5 Reasons to Drink More Water for Weight Loss

There’s nothing more refreshing than a big drink of water. Most people don’t drink enough and they know it. Drink more water: you know you should, but somehow you never do. Do you think you’re drinking enough? You might not be. Most of us do not drink enough water.

Skipping water does a lot more than leave you thirsty. You feel sluggish and tired, you get headaches, your skin looks dull, your muscles cramp and you’re hungry. Not good. Doesn’t that make you think twice about forgetting your water bottle!?

Why I Decided to Get My Mirena IUD Removed

When my daughter was born, we knew she completed our family. We had a little boy and a little girl. I went for my 6 week postpartum appointment and decided to get Mirena IUD. I use the word “decided” very loosely here. I didn’t want something permanent even though I knew we were done. I didn’t do any research, I just thought this option sounded great when my doctor explained it.  It was a little rough to put in, I had horrible cramps and basically couldn’t get out of bed that day. It was definitely enough pain for me to think that I never wanted to do that again. But after a few days I felt OK.

I didn’t know what to expect but you know what?? I LOVED it! It kicked ass! If you know me at all, and I mean AT ALL, you’d know that I’m not a morning person what-so-ever.

How a Support System Helps You Reach Your Weight Loss Goals

When you decide to lose weight do you tell lots of people? Do you keep it to yourself? Thinking back, I used to keep it to myself. Besides my husband, no one else needed to know. Was I embarrassed? Ashamed that I actually had to go on a diet? I don’t know. Probably but the point is, it didn’t work. I didn’t have a support system. On my most recent weight loss quest (now) I’ve decided to shout it the world. Social media, this blog, my family, everyone and anyone that’ll listen! And so far, so good. It’s working.
