Never let the water glass sit empty. I find that If I have my water or unsweetened green tea glass sitting around me I naturally keep drinking. As soon as it's empty, even if you don't feel thirsty that moment, refill it. You'll get those 8 glasses in before you know it!

I found that the pounds are starting to melt away when I started to drink more water. In order to meet my water intake goal, I have kept out a 32 oz. cup all day that I refill with water. If I'm craving a certain food, I just refill it with water. This has helped me lose weight, meet my water goal, and stay on track!
I also keep an empty gallon jug in the refrigerator that is always full of ice cold water. This helps me refill my water so I can refuel as I go along through the day. I find that I'm now drinking about 12 glasses of water per day.
