    i heated up an 8 oz glass of water, had the tea bag soak for 15 min.......then poured it into a 70 0z container and mixed other ingredients in it for the day.

      i have changed my diet........the drink was just an "idea".........LOL

       

      it didnt work for me, made me constipated after 3 days........if that makes any sense.

       

      I just wanna lose enough weight that my sides and belly dont fold over my bikini.......like they do now!!!

       

      Ya know how when you gain weight you constantly had to pull your jeans up over your FAT in your front, that is where i am at right now......i just wanna be comfortable again......

       

      My age at 39 doesnt help either.........LOL

       

      Thanks for all the input girls..........i love this forum....

      So here's my input... I'm also 5'6 and roughly the same weight. I did a cleanse at the beginning of January which involved changing diet and taking diuretics for 12 days. I think I benefited most from changing my diet to include more vegetables and eliminating processed sugars and breads. We were allowed whole grains and oats for carbs. I lost 10 pounds over the course of the diet.

       

      I think if you make a serious lifestyle change and eliminate most of the crap we tend to consume, you will be much happier with the results.

       

      But most importantly, take a serious look at your weight. It is a healthy weight, so maybe you just want to increase you activity to redistribute how your body carries the weight. Losing anymore than 25 pounds will probably put you into the underweight category.

        Thanks for the input!!

         

        This did not work for me personally.

         

        I did try it for 3 days only to become constipated........

         

        Go figure???

         

        Someone told me if I did not have any water weight to lose that it was sucking water out of my intestines making me constipated....not sure how true that is............Now this may work for someone else........

         

        I didnt work for me.......but then again, i didnt stick with it for a week.........but i cant help it...........I had to POOP.....LOL

        What they told you was essentially true...it's not fun feeling like that especially for more then a day! I hope you are able to find a more pleasant and healthy way for your big day! :)

          Oh yeah, i count my calories..........calories in calories OUT.......i keep it simply and clean food

           

          this was just an experiment thought i would try.

           

          But since it didnt work for me,,,,,,it may work for others.......or else i dont think Julian Michael would advertise it....she indicates its a good thing to do for like exampl.e....................A WEDDING........but does not recommend it for actual weight loss...

           

          Thanks girls

            WATER WEIGHT!!  Ugh

             

            I AM NOT PROVIDING THIS INFO TO SUGGEST ANYONE DO THIS.  DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT DO WHAT I DID!!!

             

            Well being a previous competitor I found out exactly how much water I carry and a majority is in my lower body.  I dehydrated that last week leading up to the competition.  It was not fun, extremely unhealthy and unsafe.  I was miserable!!!  But I had to do what I had to do to step on that stage.  Anyways...15lbs of water fell off in a few days and it was crazy.  I didn't look like myself and my body didn't feel like my own.  I have very big muscular legs/thighs thanks to 20+ years of soccer.  I had to cut out the water to see the definition in my thighs and glutes.  I was under supervision from a professional and this was for a specific goal.  The moment I stepped off stage and drank the gallon of water that I was dying to chug....it all came right back on.  A majority of our body is water and we need it to function properly.

             

            Since I have gone thru this and I have seen how is works and affects my body I would not be doing this for my wedding.  It is almost impossible since we will all be at all-inclusive resorts eating and drinking days before the wedding.  Please do not try to lose water weight for your big day.  Do what you need to do to be happy with how you look and feel before you go.  And then enjoy all the food and drinks you can consume LOL!!

              I don't think I could ever do this.  For me a big sign of dehydration is headaches.  I get migraines and a lot of them I know I probably could have prevented by ensuring I was properly hydrated.  Not fun and they make me moody and miserable.

                think its important to drink gallons of water and eat healthy good quality foods. Lots of fruit and veggies. I try to fill at least half my plate at every meal with these. Might try a detox of some sort in January
