ADD TO rather than Take Away. Gradually add water to your diet, and build on that, rather than intentionally trying to drink less soda or juice. If you're drniking more water, you will automatically drink less juice and soda, and you'll prevent yourself from rebelling because you feel deprived.

I found that when I drink my full 8 glasses of water in a day it has a huge impact on my weight loss. If I have to break from my eating plan for work or some other function drinking my water seems to grant forgiveness and the scale doesn't jump. I also was struggling to drop any more lbs and when I started drinking my water again, the weight started to fall off again. Not to mention its easier to eat less if I drink a full 64 oz every day.
Have a designated water bottle/container and just keep filling it up. I have a cup thats 24 oz so I know that once I've drank 3 full bottles I achieved my water goals for the day.
One thing that I have done is whenever I feel like I want a diet pepsi I have opted for water instead, have been here a week now and so far haven,t had any.It is helping me to start drinking the water I need.Still haven't met the 8 cups a day yet,but soon I will!!!
