Hi, I see you made it over here--welcome!

Don't despair--as I mentioned, I've lived most of my life between 300 and 500 pounds so I understand.

Once you commit and your weight loss switch gets flipped "on", you'll drop weight amazingly fast.

As Misery mentions, you can flavor your water--I used to use Crystal Lite. But, I recommend just simply getting used to it. If your water is nasty, invest in a filter. I generally drink ice water as it makes your body burn a few more calories to warm it up.

I drink at least 1 gallon of water a day--within reason, the more you drink, the faster you'll lose (and yes, you'll pee A LOT).

Really, a reasonable intake of "GOOD" calories, some sort of exercise (when you're able) and lots of water is my "secret" to weight loss.

Keep us posted as to your progress, and never, NEVER give up!

Regards,
Michael
