It's 2013...

Hi, my name is Deanna. I joined Sparkpeople for the support and companionship. I'm single with no children. I feel I need to make some changes in my life as I need to lose a large amount of weight. I need to be healthier now that I am in my 40's and I need to be more active in my life.

We can reverse years of damage to our bodies by deciding to raise our standards for ourselves, then living differently. Old wounds heal, injuries repair, and the whole system improves with just a few changes in what we put into our bodies and how we move them. ~Unknown

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I had 16 glasses of water and 3 big mugs of tea yesterday. Not sure I could have drank more but I'm working on it today as it is happening again after lunch. My protein has been about the same but I probably can get in a bit more. Yesterday I had a high protein lunch (over 45 grams) and it still happened so not sure that is the issue.

It's weird because it's not like I have been spending the days before snacking all day as I have been trying to eat 3 meals after spending several days just eating 1 or 2 with a snack. Just going to keep plugging along. emoticon

Hope you're doing well. Saw this on another friend's page and thought I'd share since it's a good reminder.
