Never apologize for 'hijacking'! lol, I come here and stay here to hear stories from others. And, I totally agree with your take on how others tend to react to weight-loss stories. It's so great kind of having this little cocoon of 'safe space' to sound off on struggles and victories that others might not react positively to out in the wider world.
Water is mostly all I drink besides my morning coffee. When I first started I would drink water with a little crystal light. I wanted to stop using artificial sweeteners. I tried a couple of slices of cucumber. It is not acidic like lemon water so it will not hurt the enamel of your teeth. It gives the water a light essence of cucumber. I put a couple of slices in my big water bottle and use the same couple of slice for the entire day. Let me know what you think. 10 days ago
