14 days with no diet pop- just the #!@%! water. The "secret" to giving up pop- don't buy it.
Still don't enjoy the water, but getting in 8 glasses per day. I hope this can become a habit.

No problem because I prefer drinking water over anyhting else. I drink over 64 oz's a day.

I do not like water- this has been a problem all my life. New routine: 2 mugs of coffee, then 4 mugs of hot water...no more diet Coke, just 4 more glasses of water. We will see how long I can keep this up!

I increased my water this week and found myself getting up each night to use the bathroom around 3 in the morning. Some nights I couldn't get back to sleep. The chiropractor I work with said that my body will adjust and not to give up all the water because of it. Anyhow, last night I didn't get up to pee! WooHoo!

YES we can do this!!! I have started to carry my water bottle with me everywhere so I don't have any excuse to buy diet coke anymore. I only drink water or very weak black tea.

Yes, I can do it. I already drink at least 8 glasses a day, sometime more. Water is about the only thing I drink, except for the occasional glass of wine or margarita emoticon emoticon

I just joined this site and so far I have 3 glasses down! Which is great for me considering I'm not a huge fan of water! I'm hoping the more I drink it, the more I'll enjoy!

It should be easy for me since I keep a large cup on my desk and drink water all day. I never keep track of how many times I fill it. This will motivate me to keep track of how many times I fill the glass at work and how much i drink at home.

Hi Bella! Wow, Mrs. Blackrose - haven't been called that before! Thank you for courtesy, but you can just call me Jenn G. emoticon

I myself drink a ridiculous amount of water in a day... probably getting close to your 3L. The reason that I think this is okay is because my body would tell me if it wasn't, and I didn't just sit down one day and decide to drink 3L.

Everyone is different, and we all need to listen to our bodies. If someone already drinks a lot of water, they are going to notice if they cut back. Their bodies are used to it. If someone doesn't drink a lot, and decides to add a little bit at a time (like 8 glasses in a day) - they will notice a big difference. Probably more bathroom breaks, but possibly other positive changes as well.

Is it possible to hurt yourself if you drink too much water in a day? Yes, it is possible - but in your case, I wouldn't worry about it if you are already doing well. Is it possible to hurt yourself by not drinking enough water in a day? Yes, it is possible - but that doesn't mean hook yourself up to a garden hose either.

The same with everything else healthy for us - change a little bit at a time, so our bodies can adjust.

Hope that was helpful to everyone, and Bella!

Ms Black Rose~
In the morning the first thing I do is fill up a 3 L jug and work on drinking it by 10pm. Some days it works and most days it just doesn't. Today I am not doing so well. I have only had about a 1/2L. My fiance doesn't help sometimes because he thinks I am drinking too much water. Help. Am I helping or hurting myself by drinking so much?

Ciao~~
Bella

I will have to start tomorrow, as it is 10:30pm and I want to sleep in my bed, which is not a water bed, nor should it turn in to one tonight. :-)

I think we can! For all those of us who's simple goal is to get those 8 little tiny 8oz glasses of water in a day, here is a chance to be accountable! If this is a challenge you need, then please post daily if you made it or not. We shall not be defeated by that water...


(except maybe when running to the bathroom!) Good luck, recruits!
