad. Not so bad, I guess, if you only have one, or two. But when you have a whole bag in one sitting, not so good. Probably doesn't do much good for my sugar, either.

I could use some words of encouragement. Anyone else ever have a problem with being too thirsty? What did you do to fix it?

Til next time,

  1. This is really cool! You should check out my upcoming challenge!

  2. Have you been tested for diabetes? Excessive thirst is a possible sign for that, especially if you are also fairly overweight.

    If you haven't, you need to do that. If you have, make sure you cut out any excessive sodium / salt. That will help a bit.

    As for being thirsty, I have found that sodas don't really help alleviate the thirst. Water doesn't work for me either. TEA works well, though.

    Everybody has bad weeks. Start over and move on. Don't let one slip up ruin your entire plan.
