  Good Morning Guys,
Thanks for all the helpful tidbits! I never thought about counting tea or adding lemon to enhance the taste.

    Like everything else, work up to it. If you're not used to drinking a lot of water, then start off with four, then go for six, then eight. It's a lifestyle change, not a temporary punishment.
I drink a lot more when I exercise. In this heat, try walking to the corner and back and see how thirsty you are!
I count my ice tea with my water, but not any other beverage.

    I found I just liked water more and more as I made myself drink it. I have a glass in the morning, 1 with breakfast, 1 with lunch, 2 with dinner, 2 on either side of my exercise, and that just leaves one to figure out. If I choose other beverages to have with meals I still take the water too. You could alway use the water out, must put one in philosophy too.

    when I had trouble getting water down I started out by getting my 28 oz water bottle and fill it. if I woke up at 8 am and knew I would be awake until 9 I knew I was awake 13 hours. I knew I would have to drink 8 oz ever 1 1/2 hours whether I wanted to or not. to taste better I would add lemon to mine. emoticon

  I like to add lemon juice or MIO (zero calorie water flavoring found by the water in your local supermarket). Either taste good and helps get it down faster. Also, I like to grab a 16 oz bottle because I know every time I finish one I can record 2 waters. Good luck!
