And don't forget, green tea and Matcha burn fat too! :) And they count as Water don't they if they?

Hmmmm, Rules ...

I think fresh brewed green , white, herbal, etc without additives like milks (plant or animal) count as pure Water but black and pre packaged iced teas do not. They count towards other fluids, like coffee, hot cocoa, etc.

45 oz pure water

90 oz fluids minimum

seem fair?

My Dr office considers black decaf coffee with just sweetener or any decaf tea as part of my "clear" fluids. But if we want just Water I can do that for this challenge.

Prepping for this challenge:

Choose your unit of input for fluids- MFP has three options choose the one you are comfortable with using:

8oz= 1cup = 250ml

We want everyone to get used to drinking more pure Water

too many of us are relying on additives just to make it palatable or forgo drinking water altogether.

But pure additive free water is crucial to many bodily functions.

If you are closer to the 128oz of liquids it won't hurt to count them anyway you please

What's your favorite Water enhancers?

I've always enjoyed citrus fruits over anything and now that I have an infuser, it makes it yummier. Especially since I had help here on the pal. But I also have some flavor packet things like Crystal Light, but since we are ballin on a budget, it's the Great Value brand. If Water is cold, I love it even plain. When it gets ball temperature that's when I need some enhancer.

Lol. Yeah, the word "challenge" in the title threw me off

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.
