Drinking 8 glasses of water a day won't help you to lose weight, except when it replaces higher calorie drinks like soda/juice.
There are many things that could be happening.
It could be eating too much for your needs, or it COULD be a health issue. I would suggest that you weigh all of your food and enter it all into the Nutrition tracker and see where you go with that. It is a fantastic tool if used correctly, and for that you really need to LOOK at it - analyze what and how much you are eating, and check that you are eating all your meals, not skipping some which can cause going overboard later.
If, after having tried this for a month, as well as getting in some exercise, you still aren't losing, then it would be advisable to make an appointment with our Dr to see if there is something medical going on. Sometimes a simple blood test can reveal the culprit - things like Hypothyroidism!
If there isn't something medical, then perhaps your Dr can refer you to a Registered Dietitian. Take alone some random print-outs from your Nutrition Tracker. I can assure you from personal experience that it really saves tons of time and provides very accurate info. It took my Dietitian less than 5 minutes to figure out the problem. I haven't look back since. I lost 50lb in 16 months, sat there for a year before deciding to move on down again, and have since reached my goal. I've been maintaining for nearly 3 years. I STILL weigh all of my food and enter it all into the tracker to ensure that I STAY there!
