Believe me, I understand. I was a Mountain Dew freak and would have never thought the day would come when I didn't want one...now its so sweet to me that I don't even look for soda any more.

That's what I'm doing wrong...not exercising enough. But I do agree once you get used to drinking it, it does get easier. A few months ago I never would have believed I would drink even 8 cups in one day.

After my AM cardio, which is intense, I drink about 20 oz; on the way to the office I have another 20 oz or so then before lunch my first bottle is done (64 oz). After lunch I start with the 2nd bottle; I normally finish it when I'm done with my PM cardion & strength training sessions. I don't normally log this, but after that I probably drink another 10 oz or so before my shower. I know its a lot, but once you get used to having the bottle near you, its hard not to drink.

9/4 - 128 oz
9/5 - 64 oz (so far)

I did 8 cups today and had to have one margarita with it being so hot here.

Hotmama...that does sound like alot, but maybe because you are exercising alot???
130 oz = 16 cups of water
60 oz = 7 cups of water
maybe you should aim between the two. When I uped my intake I really noticed my skin wasn't so dry.

I DRINK 60 OZ OF WATER PER DAY BUT MY RECOMMENDED IS OVER 130 OZ IS THAT TO MUCH?

Texasgal....count those anyway, if it's the way you get your water in, it is still considered good for you (as long as you count if they have calories).
It took me along time to get up to drinking the 8 cups a day and some days it is still hard. I was a big diet coke drinker and I have tried to limit it to one can a day. One week I really made an effort to drink as much water as I could and I lost more weight...there has to be a conection!
Here is a good web site about how much we should be drinking....
