You could always do a challenge and put your own goal in which gives you points

I agree. I am increasing my intake and don’t always make it to 8. If not one point for each glass, maybe one point for every two?
Thank you for bringing this up. It has bothered me each day as I am not up to 8 glasses per day, but often get 6!

I absolutely agree with this... often wondered why it was 5 for drinking 8 cups... 1 for 1 would be very fair.

I am so very thankful for SparkPeople. I cannot even begin to express how very grateful I am for this community.

I do have a trivial suggestion. I think the way points are given for water encourage all-or-nothing behavior. I think you should consider giving everyone one point for each cup of water and limiting it to eight points or so. When people substitute one cup of water for one cup of soda, it's going to make a big difference, so I think that choice should be acknowledged and rewarded.

Plus, when people are not used to drinking water, it's difficult to drink eight glasses in a day. Changing the points earned would encourage people to start making this change.

Thanks for considering my suggestion, and thank you for this community. It's a huge blessing for me.
