YEEEEEAAAAHHHH!!! I did it!!! I got my 8 glasses of water in!!! I know it's silly to be so excited - but this has been a hard one for me. It helped being able to count my morning tea - and I barely missed the sugar. Today is a good day!

8 glasses downed. I am finding it relatively easy to drink 8 glasses a day at the moment. I fill a couple of 3 litre bottles and make sure that I work my way through them, - or at least the best part of them. emoticon

The decaf tea would count if you left out the sugar. I try to carry around a bottle of water with me all the time. It's hard to get started but now I find that the more water I drink, the more I want to drink. Some days I have 8 glasses in before noon!

I'm really having a hard time with this. I drink decaf black tea in the morning, with a bit of sugar - but could leave that out if it would make the tea count towards my goal. What have others done to start the water habit?

@DJS-DEBBIE it's a habit. I'll drink 20oz when I first wake up, another 20oz before 10:30am, another 20oz before 12:30pm, 20oz before 3pm. Then I'll drink another 20oz after my work out. It's just routine for me. Today I will have dranked 13.5 cups!!!! emoticon

You are doing great, Shanqeion! Most days I find it so easy to get in the water but some days I still get too busy at work and don't drink anything at all! I got in 10 cups of water after 6 PM last night. Needless to say, I got up a few times during the night.

What kind of tea do you drink? Can you slip in some decaf or herbal?

Actually, milk has a natural sugar (lactose) so I don't think that would count.

I have trouble with getting in the water but I haven't been counting all the other fluids either. I guess I could count my two glasses of milk? What do you think?

Flavored water does count. I would go with pretty much anything that doesn't have any sugar (even natural sugar) and no caffeine.

I personally think natural flavored water, with no sweetners, etc., would count as "just plain water." After all, no unnatural chemical, and no calories.

First couple of days was rough and I could only drink at the most 6. Now 8 or more is no problem. Any one have thoughts on flavored water.

I think I drink more than my share of water. I drink anywhere between 10-12 cups of water a day, maybe more. I do sweat a lot especially at work because I work in medical records & I move around a lot. I'm going to buy a pedometer 2 track my steps because I walk around all day. But I love drinking water. It has done good for my skin & hair & I eat a lot less to. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I find the water really helps a lot. My skin is a lot better and I really think it is due to water.

For the first time yesterday, I got in over 8 glasses of water and other fluids... and it does indeed make a difference! I feel great!

Wow that makes a lot more sense! I've used this site before, and I was always at 4-5 cups of water a day maximum... but I was drinking 18 oz "cups". The "cups per day" is literally cups per day--like use a measuring cup fluid ounces. If that's the case, if I carry my water bottle around with me (it is a big one that holds about 40 oz of liquid,) I could definitely hit that goal just by filling it up a couple times. I've been recording it all wrong in the past....

Great way to put it Debbie!! i see FAR too may people going by the half your weight in ounces myth..thats great if you weigh 150 not so if you are more.
Folks i would add..if you have any question, check with your doc. I am one of the people that CANNOT go over 12 cups a day due to a medical problem. If you have potassium retention problems BE SURE to check with your doc!!

I have seen a lot of misconceptions out there about water intake i.e., there is no real reason to drink water or be careful about drinking too much. I am taking a nutrition class right now and have learned a lot about this recently.

Drinking water is not about weight loss it is about the proper functioning of our cells, metabolism, etc. Water is a part of many metabolic functions and provides the way to transport materials to our cells as well as carrying waste products away. Water is one of six nutrients that support the growth, maintenance and repair of our bodies, along with protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals.

It is possible to have too much water, but they are talking about 10 to 20 liters (40 to 80 cups) taken in a few hours time. It is usually seen in endurance athlete - for them the recommendation is to limit intake during times of heavy sweating to 1 to 1.5 liters per hour (that's 4 to 6 cups in one hour).

The AI (Adequate Intake) recommendation is 3.7 liters per day for men and 2.7 liters per day for women from all sources, which includes the water in the foods we eat. If you burn 2000 calories a day, the recommendation is 8 to 12 cups. The easy calculation is 1/2 cup for every 100 calories expended, which would come in at 10 cups for 2000 calories.
