I will try this too. I also hate water and have to add flavor so I can drink it. I found MIO liquid at Walmart's. It is a totally free flavor additive that you can squirt into your water. They have several flavors. It doesn't spill when you throw it into your purse or lunch bag. It is cheaper for me because I think the bottled water flavors are too strong. I can add as much or as little as I want with this. I know I will be drinking a lot of this as the weather gets warmer. Especially at work where the temps can reach 110 F or more in the summer. In the winter it is all coffee or tea for me.

I have water refillable water bottles at work, in my bedroom and the kitchen so I have easy access to water at all times. I order water every time when I go out too...even if I get a soda, I get a water and then I drink less soda. I just make a conscious effort to chug that water!

Awhile back I did WW and did the same as you except I could only drink 2 glasses of water in the am but it did get some of the drinking out of the way. I am going to have to start this again. I just joined sparkpeople and looking forward to a new healthier lifestyle and taking off about 40 lbs. Thanks.

I drink four glasses first thing in the morning. That way I get a big chunk out of the way early on. I've always been a person getting up during the night to urinate, so I am not bothered by he late night runs to the bathroom!

Me, too. I need to drink more between 3 and 6pm. I'm beginning to hate getting up an hour or two after going to bed.

Lori I agree with you. If you have to pee a lot anyway, why not drink the water too! It does make it a lot easier when you have the containers for your water. It's like a big reminder for me when it's right there on my desk...even when I am running around seeing patients, I keep coming back to my desk and the bottle is waiting for me...LOL!

2/11: My day off but I did pretty good with water again today: 14 waters and still sipping.

I have to pee a lot regardless of whether I drink a lot of water or not, so I might as well drink emoticon

I have another glass or so to go tonight, but that won't be a problem. I keep a 2-liter container in my office and as long as I *remember* to fill it I drink all day long

I definitely crave it now too. It has become a great habit to have now. It makes it easier to have the water bottles around. I don't have any excuses then. Boy could I come up with them before. "I just got settled in on the couch. Do I have to get up and get my water?" LOL! I even put the workouts on pause to get some water too.

So far I am up to 10 glasses for today and still sipping. I get less water in on my days off for some reason....but not all of the time.

I have a 32 ounce water bottle in the bedroom, one in the kitchen and a 48 ounce bottle at work. Once I get to drinking, I just go for it. Sometimes I substitute one or two of those waters with tea. And yes I do pee a lot! I drink 4-6 glasses while getting ready for work. So by the time I get there, I have to run in to the bathroom. My staff all know to get out of my way when I come in the door! LOL!

I do great during the week when I have a bottle of water on my desk all the time. It's the weekends that I have trouble with getting in even half of the water I need.

I'll join in the challenge and hope that helps me start the habit of 8 glasses everyday of the week!
