Comparing liquids to solid objects is not helpful in judging how much we are drinking. MY milk doen't resemble a baseball at all in my glass. Nor my juice a hockey puck. I've never been up close to a bsaeball or a puck, even if I were judging solid food. Can we say, " fills an average 8 ounce drinking glass" for example? And size of dice? Yahtzee size dice? Las Vegas crap table dice? Fuzzy mirror-hanging dice? A deck of cards is better, but even they qre not standard. Poker cards? Bridge deck? Canasta deck?

Flavor your water with a few table spoons of lemon juice or orange juice, or crush a berry or two in the bottom of your glass. Filtered water is flat tasting bcause minerals are removed, and minerals dissolved in water give it its taste. Try making herb tea. It has few or no calories and lots of flavor, and no caffeine. So you don't need to be shy about drinking lots.

Jane, understand perfectly your situation story details a little different but outcome over time and goals are the same. I've done WW before (many times) but have found sp site easier to use and keep up to date...love the recipe postings for foods I make but don't know nutrition/calorie counts...We will get where we want to be next week by taking appropriate steps today. Have walked the dog this morning and posted breakfast foods..now to keep my hands out of the almonds...my downfall.

Wow! So much going on here! This is my first-ever post having just joined yesterday after hearing about the site for the first time. I am at my highest weight ever--same as my weight right before I had my son lo these 20 years ago. I've been a SAHM and he's leaving for college in 2 weeks. I was considering WW but want to try this first. My husband is crazy fit: rides his bike 10 mi to work every day and between 40-80 miles each weekend. He does all the cooking and it's pretty high-cal. My goal is to weigh less than him. Help!
