Hi everyone! It's that time of the month again when we get to spend some time with each other.  I always look forward to these special times. 

I've decided to talk about water - yes, just plain old water.  Many of us, including myself, really do not understand fully how very important drinking water is for us.  It is truly essential to our well-being. 

Okay!  I guess we are ready to start.  Of course, don't forget your water.  Find a nice, comfy chair to sit in and definitely don't forget that wonderful SMILE of yours!

Water ~ How Important Is It?

I've been reading a lot about how water is good for us and for our weight loss Journey.  Water is essential to our well-being. Did you know that by drinking your daily allowance of water you are maintaining your health and well on your way to a successful Journey?  I know that drinking 1/3rd of my water in the morning helps me to get all my water in. I like to flavor my water and that has definitely helped me get in more than my daily allowance. I have found that you must make drinking water a habit like most anything else on our Journey.  Once you stop drinking your water it's hard to get back into the habit, but you must!

So, how many of you have a large glass of water (preferably iced so you can maybe sneak in a few burned calories) in front of you?  How many of you get your daily allowance of water in every day? Do you drink a glass of water before each meal? How about first thing in the morning? How many of you just downright HATE plain water?  Okay, so what are you going to do about it? Hopefully after today's discussion you will all find a way to get your daily allowance of water in. 

Water fills us up.  Water helps us look better.  Water keeps our body fluids in balance.  Water takes away excess sodium.  Cold water can burn calories (according to some studies).  Water suppresses the appetite.  Water helps the body metabolize stored fat. Water cushions joints.  Water protects organs and tissues. Water regulates body temperature.  Water carries nutrients and oxygen to cells.  Water removes toxins. Water maintains strength and endurance. Several preliminary studies suggest that drinking plenty of water may reduce your risk for breast and colon cancers.

The recommendation is to drink eight cups (8 oz glasses) of water daily.  You should add an additional cup of water for every 30-45 minute moderate-intensity workout such as walking and swimming; two cups for high-intensity activities like running and tennis.  If you exercise for an hour or more weigh yourself before and after your workout; for every pound you drop, add 2 1/2 cups to your fluid intake.

If you are one that has a hard time getting your daily water allowance think about using the Crystal Light tubes (add 1 to 12 oz/more water) or the Propel tubes (my favorite).  They flavor my water a bit and I drink a lot more that way.  As for having coffee as part of your water intake - Two hours after drinking eight ounces of water or coffee, your body holds about five ounces of water; but only four ounces from java. One ounce is not worth worrying about.  But...if you are a caffeine addict ~ people who drank six five-ounce cups of coffee with 600 milligrams of caffeine - slightly more than what's in a Grande, 16 ozs, at Starbucks ~ there is reason to worry.  Susan Kleiner, Ph.D., owner of High Performance Nutrition in Mercer Island, WA says caffeine addicts were found to be dehydrated but most of them weren't even thirsty.  Her advice for caffeine addicts is to drink the same amount of water for every caffeinated beverage you drink.

There is also another source to get your water requirement in - many of the foods you eat!  I'll bet you never thought of that.  I certainly hadn't.  Multiply the weight (3 oz broccoli) of your serving by its percentage of water (.90) to calculate the amount of water you'll get (2.7 oz). Just one cup of raspberries delivers 1/2 cup of water! The foods listed below are uncooked unless stated.

95% water ~ romaine lettuce, soy milk, tomatoes, watercress, zucchini

90% water ~ asparagus, bell peppers, broccoli, cabbage, cantaloupes, carrots, grapefruit, honeydews, kale, mushrooms, milk, oranges, orange juice, peaches, spinach, steamed clams, strawberries, unsweetened applesauce, watermelon

85% water ~ apples, blueberries, raspberries, kiwi fruit, pears, pineapples, plums, tofu, yogurt

80% water ~ Cherries, cottage cheese, grapes

75% water ~ Avocados, bananas, baked cod, corn, hard-boiled eggs, pudding, ricotta cheese, water-packed tuna

70% water ~ baked potatoes, cooked long-grain rice

65% water ~ cooked black beans, roasted skinless chicken

60% water ~ garbanzo beans, ice cream, baked salmon

50% water ~ broiled lean ground beef, part-skim mozzarella cheese

35% water ~ bagels, white bread, cheddar cheese, Swiss cheese

Less than 5% ~ dry cereal, popped popcorn

Did you know that by the time you're thirsty, you're probably mildly dehydrated?  Make sure you get plenty of water throughout the day. Signs of dehydration include: headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, flushed skin, light headedness and dry mouth. 

19 Tips For Getting Your 8 Glasses of Water Daily

Sometimes drinking our eight glasses of water a day can be a real challenge. Here are 20 tips to help you accomplish that feat! It is said by many beauty experts that drinking your water is the cheapest, quickest way to look better! That should motivate us!

1. Drink your water out of a big Pyrex measuring cup - it's a good way to keep track of how much water you are drinking.

2. Have a big glass of water at every transitional point of the day: when you first get up, just before leaving the house, when you sit down to work, etc.

3. Make it convenient - keep a big, plastic, insulated water bottle full on your desk and reach for it all day.

4. When you have juice (apple, grape, or orange) fill half the glass with water.

5. When you have a junk-food craving, down a glass of water immediately. You feel full quickly and avoid the calories, and it lets time pass till the craving fades.

6. Have one glass every hour on the hour while at work. When the work day is done your water quota is met.

7. Substitute a cup of hot water with a drop of honey for tea or coffee.

8. While at work, get a 20 ounce cup of ice and keep filling it up from the office water cooler. The key is drinking with a straw - you take bigger gulps and drink much more.

9. Freeze little bits of peeled lemons, limes, and oranges and use them in place of ice cubes - it's refreshing and helps get in a serving or two of fruit.

10. After each trip to the restroom, guzzle an eight-ounce glass to replenish your system.

11. Don't allow yourself a diet soda until you've had two to four glasses of water. You will find that you won't want the soda anymore or that just half a can is enough.

12. Let ounces of water double grams of fat: When eating something containing 10 grams of fat, I drink 20 ounces of water.

13. Drink two full glasses at each meal, one before and one after. Also, drink one glass before each snack so you don't eat as much.

14. Carry a small refillable water bottle at all times and drink during downtime; while waiting in a bank line, sitting on the train, etc.

15. Use a beautiful gold-rimmed glass and fill it with cold water from the tap.

16. Drink two glasses of water immediately after waking up.

17. Bring a two-liter bottle of water to work and try to drink it all before you leave work. If you don't finish, drink it in traffic on the way home - it's like a race.

18. Always keep a 24-ounce bottle of water handy while watching TV, doing laundry, making dinner, etc.

19. Add drinking two glasses of water to your daily skincare regimen. Drink, cleanse, moisturize, etc., then drink again.

Now that we are in the "holiday" mode drinking our water is even more important as we rush from here to there with little thought to taking care of ourselves. Make sure you always have your water bottle with you and refill it often.  This will help keep you hydrated and keep you from overeating while on the run - giving you that "full" feeling.  It will also keep your spirits high and a smile on your face!

My Journey Back to Goal

A little about my Journey back to Goal... Program is going well since I've been back from my Thanksgiving vacation.  While on vacation I just could not get into the swing of things with Program or my sleep.  I did not have my Enjoying Weight Loss Hypnosis CDs with me, so didn't have that to fall back on during this time.  The main thing is that I took the focus off me and my Journey and couldn't get it back until I got home. I know that my hypnosis CDs would have helped me.  They always have in the past.  There was just too many temptations added with too little sleep and will power.

Al and I spent Thanksgiving week in Spokane, WA with our son, LeRoy and our bestest friends, Jim & Tammy, and their wonderful family.  It was especially nice this year because our grandson, Hunter James, turned 1 on November 21st.  We had a wonderful celebration.  Below he is on his favorite birthday present from Grampy Jim, a rocket; on the right he is slowly attacking his birthday cake.  I cannot believe how grown up he has gotten.  He is saying some words now and walking! 

Hunter 1 year      Hunter 1 year cake

Since I've been home I've lost 3 of the 5 lbs I gained with 2 more on the way out.  I'm back to drinking all my water and staying within my points for the day.  I've listened to my Enjoying Weight Loss Hypnosis CDs with Dr. Roberta Temes twice already which has helped immensely with my getting my FOCUS back and getting back in control of my Journey. I'm hoping to add my exercise back into my program soon.

Al and I did get a lot of exercise at one of Portland's Largest Craft Fairs on Friday.  We were on our feet all day. This was a first for Al and he had a lot of fun too.

On Sunday I had to go to Urgent Care for my right foot.  I stepped out of bed and about fell on the floor with heel pain.  I was told it was most likely Plantar Fasciitis and that there was also a small bone spur on my right heel.  Now, after being on anti-inflammatories, the pain has subsided some.  I have an appointment with a podiatrist on January 4th for further evaluation. 

My Enjoying Weight Loss Hypnosis CDs with Dr. Roberta Temes are only a click away when I need that extra support on my Journey.  Believe me there are plenty of times I need to hear her voice tell me that I am important, that I can follow my Program easily and that I am a winner! 

If you are interested in learning more about Dr. Roberta’s Enjoying Weight Loss Hypnosis CDs you can read our review at They really are an invaluable tool on my Journey which I continue to use often.

I have many tools on this Journey back to Goal but the most important is all of you who help keep me inspired to keep on keeping on. I have received so many emails of support which mean the world to me and remind me that there are people all over the world who care. I am truly touched by your thoughtfulness and support.  I hope and pray that I also offer you that love and support.

Diet Totals 758-Pound Loss

I have dieted continuously for the last two decades and lost a total of 758 pounds.  By all calculations, I should be hanging from a charm bracelet.

I have done a lot of kidding around with Weight Watchers, but it is the only organization in which I ever lost a great deal of weight.  But I fought them. Every Tuesday morning, a group of us had to "weigh in" before the lecture.  Our ritual was enough to boggle the imagination.  We got together a check list of precautions before we actually stepped on the scale.

Bathroom?  Check.  Water pill?  Check.  Have you removed underwear, wedding rings, nail polish?  Check.  Set aside shoes and earrings?  Check.  Are you wearing a summer dress beneath your winter coat?  Check.

The first week I stepped on the scale and my instructor said, "You have gained."  (Next week, I cut my hair.)

The next week, she said, "You have lost eight ounces, but that is not enough."  (I had the fillings in my teeth removed.)

The third week, I had dropped a pound, but my instructor was still not pleased.  (I had my tonsils taken out.)

Finally, she really chewed me out.  She accused me of not sticking to the diet and not taking it seriously.  That hurt.

"I didn't want to tell you," I said, "but I think I am pregnant."

"How far?" she said coldly, clicking her ballpoint pen to make a notation on my card.

"Possibly three days," I said.

She glowered.  "Any other excuses?"

"Would you believe I have a cold and my head is swollen?"


"How about I was celebrating the Buzzard's Return to Hinkley, Ohio, and had butter on my popcorn?"

She tapped her pen impatiently on the card and stared at me silently.

"Lint in the navel?" I offered feebly.

"How about first one at the trough?" she asked dryly.

I learned quickly never to argue with a woman who had the scales on her side.

I saw my old instructor the other day and she eyed me carefully and said, "When are you returning to class?"

"As soon as I have my appendix removed," I said returning her gaze.

I'm not sure, but I think I heard her moan.

"Enjoying Weight Loss"

The weight loss battle is over 90% mental. If your attitude is right, and you are completely on board in your mind with your weight loss program, you will succeed. We often find that it is our own inner self that is at work trying to trip us up. This is why hypnosis can be a tremendous help. It has helped me, both to quit smoking, and to start back on my way to goal with a strong will to succeed.

I use Dr. Roberta’s Enjoying Weight Loss Hypnosis CDs as one of my "tools" on my lifelong Journey to a healthier me. They continue to be an irreplaceable part of my Journey back to goal.

The Hypnosis Network is a reliable organization with nothing but top line hypnotists working in the program. Each of them has years of training and experience, and is an expert in his particular area. I can recommend them to you with no reservations, because you will be getting top of the line service when you work with The Hypnosis Network. Their guarantee is rock solid, and you will be free from worry about the product. Either it works, or you get your money back. They are honorable, and trustworthy, professional in every way. I absolutely would not recommend them if they hadn't of worked for me.

Click Here to go directly to their site and find out more about the Hypnosis Network, and how you can order your CDs.

I have found that when I use the CDs regularly, I always do well. It is only when I don't listen to them for too long that I find myself slipping into old patterns. For me, if I use them, I succeed, every time.

Who Knew...

Excerpts from "Who Knew?" by David Hoffman  

Our Journey is not just about weight loss; it's about constantly learning new things...

A portrait of Franklin Delano Roosevelt appears on the dime because of his work on behalf of the March of Dimes and its battle against polio, the disease that crippled him.

A dime has 118 ridges around the edges.

The number of cricket chirps you count in a fifteen-second interval, plus thirty-seven, will tell you the current temperature.

The name Nike emanates from Greek mythology; appropriately, she was the winged goddess of victory.

Dip Recipe

This is a great dip for veggies. This dip thickens when refrigerated for several hours.

          ♦ 1 cup non-fat sour cream
          1 cup yogurt cheese **see below for recipe
          1 tbsp granulated sugar
          2 tsp chopped fresh sweet basil

On a broiler pan, place the red pepper and garlic cloves. Broil about 4 inches from the heat, turning occasionally, until pepper is completely blackened.  Place red pepper and garlic into a paper bag or plastic bag to cool.  Peel red pepper and garlic.  Place in blender.  Add sour cream, yogurt cheese, sugar and basil. Blend until red pepper and garlic are finely chopped.  Refrigerate for several hours.

Organizing Tips

          Keep a checklist with your gym bag to remind you to pack your towel, gym shoes, etc. 
          Create standard packing checklists for your trips, business meetings, etc.
          Keep a running list of items you have to buy ~ groceries, office supplies, pharmacy. 
             Make sure it is handy to add to when you run out of something.
          If you bring the same things every trip keep those packed in a special bag.
             I do this with my toiletries, meds, heating pad ~ keeps me from always having to remember to pack them.

          Never leave a room without improving its appearance.  Pick something up and put it away.

Ways to Cut 100 Calories

          Cut back on nibbling/sampling during cooking. Did you know that 4 tbsp of beef
             stroganoff contain 100 calories, as does 3 tbsp of homemade chocolate
             pudding.  It all adds up!
          Replace 2 ozs of corn chips with 2 ozs of Snack Well's
             wheat crackers.
          At Burger King have a Whopper Jr. sandwich with regular fries
             instead of a Whopper with Cheese sandwich.
          Have 3/4 pint of fresh strawberries on top of your ice cream instead of 3 tbsp
             of strawberry topping.

Food "Sell By" Dates - What do they really mean?

I found this article, written by Suzanne Havala Hobbs, DrPH, RD, University of North Carolina, very interesting with facts I never knew. 

According to Dr. Hobbs, many states require food manufacturers to mark perishable foods with a date so that customers can gauge product freshness but there is not a uniform system since there are no federal regulations requiring products to be dated. Below is a guide to the most common terms and what they really mean.
"Sell-by" dates let stores know how long products can remain on the shelves. They are also used as guides for rotating stock. The sell-by date takes into consideration the length of time a product typically sits on the shelf at home after purchase. Perishable foods remain good for a period of time after the sell-by dates, assuming that they have been properly stored. Use your eyes and nose to judge product freshness.  For example, milk, cheese and yogurt that have changed color should be thrown out.

Here are some general guidelines for shelf life beyond sell-by dates:

Eggs usually are good for three to five weeks past the sell-by date.

Milk typically is good for up to seven days past the sell-by date.

Fresh chicken and turkey should be cooked or frozen within two days after the sell-by date.

Fresh beef, pork and lamb should be cooked or frozen within three to five days after the sell-by date.

Ground meats should be cooked or frozen within two days of the sell-by date.

Unopened processed meats, such as bacon, hot dogs and luncheon meats, should be used within two weeks after the sell-by date.

Unopened canned meats, such as tuna and sardines, will keep for about two years after the sell-by date.

"Best if used by" and "use by" dates refer to the point after which peak quality - flavor or texture - begins to decline.  These are not safety or purchase dates.

Caution: Shelf life depends upon handling and storage conditions. Fresh perishable foods should be kept at 38 degrees F to 40 degrees F for maximum safety and quality.
