But today, I have a proposition. Last year, one of my favorite blogs, Young House Love, threw down a challenge to drink ONLY water in the month of October. I completely failed. So this year, as October was steadily approaching, I decided to give it another try! This month, for the WHOLE month, I will be drinking nothing but water. Exceptions are milks (real and soy/almond) Tea and Coffee (because they are mostly water anyway, if you need them) but no juice, soda, or anything else that has artificial stuff in it.

When I started trying to lose weight with Weight Watchers, I became addicted to Diet Coke. I have been off WW for over 6 months, but I still can't quite kick the habit! Not only does drinking water cleanse your system, it is absolutely essential in weight loss.
So I am issuing a challenge! For the whole month of October, drink nothing but water. And just like with anything else, if you slip up, just start again with the next thing you drink. Hopefully by the end of the month drinking water will just be second nature.
"But what about beer???" you (Marcy) are asking. Well, I am giving that up too. I have had a terrible time losing recently and I have also started drinking beer recently. Coincidence? (maybe not) BUT I am going to try my darndest.
Join me? We can totally do it!
