No bubble bursteded :-) SP likes 8 but admits that there's no science behind it www.sparkpeople.com/community/ask_th
e_
experts.asp?q=81
and I have trouble with 8 so am starting with at least 3, which has the science behind it and which I can do consistently. In summer one is likely to need more though, especially if outside much and/or in "warmer" climates like the desert of Arizona :-)

I hope you have a great vacation and get down to your 140!

I'm sorry to burst your bubble, Margo, but SP does not go with the theory of 3; they recommend 8! And I think 8 is hard, but I'm trying my hardest.

Have been sort of a yo-yo of late, but have a great vacation coming up in just one week and hope to be down to 140 by the end of the month (ya, it's big dream, but I'm giving it my all). Eve

I'm working on making sure I get 3 glasses a day. That number has actually been studied (the 8 glasses someone made up and everyone just jumped on the band wagon) and found to help prevent a heart attack and I'm working on blood pressure and heart, etc. and find it easy enough to get at least three glasses.

Still drinking my water -- but some days it's hard to know you are getting the entire 8 glasses, especially if you aren't at home!

Our temperature has been running 110 degrees!!! I have been drinking my water, so I've been good there, wish I had been as good at losing weight!

Consuming a minimum of 8 glasses of water is not a problem for me. I have a 40 oz stainless steel water bottle that I fill with water and ice and take to my desk, that's 5 glasses. Two large decaf iced coffees, that 4 glasses, (I hope decaf counts). A glass in the morning with my medication, and a few glasses in the evening plus tea. I'm now floating! (I wish it was this easy NOT eating sweets!)

FYI: It is NOT hot in Salem, MA. emoticon We had three days of sun. Monday and Tuesday: Thunderstorms.

No problem with this one.

Above all, donít live with regrets. Approach life with perseverance and dedication to the things that matter most to you. Success is never easy. It remains up to you whether you will give up, or fight through the tough battles to earn whatever it is you want.

I can do this one - no problem. I carry my mug with me all the time. Have a dry mouth problem, so I have to drink water in order to get moisture into my mouth.

Water is sooooo important! I lost a friend to heat stroke when she was 19 because she went hiking without water. I know it's a pain to get down 8 glasses but it's too vital to ignore.

Do not be afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and, he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Let's see how many of us can actually drink that recommended 8 glasses of water each day. Record daily if you think of it, otherwise, catch up when you do record how you're doing.
July 1st & 2nd -- 8 glasses daily
July 3rd -- not sure, driving much of the day
July 4th -- think I did OK, but again (traveling)
July 5th -- DID GOOD TODAY!
