Eight glasses at 8 oz. is 32 oz. A liter is 33.2 oz. So, I buy one liter bottles of zero calorie and/or unsweetened flavored water. My favorite unsweetened flavored water carries the brand name "La Crox" although it comes only in 12 oz. cans. They come in eight packs and I'll drink four of them a day. My favorite zero calorie flavored water is Walmart's brand, "Clear American" which I buy in 1 L. bottles. I typically drink two of these a day!

I find I drink more water if I drink from a bottle. I have a steel bottle which I fill. Also, I count the water that I put into smoothies as part of my 8 cups of water.

I fill up a jug that holds eight glasses, put it on the counter and when its gone, I am done, although I usually go far beyond it as water is all I drink.

I find it really difficult to drink eight 8-oz glasses, so I use a 16 oz glass. That way I only have to drink four of them! Plus it is easier to count them. emoticon

I fill up a jug with the required amount and drink on it though out the day. Sometimes I will put slices of lemon in it, but I like it plain.

I must admit that it is still difficult for me to drink a lot of water. I'm not a soda addict, but I love my juice! Grape, apple, fruit blend, you name it and I'll pick that up before water, or at least I used to. I usually like to drink from a bottle (for some reason it seems like a tasks if I drink from a regular house cup). I try to save the environment a little by using the bottle more than once (refilling through out the day) and recycling when I'm done. One bottle with my meals which is 2 cups at least 3 times a day and one bottle or a half with my snacks.

One day at a time!

I have a water bottle that holds a little over 4 cups, so I fill it in the morning and again around two. If it is gone earlier I fill it, but I love water. It is my drink of choice. Of course, living in Colorado where it is so dry really helps.

Getting water has always been a struggle for me. I just don't care for it. But I agree with SlimmerKiwi. We do not need 8 glasses of water every day. So many of our foods have water, either naturally or added. And using your urine color and level of activity is a better gauge than counting your glasses.

After weighing myself and taking my thyroid medication, I get started on my 8 or more glasses of water by starting with 2 glasses. Then I get ready for work. When I sit down to eat my breakfast, I have another glass of water, this gets me to 3 glasses of water before I even leave the house! When I come home for lunch, I drink two glasses of herbal tea (counts as water), that gets me to 5 glasses of water. When I get home from work for the day (or sometime before 7:30 p.m.) I have two more glasses of water. I am now at 7 glasses of water. When I get ready to go to bed, I take my vitamins with one more glass of water. Voi ci, 8 glasses of water. If I drink wine or beer I will have more water to offset it.

I keep water by my bed and drink some before I get out of bed, Then I keep it with me throughout the day. I drink a little at a time throughout the day.

Thank you for the information. I will keep that in mind. I did hear that I didn't need to drink 8 glasses of water a day.

In all honesty, you DON'T need to. This is something that came about that wasn't based on science. Other fluids count (it doesn't HAVE to be water) and even foods have a fair bit of fluids. Think fruit and veges; think casseroles and soups; even cheese has fluids.

Rather than being guided by some unscientific rubbish that started many many years ago, be guided by the colour of your urine. Ideally it should be a pale yellow colour. If it is clear, you can cut back if you want. If you live in a hot climate or sweat a lot, then you may need more than if you are in a cooler climate; if you exercise a lot you may need more; and sometimes people on certain medications require more fluid, but again, let the colour of your urine and thirst be your guide, UNLESS your Dr says otherwise. I know people who have been limited to 2 cups of fluid in a day when they have had certain health issues.

The idea of water is more that if you drink lots of soda or fruit juice, you will be loading up on calories and and/or preservatives etc., but with water it is calorie free, and doesn't need preservatives.

So I have been trying for a couple months to get 8 glasses of water in a day and it seems really tough. Does anyone have a strategy on how to get all 8 in one day?
