Issues with my new life

Eating is killing me.  Drinking my water is killing me.   I'm struggling with finding a routine and a plan that works for me.

Lets start with water.  I'm not drinking.  I fill up my water jug everyday.  I swear I do it.  But then on the way to work with only one or two sips out of my water jug I decide that I need to get a diet soda and I stop and pick up a large drink.  I have pondered this.  Why is this so difficult?   What is wrong with me?  I like water!  I really do!   I finally figured it out the other day when I filled up a glass of water to drink at dinner.  I took a big gulp of water and it was just NASTY!   I have been drinking sweet well water for so many years and to switch to highly chlorinated city water was a shock that was throwing me for a loop.  I had been putting real lemon juice into my water, but that flavors my water and I just don't like flavored water.  So all of a sudden the light bulb went off in my head.  I"m struggling to drink my water because it doesn't taste right!   So how to fix...........

My solution....I just went out and picked up a bunch of gallons of spring water.  I will be starting this plan tomorrow!

Eating.  My parents eat 'weird' and not healthy at all.  The other night we sat down to dinner I looked at the table and said to myself, "wow, I can eat some corn"   I found myself eating corn, crackers, cheese and rounding it out with a few spoonfuls of cake icing from the fridge.  Yup.  Not exactly healthy!   This is happening to me more times than I can count.  I'm not eating healthy.  I don't have foods for me to eat when the options are not there.

I have a few solutions.  The first thing I'm doing.  I stocked up on fruits and veggies and I plan on eating healthy for my lunches this upcoming week.  Focus on that this week.  To make sure I have food, I picked up some boxes of mac-n-cheese and some frozen pizzas.  Not exactly healthy, but healthier than crackers and cake icing.


I am going to do this!   I have to!  I want to be thin!!!!!  I want to be healthy!

MaryFran - You've had a lot of stress and a lot of changes in the last few months.

Don't beat yourself up, but GET ON TRACK! You know what to do!!!

DO IT!! I know you can!!!

I agree with LuckyMama, don't put too much on yourself too fast. Make changes yes, but take your time. Small steps over a long period of time is far better for you than major changes in a short amount of time. Be gentle with yourself.
Youve got this!

Tough situation for sure. Just start with small changes (what you know you can accomplish) and then work your way onto bigger ones. You can do this!

Just do the small manageable things. Don't worry about massive changes or dramatic weight loss. Now is a time to reinforce those small daily habits that move you towards your goal.

Take care of yourself emotionally. Don't beat yourself up for slip ups here and there.

I agree with everyone else. don't put too much on yourself and aim for the small changes. A little bit at a time is totally ok!

I think drinking the spring water will help. I can't stand water that comes out of the tap. Remember: Slow and steady wins the race. You can do this!

You can do this. Make small changes that grow into habits. I wish you the best.

I highly recommend getting a ceramic water filter. They make the most delicious water, are super low maintenance (unlike a brita type filter) and last forever so the initial outlay in cost is repaid multiple times. I've been putting 5 or 6 litres through mine daily for 5 years. It makes drinking water easy peasy.

You'll get there.

I was going to suggest a water filter as well. I have one attached to my kitchen faucet, and I fill water bottles from that. Mine is DuPont, and the filters last a long time and do a good job filtering the water.
