My teeth are floating

Oh my Lord, I am so not used to drinking this much water!  I got in two big ol' bottles of water in addition to  the decaf tea I drink with every meal for a total of 115 oz of the liquid stuff yesterday.  Clear pee anyone?

This is a huge accomplishment for me because I'm just so NOT cut out to drink anything like a fish.  I'm trying to force myself to drink one of them before noon and then work on the other from then until about 7pm so I'm not up into the wee hours...literally.  So I just have to keep this streak up this week and see if it helps speed along any weight loss since we're on our first totally clean week of no restaurants and such.  We're both anxious for a weigh in but I also swore off weighing in here for the month so I'll have to see how I feel about that come Saturday mornin'.

How much water do you get in each day?

  1. I drink 128 oz each day. I am pretty used to it now, to the point where if I don't get as much in then I get really thirsty. You have been doing very good with it and I'm proud of you!

  2. I drink at least 160oz of water (5 1L water bottles) but it's usually more. About 16 oz of coffee plus 12zo for my protein shake (mixed with almond milk) and occasionally I'll drink diet cran - like last night I had 24oz of that.
    I'm a tad absurd lol

  3. I get about 96 oz of straight water (rough estimate) and I drink (average) 8 oz of milk every day.

    But it depends on the day. Now that it's getting warmer, I'll be drinking more water and probably more Powerade (I use it as a reward during exercise, "Keep pushing and then you can have a sip of Powerade!").

  4. Bare minimum of 64 oz (2 - 32oz water bottles) but I try for 3 bottles and in the hotter months 4 isn't unusual. I do have to make sure that I'm basically done by suppertime or I'm in the wee hours too.

  5. When the weather's cold, I barley get in 64. But when it warms up, I can drink upwards of a gallon a day.

  6. Keep us posted on how the water drinking goes! I know I sure don't drink enough of it. . . I was doing really well for about a month and EVERYTHING felt better (my skin even cleared up and evened out!), but then life happened. Oh well. Time to get back on the water wagon.

  7. The more you do it, the easier it seems to get so the trips to the bathroom are less frequent. Hoping that it helps--it certainly should not hurt!

  8. I've never been much of a drinker either-- of any liquids--it is the one behavior regarding consumption that was moderate for me. I didn't even attempt to drink the recommended amounts of water while I was losing weight and still don't. Good luck with the new plan. I'm guessing your results are going to be great!

  9. Good for you! I try to drink a lot of water throughout the day too. I drink it room temperature because that makes it easier to go down, although my husband thinks I'm weird for liking lukewarm water. :P

  10. Other than making you full, what effect does water have on weight loss?

  11. I average between 100-150 ounces most days of the week. I'm not as good on the weekends though. I don't drink coffee or tea so it's water most of the day, along with a Crystal Light packet every couple of weeks--they sit right on my desk, but I never remember! LOL!
