Small Changes Make Big Differences

water

Changing what I put into my mouth in order to lose weight has been a constant struggle for me.  Going from drinking soda 24/7 to stopping cold turkey was a challenge to say the least.  Once you make the commitment though, it’s worth everything.  I’m helping my body, my skin and even my teeth.  Teeth??  Yes, the soda has done nothing but rot my teeth so drinking water was absolutely necessary for me!

So that’s weight, skin, and teeth so far and I haven’t even begun to scratch the surface of how beneficial water is. Water means I’ll live longer because my body will be more healthy.

Drinking Water

No biggie right?  You turn the faucet on and bam, you have water.  Sadly though, there are many people without clean drinking water.  Can you imagine??  In fact, over 900 million around the world don’t have clean drinking water. THAT is sad. YOU can help though. You can help Crystal Light bring clean, safe drinking water to those people in need. Just take the Water Way Challenge! All it costs is your time and you’ll be helping someone somewhere get that clean water! And if you need a bit more of an incentive, how about a chance to win a spa trip for two to Jackson Hole, Wyo. And if you want a chance to win $250 bucks, head on over to Divine Caroline and tell your story.

I encourage you read my other posts about water and Crystal Light, learn the benefits, take the challenge and even make the recipe using Crystal Light!  I would love to hear you thoughts and stories about drinking water, playing in water, not having water, etc.  Share it with me won’t ya!

SOMETHING FOR SOMEONE

Like the previous water posts, I have $50 bucks up for grabs.  Two ways to enter.  Leave each one in a separate comment.

    I had no idea the losing 2% of water could cause headaches and fatigue. I have been trying to drink mostly water for a while now. If we really understand what is in soft drinks, most people wouldn’t want to do that to themselves.

  2. Lori Z. says

    Aww…My water wisdom is on the dry side. It asked about coffee and tea, but it didn’t mention Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper. That counts, right?

  3. Alicia Webster says

  4. Karen says

    I took the test and it said my Water Wisdom was on the dry side. I never drink water but I should.

  5. Heather M says

    I didn’t know you loose 10 glasses a day either! I need to start drinking more water! But doesn’t adding a powder to your drink make it not water anymore? I mean doesn’t it defeat the purpose? Because I drink Vitamin Water all day long it’s still not really water, because of the sugar!

  6. Yvonne Butler says

    If you loose 2%-5% water it can cause headaches and fatigue. I don’t like water but have found that if it has lots of ice in it to make it really cold, I can drink it easier and more of it. Just can’t take that lukewarm water. Thanks for letting me enter.

  7. Carol says

    The Challenge is interesting because it attaches a lot of importance to keeping a tally of how much you drink daily. It makes you accountable, which is excellent in maintaining health.

  8. Deanna D says

    Took the quiz, said i was a little on the dry side. Funny thing is i lost over 50lbs over a year ago watching what i ate but mostly switching from pop to Crystal Light. I had a pop in my hands all the time before and i knew that was the main reason for my weight. I’m a vegetarian and never eat fast food so pop was the main culprit @170 calories a can. I loved drinking Crystal Light because plain water just wasn’t going to work! Now i’ve gained back 15 lbs and have found myself drinking way too much pop again! Thanks for posting this, it opened my eyes and it’s back to Crystal Light for me:)

  10. Sandra K321 says

    I found from the test that if you loose 2%-5% of the water in your boyd it can cause headaches and fatigue. I just find it very hard to just drink water during the day.

  11. Jill L says

    Well I took the water wisdom quiz and did great!!! Of course I had read a bunch of the responses here first. My husband just made the switch from pop to water. I buy him lots of the Crystal Light to add to his water and he really loves them. I’m a little slower but am up to the challenge.

  12. Norma says

    I no longer make a trip to the office “coke machine”. I bought a small refrigerator and stock it with bottled water. If there is no coke available, it makes it easy to grab a bottle of water instead of a coke.

  13. Mickeyfan says

    Eating fruit can up your water intake. On a personal note, I found I drink more if I add a bit of lemon or lime juice to my tap water. I drink even more if I put it in a glass with a straw. No idea why it works, it just does!

  14. Kimberly Ripley says

    Wow! I learned that 900 million people around the world lack access to clean water. That is a whole lot of people!

  15. Nadine L says

  16. Leslie M. says

    I learned… according to the CDC adults should be drinking 8 8oz glasses of water daily to stay hydrated!
    YUP!
    Leslie

    I love this Giveaway and I am drinkin’ my H2O!

  17. Letessha says

    I took the quiz and learned that only a 2% to 5% water loss can cause a headache and fatigue. I better start drinking more water!

  18. Amber G says

    I learned that if you lose as little as 2% of your water weight, it could cause you to get a headache! Wow – even more of a reason for me to make sure I stay hydrated.

  19. Tracey byram says

    You can lose up to 10 cups of water a day just breathing, sweating, etc. I definitely did not know that.

  20. courtney says

  21. Kathleen says

    I learned that the average adult looses 10 glasses of water a day just by sweating, breathing and waste elimination. I had no idea! Thanks.

  23. Vicky H. says

    I took the quiz, and I was shocked to learn how much water we lose from everyday, natural things like sweating.
    I don’t drink enough water, unless I’m working out, but I’m going to continue to try.

  24. Linda J. says

    Took the quiz, and my knowledge was “on the dry side.” I didn’t realize how much water a person loses per day even without physical exercise.

  25. Abby C. says

    I took the quiz and I am embarrased to say the result I got was “Your Water Wisdom is as dry as the Sahara”. Ouch looks like I’m going to have to brush up on my knowledge of H2O.

  36. Ellen Ring says

    I took the challenge. i also learned that you need at least 50 liters of water every day. I don’t even come close.

  37. Sharon Franks-Rivard says

    I’m amazed that we lose so much water each day just through normal functions, I had no idea!

  45. Lisa Foster says

    I learned just how much the body uses a day–I knew it was important, but just not how much.

  46. Jason Lawless says

    The body loses 10 cups of water per day by breathing, seating, and eliminating waste – I did not know that – I really need to drink more water to make up for all of that!

  47. Heather S says

    I learned that on average an adult loses 10 cups of water each day through sweating, breathing and eliminating waste.

  48. Cynthia C says

    I learned that research suggests that people who drink an average of six and a half cups of water during the day consume close to 200 fewer calories per day.

  53. beth shepherd says

  54. Leslie R says

    I took the quiz and discovered that I don’t know much. :-) I’m “on the dry side.” I knew I don’t drink enough water per day, but I had no idea the human body loses so much water even without exerting itself.

  55. sweetscove says

    Hi, I took the quiz and found I am getting close to the amount of water I need. I have always tried to drink plenty of water as it helps keep headaches at bay. However, the link did give me more details on just why I’m needing all of that water and just how much I lose in any given day. Thanks for the info!

  56. Shania Duncan says

    I didn’t know we lost 8 glasses of water a day just from regular day to day life. I guess that why they say drink 8 becaues you lose that much every day.

  57. says

    I learned that water aids all physiological processes! Simply put, your body works better when it is adequately hydrated. You burn calories more efficiently and digest meals faster when properly hydrated. Drinking the recommended amount of water is especially important if you’re interested in losing weight.

    I learned that research suggests people who drink an average of six and a half cups of water during the day consume close to 200 fewer calories per day. So now I just need to drink about 18 and half cups a day to get rid of all my extra calories from the chocolate chip cookies! :)

    I didn’t know you could get dizzy/feel fatigued from losing such a small amount of water! I used to be really good at drinking tons of water, but as I’ve gotten older I started drinking more soda and less water. I need to switch that!!

  81. says

    I am really bad about not drinking enough water…I always forget because I am so busy, until I realize it’s been way too long since I had a drink. I never knew lack of water can cause headaches…that answers alot of questions for me!

  99. Aisling says

    I need to drink more water. Drinking a glass with each meal is a good suggestion. From the site I learned that: “Drinking adequate amounts of water complements healthy eating.

Generally, those who drank water in the same study tended to have healthier eating habits and drank less soda.”

Thanks for the chance to win the giveaway! I certainly believe in helping those who don’t have clean drinking water!

  134. R Hicks says

    I learned that the avg adult loses 10 cups of water daily due to sweating breathing and eliminating waste

  135. Jeanette H. says

    I learned that you lose up to 10 cups of water a day. Other then that, I knew all the rest. I gave up caffinated drinks when I was pregnant with my daughter (who is now 11 1/2) and have never looked back. It’s the best thing I could have done and i’d do it again, even going through the pepsi withdrawals…LOL.
    Congratulations on giving up pop/soda, it’s a great move for you and your body.

    Thank you for the great giveaway!

  140. carol ~ says

    I learned 900 million people do not have access to clean water. That’s sad.
    I also gave up soda, but diet soda. It was so full of chemicals and was just so acidic it made my joints hurt. On top of that I was just so addicted to it and it costs quite a lot so I am glad I am done with it. I banned soda from my house, too. It took awhile to get my son and husband off of it but I finally did it!

  141. amy delong says

    that adults lose 10 cups of water a day,I never realized it was that much,well I have to go drink my water now!
