I haven't felt well for the past couple of days, so water has been hard to swallow. (get the pun? giggle!) Back at it today!

I am glad I read this thread. It reminded me to go fill my water bottle. I do have trouble getting 8 cups of water in each day. I made it easier by keeping a water bottle beside my bed and drinking some each time I woke up. My dog has to go to the bathroom at least once every night, so it helped.

Yeah. I was in there for a muscle problem, too. Nothing to do with nausea or vomiting or anything like that. I was sure surprised! My saline was low, too. I don't use salt so since then I've been adding a wee bit to some things occasionally. I certainly know I don't need much!

Wow...I didn't know you could drink 8 and still be dehydrated. Yikes! I struggle with drinking enough but I am working hard on it. As a matter of fact I need to go get a big bottle right now. emoticon

I had to go to the ER several days ago, and had lots of lab tests done. Despite drinking my 8 glasses of water, and not having any gastrointestinal problems that day, I was still mildly dehydrated. So, the obvious thing to do when I got home was up my cups to ten a day. I may need more, who knows? But I'm right there with you. I'm not used to drinking this much every day, but I'm managing to get through. Using a straw helps. I also only drink Pur filtered water. Tap water just makes me nauseated and I really am wary of BPAs in bottled waters.

In winter I drink hot water with a squeeze of orange or lemon. It's so much easier to swallow on a cold day!

Boy-o-boy, I read the past posts and I was doing really good drinking water. Now I am not so good. I had a few health problems this year, so water was not the closest thing on my mind. I know when I had pneumonia this past October, the dr said to drink a lot liquids and I did drink around 8 glasses a water a day. I just kept it right at my night stand with a straw and that was no problem.
Now, I have to get back to it. I enjoy water more in the summer but not the favorite thing in the winter.

l want to say Happy New Year to everyone and have a safe one.

I do not like water so I drink Sobe Lifewater. They have vitamins and fruit flavors with 0 calories and is sweetened with Stevia . I finally stopped my habit of drinking diet Dr Pepper all day, so this is the only drink that satisfies my water intake

Cindy, I hear you. Now today before the day ends, I will consume 10 glasses of water. I do real well during the week. The weekend, I have to work on it.

You will do good too.

Cindy, that is a good idea. I had a good day today. I actually drank 10 glasses of water. I have to keep it up. The funny part is that I used to drink alot of water especially in the summer time. I guess that a person can get out of the habit and now I will get back into it. Cindy, thanks for the support. Everyone is awesome and sure appreciate all the advise and support that I get.

Maybe add a little lemon and maybe some stevia as well. That way you get some flavor and get your water in too.

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Thanks Donna. So far today I have drank 32 oz. of water but will have to continue. I am sure that I will do it. I used to drink alot before just got out of the habit. Our water is not good here too but do have reverse osmosis and that is good.

Char, I am not a good motivator for drinking plain water. Our water isn't that great. I take a bottle of water when I walk and during the day I only drink water if I am very thirsty. I drink lots of crystal lite and tea. Hope you do well in this goal.

I have a problem drinking enough water, too, but I've found something that works really well for me. I bought a water bottle at WalMart that has a straw in it, so instead of having to tip it up to drink, I can just suck up the water. It holds about 4 cups, I think, and I keep it with me at the computer, in the car, wherever, and just suck up the water. For some reason, drinking through a straw is a lot faster than trying to gulp all that water.
Good luck! emoticon

My goal is to drink 8-10 glasses of water a day. I normally do not have a problem but for some unknown reason I cannot get past 4 glasses of water a day. Any support I can get from anyone will be great. I have to say today I did drink 6 glasses of water a day so maybe I am on my way.
