Drink Your FIJI!

Well Groove sisters, as you are well aware part of me "Getting my Groove Back" is losing 30 pounds of baby weight (can I call it that after 3 years...?) So I have begun to tweak my diet and have added some sessions at the gym. My problem is that I really hate drinking water... I think it goes back to my pregnancy days when I drank so much I could float away.... But you need to drink water to lose that bootie... After some research, I found this article on the Diet Channel ...more
