Lots and lots of water

So yesterday for lunch I had sushi. Which is a very good choice when trying to eat healthy. It is filling and so good for you.

Soy sauce–even low sodium–has me retain water like crazy. One night I had sushi and then the next day weighed in with a GAIN. I was so upset. (This was when I was still losing weight.) So I made it a point to never weigh in after sushi the day before.

Well, I really did want to weigh in today. So yesterday I had a lot of water. I mean like 14 8 oz. servings. You really only need six to eight 8 oz. servings a day. But if you drink alcohol, a lot of caffeine, soy sauce, etc. you need to counteract the dehydration with more water.

I didn’t want the soy sauce to alter the number on the scale today.

And I did OK. I am still within 2 pounds of my goal weight. Once you hit your goal weight with Weight Watchers to stay Lifetime and attend meetings for free you can’t be more than 2 pounds over your goal weight.

    How do you NOT spend your entire day in the bathroom after drinking 14 8 oz glasses of water???

    I, on average, drink 9 to 12 8 oz. servings a day. You kinda build a tolerance to the water.
    I try to drink 3 servings on the way to work, 3 servings on the way home. And fit the others in throughout the day and evening.
    But I still do have to powder my nose quite often. 🙂
