When I started a couple of weeks ago, one of my goals was to get in the 8 glasses of water. I started with my 20 oz insulated mug and the first few days I thought I was going to float away. I finally realized that with each mug, I was getting 2+ glasses! After trying to drink 8 20oz cups a day, getting 8 8oz cups a day is a breeze! I try for 10, but much more than that makes me slosh when I walk!

restarting...today.
It is kinda funny. I usually plan my starting day. Like, january 1st..which I did. I lost 16 lbs...by March 1ish...by April 1...I regained 8bs...and just got on the scale April 30...low and behold gained back that extra 8lbs...so I am where I was on January 1...

I am so disappointed in myself...however, this is the first time..I only gained what I lost, there has been more times, in my struggle that I do not notice the weight creeping back on until I have packed on an additional 8-12 lbs...

It is a great day to start over...feeling good...

I am having 64 ounces of water per day, my goal is to get to 80 ounces per day...So far so good with my weight lost, I can feel the clothes getting loose, I am trying to stay away from the scale and weight myself once or twice a month.

Thank you for all the tips

This is a great team'.

Since I purchased a Camelback 24 oz bottle this has been WAY easier to do. I did not drink enough water every day. I have noticed that I don't feel as hungry - maybe because my body is getting what it really needs.

Anyway - 8 to 12 a day for me! 248 - 372

I'm drinking ten cups of water each day. It has cleaned my skin pores, I feel less sluggish and never having been a soda drinker, it has dropped my sugar intake by reducing my juices. Better for the budget, too. :o)

I have no problem with water. It actually curbs my appetite. However, I'm going to be realistic and set my goal at 6 cups/day, which means I will have to drink 186 cups of water!

I will commit to drinking my usual 10 to 12 - 8 oz glasses a day. Sometimes I get the desire to drink more than that ...so we'll see. I am guessing that is 310-360 glasses a month.

Just got the challange - I tried last month but found it really hard just to get in 6 glasses a day - not sure why. So I will drink 8 glasses a day by measuring out the 8 glasses in the morning and drinking throughout the day until gone.
