Things I Love Thursday: Contigo Travel Mug

This mug has helped me lose 24 pounds. It seriously has.

I fill it every morning when I get up.

I fill it again before I leave the house.

I fill it again when I get to work.

I fill it again, and again, and again, and again while I’m at work.

I fill it for my ride home.

I fill it for dinner.

I fill it for evening time in front of the tv.

That’s TEN fills. It’s a 12 oz mug.

What am I filling it with? WATER!!

That has made a huge difference in my weight loss journey.

Why this mug? Because it keeps the water COLD COLD COLD for hours. Seriously. Even in the Georgia heat, it keeps water cold forever. We were at the outlet mall for three hours yesterday afternoon. I left this mug in the car with cold water in it. It was over eighty degrees outside. When I got back in the car, I still had cold water. Ya, it’s a good one.

I checked out the Contigo site. They’ve got lots of great mugs. Even some for kids. We love them at the House of Hills.

Do you have a mug you LOVE?

  1. Hey Kathy,

    I was wondering if you have problems cleaning out the lid on this mug? I too can drink water like nobodies business when my water is super cold! I love it that way!

    • Hey Danielle!
      I always just put it in the dishwasher and it does well. My Sweetie uses his for coffee and puts it in the dishwasher as well. He says it doesn’t get as clean as he would like for all the creamer he uses because of the way it seals. But, since I just use mine for water, it cleans great. Hope that helps!

  2. Great idea for a gift for Grandma for Christmas!
