I try and drink at least that much daily. I am usually pretty close!
Our bodies are made up of mostly water. Can't wait until you feel thirsty, the body needs it long before that sensory.

If you are interested in a really good read, quick and easy. I found this book so amazingly informative on WHY it is so important. No one really explained it to me and I found this at my naturalpath's office. I couldn't put it down!
It explains what is happening to your body, your cells, etc... with pictures as well - without water or little water, and with water.

"Your Body's Many Cries For WATER". By F. Batmanghelidj, M.D.

Magmattin,
I don't drink water either. I tend to get sick to my stomach if I do. I can drink it once it's in a container and frozen. How odd is that? I really have to start drinking water. Diet Pepsi is one of my favorite drink. I also drinking homemade iced tea and Crystal Light.

No, I struggle with this one. I drink coffee, tea, a can of diet soda, so I have to really focus to get in 8. So far I have not been successful.

I usually don't keep track. Just try to drink when I'm thirsty. But I do have a 32 oz water bottle that I go through during my 12 hr shift at work.

No. I just look at my urine. If it is a pale yellow color, I am drinking enough. If not, I drink more.

I drank more than that for years, but now I just don`t....it may have to do with not being about to run to the bathroom whenever I want due to my job, but I have noticed I only drink about 32 oz lately....I really need to do something about that!

I have got a habit of drinking water from bottles. I have 4 separate bottles which only i use. I drink about 3 to 4 litres of water daily.. Is that enough? I do not understand what size glasses are being spoken about, and also how much "oz" exactly measures!

I drink naturally flavored sparking water. Is that as good or no? Or I put Crystal Light in my water. I rarely drink just plain water. Is this okay?

No, I have a hard time getting that whole 64 oz down. Even with having a waterbottle by my side and sipping constantly I usually can't get more that 48-56 down.

I try to. I was pretty good for a while but its gotten harder recently. I am definitely going to work hard at it but i always get my 48 in regardless of drinking other fluids or not.

This is one of the hardest things for me to do. I have tried filling a 32oz glass, drinking it before noon and starting again with another 32oz for the afternoon. And yes, I get tired of running to the bathroom. However, I noticed that when I am able to down most of it that I do feel better and not as tired.

I find if I drink a glass before breakfast (after exercising) or with breakfast, I am more likely to make my goal for the day. If I don't really start drinking until midmorning, I am lost. When I teach, I try to drink an 8 oz glass for each class I teach. It helps me listen when students ask questions!

Pretty much every day I get in my 64 ounces so YES~

I try to, but don't usually get it all in. Sometimes I feel to bloated to finish all that water.

By putting God first in our life, we can all achieve great things.

A smile is one of the greatest gifts you can give, even to yourself.

I made a rule in June of 2010 for myself to make sure I get my 64 oz of water in daily.

My rule is not to drink anything else until I reach 64 oz of water everyday.

Previously I was 90 lbs heavier. I found that I wasn't drinking any water daily and consumed probably that much or more of diet soda. Now I never drink diet soda and if I do have something else its usually unsweetened iced tea.

I try to and I also hydrate with beverages such as coconut water (dark chocolate flavor, a miracle in the desert in the summertime).

No, I am having a really hard time with that one. I HATE the water here. I drank it when we first moved here and it sort of put me off water. Now I can't seem to drink water at all. I mean I really hate the taste of water. I can put lemon and sweetner in it and drink it. Does that count?


Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. Jude 1:24-25

I drink 2 32oz liters of water a day, if I tried to drink too much more than 64oz I'd have to use the restroom too much so I'm not going any further than that. I usually drink tea but sometimes water, makes it easier if there is flavour to the water~

Some days. I always get at least 52 ounces in. 20 oz during exercise, then a 24 oz cup throughout the day at work, and another 8 oz with dinner. Then I have a 32 oz cup that I fill for my bedside. I will drink different amounts from that depending on the evening/night. I'd like to refill the work cup at least once a day. Some days I do, and other days I get so busy I don't think of it. I think I'm going to take a second insulated cup to work, fill both in the morning, and leave one on my desk and one by the chair where I meet with people. That way, I can avoid those situations where I'm at my desk and thirsty, but the cup is on the other side of the room. Bet I start getting more than 64 oz in daily if I try that change!

I drink much more than that and my skin is very soft and hydrated, I have been able to lose 40 lbs without ever really feeling hungry. If I go more than about 1/2 hour with water, I really miss it. It becomes a habit and I take a water bottle full o ice water with me every where I go.

I can do it!!

Someone below posted that they thought it was an ounce for every pound of body weight, but I heard it was to take your body weight and cut that in half and that's the amount you should drink. So a 200 lb person would drink 100 oz - a 250 lb person would drink 125 oz of water. I am just trying to get up to my 64 oz of water. After I get there, then I'll try to up it.

I drink two glasses when I first wake up. Two after my morning exercise. It is hard to keep up at work but I try to make a special point to drink one glass every two hours (4 total) then at least two more during the evening at home. It is easier for me to drink a whole glass at a time instead of sipping at it - I just never get it all in sipping.

At the very least I drink the minimum of 8 cups, but I can easily drink a gallon a day. I carry a Nalgene bottle and one of the camelbak bottles. I usually drink them both with a refill, plus tea and coffee.

Having two 32 oz. water bottles with me during the day helps me reach my goal.

I try to drink the first one before lunch, and the second one after lunch. Sometimes I end up drinking a third one just between the time I get home from work and the time I go to bed, but there's always the risk of disrupting your sleep the later you drink water. I've found that if you try to set mini goals with your water, like x # of ounces between these hours, etc., it makes it easier. emoticon
