Really, I could have started this yesterday, but I just had to have a Coca Cola so no more until I have dropped 25 pounds. How long will it take I’m not sure just hoping to be successful and stick with it. Via the internet some have done so in 2 months my goal isn’t just to get rid of it but to keep it off as well so if that must take time, then time it must take. My water intake I have increased drastically I was just under 64 ounces yesterday, today I must drink 64 oz. or more an I don’t foresee any difficulty in doing so. Have a Great day and remember you can accomplish your goal.
