So I finally broke down and made Camille’s blueberry pie yesterday. Yes, I am aware that I have a pie obsession, thanks for asking. It’s all I can do not to scarf the entire thing down, but so far, I have managed to only eat one piece. I’m fairly sure this has to do with the fact that I had to buy some new clothes this weekend. It seems that none of my shorts fit me anymore. And that’s actually a very good thing. In the last 6 months, I’ve lost 4—that’s right FOUR—sizes. I haven’t really done anything very differently; we’ve always eaten pretty healthy, and I’m fairly active. The one big thing I’ve done is basically cut out diet soda. I’m essentially off caffeine entirely, and that means I drink crazy amounts of water. I also make a conscious effort to drink a full glass of water before a meal, then another during a meal, then another after a meal. It may not seem like a huge thing, but it’s the only thing I can think of that’s making me shrink. I think my favorite part of all of this is finally being able to fit into a pair of shorts I bought two years ago. I didn’t try them on in the store, and when I got home, they didn’t fit. I mean, they REALLY didn’t fit. So they’ve remained folded in a drawer with the tags still attached with the vague hope that one day I would be able to wear them. That day is today, since they not only fit, they’re a little big. So when the doctor tells you to drink more water, you should listen.

    I drank a TON of water when I was pregnant. About 80+ ounces a day. I’m not sure how much of it I peed out, and how much I retained exactly. I mean, I was quite…. swollen by the end of it all. But I definitely had the Mini as a motivator when I was pregnant to drink all that water (I was paranoid I was going to end up losing amniotic fluid if I didn’t keep up with the water intake, I know, I’m weird). I don’t drink nearly as much as I should now. I really need to get back to it. I don’t necessarily think pregnancy is a great way to drink water, but it certainly helped.
