Technically, yes, you CAN drink too much water, though it is not that easy to do:

If your nine glasses a day seems plenty to you, it probably is. (Seems well within reason to me.) I try to stay hydrated myself, but I don't force myself to drink much more than I really want.

Starting Weight: 260 lbs. (November 2010)
Quasi-Maintenance: 165 lbs. (June 2011)
Goal Weight: 150 lbs. (reached December 8, 2011)

Size 22W to Size 4

Currently maintaining within 5 lbs. (+ or -) of goal. I weigh daily, but also use a tape measure and the fit of my clothes to guage how well I'm doing.

This question was sparked when I was reading the topic 'Can I count my tea as water?" message board. A member drinks 15 8 oz glasses of water a day (120 oz) which is half of her weight of 240. Is this a good guideline, providing one has no medical issues? Just wondering - I drink at least 9 glasses of only water daily - don't think I could drink anymore. I also drink lemonade, tea, milk, & coffee from time to time in addition to the water. emoticon
