I had to do the water intake to avoid the entry level high blood pressure meds--diuretics. Thanks to my doctor giving me the option, I drink more than eight glasses of water, and only low sodium soft drinks if any. Green tea is my new healthy snack after dinner. It was a full year mastering the water intake before I joined SP.

I love the taste of food, but I love the taste of life even better!

I am drinking between 8-10 glasses of water a day!

Everyone is doing the best they can with what they have and where they are.

Remember that the scale isn't the only way to measure weightloss success!

I'm going to make up for yesterday's low water intake today. Just bought 5 bottles of Inko's white tea; so good! emoticon

Our water was unexpectedly turned off today due to water pipe maintenance. I was totally unprepared so my water intake was actually lower than usual. emoticon

When you exercise and sweat otherwise as much as I do, that doesn't happen. :) I actually had a couple more cups after that.

WOW! 14 cups would keep me in the bathroom all day! emoticon

I've had iced white/peach tea, soy milk, some water, and 1% milk. Maybe 4 cups?
