I'm done playing around. Time to get serious again.

It's important for me to watch what I consume, not just for weight loss, but to balance my ADHD too

I have recently been convicted that I need to treat my diet with the same attention and priority as I do my medication.

Same with my sleep, exercise, supplements, and water intake.

For the months of September and October 2015 I am on a strict diet protocol. See my blog for specifics.

I will reevaluate at that point how long to extend it, or how to alter.

    Raligh,

    Great post on the drinking 8 to 12 glasses of water board ... Very informative ... I lost my weight without the water thing, but am rethinking the necessity after a bout of campyloctor enteritis infection and a week and a half of diarehha landed me in the hospital hooked up to IV's for a week ... I have now seen how serious it is to become severely dehydrated and wonder what kind of a difference it could make in my life to be fully hydrated all of the time ... so I am going to give it a try ...

    Good luck on your weight loss journey ... You are doing great ...
