Upping my water intake with Weight Watchers daily motivation water bottle

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll know that I’ve been a member of Weight Watchers since January 2012 and currently volunteer at meetings, helping the coach set up the room, handling cash and card sales etc.  One of the newest products available are these daily water bottles or motivation bottles.

In my last post I talked about the goals I set in 2012 and how I was getting on with them. One thing I forgot to mention, was I set other goals via Facebook – my partner’s sister set a 2012 challenge to better yourself and one of my goals was to reach my goal weight. I joined weight watchers at the end of January so it’s still fairly new to me. At the moment I’m losing consistently and lost 4lbs in my first week! I’m told this is normal as your body gets used to the smaller portion size Read More…
