@GINGERKID86 @MONIQUEDVA Thank you for inspiring me to get my water in!

I got it all in yesterday (and forgot to track it!)

And I am shooting for a repeat today!


Good luck to you both!

@GINGERKID86 I'm so glad to hear you're doing better! None of us is perfect or is this easy for. You just keep trying & you'll get there!!!

@AMAOLIVIA I would think the inability to go to the bathroom regularly would be a deterrent. That's a rough one. I would drink at least one BEFORE I ever got to school & made sure I went as soon as I got there. Try to drink one before lunch. Pee at lunch. One on the afternoon. Pee when the kids go home. Then you really only need one more bottle.

My struggle is drinking enough water at work. I'm in and out of classes and it's hard to take water with me. I gotta work out a system to get it in though.,,

Yesterday (Tuesday) I managed to drink ALL 64 oz of water for the first time in the LONGEST time so I'm kind of proud of myself.

How are you doing with the water @GINGERKID86 ???

So I noticed that I haven't been drinking my usual amount of water. I haven't put in any other beverages so that means I'm probably allowing myself to get at least partially dehydrated. So I am working on being more diligent & really paying attention & getting my water in. 16 oz so far today!

How about YOU??? emoticon

The hubby is doing good! He only has to wear his brace if there is torrential rain. He did have to get some special shoes, but they are tennis shoes and they are black so he is happy. They make his feet feel supported.

I drank 4 bottles of water yesterday. That is 64 ounces!! I was so happy. I haven't done that in a long time. I am only at 24 so far today, but I have plenty of time!

So I have worked at the PT job for the past 4 days. As a result, I have drank more than 64 oz each day BC of sweating & the heat. Sadly, sweating in & of itself does not seem to be a weight loss technique.

I did drink more water that day and even had some over the weekend which has been a struggle for me. I have not had quite 16 ounces today.

OMG...I drank ALL the water yesterday. I drank a 16 oz on the way in to work. I drank 2 32 oz bottles. THEN I drank another 16 oz last night with dinner & meds. So that is 96 oz!!! And even with all the sweat at Zumba I still got up to pee 2 or 3 times last night. WOW!!!

I had the 2 BIG 32 oz bottlers, plus a 12 oz can of sparkling water with lunch (trying to forget about soda!!!) and a 16 oz bottle on the way on to work. Wowsa!!! And b/c I sweated so much last night @ Zumba I didn't even have to pee all night long. 92 ounces!!!

It's 1130 am. I drank a small bottle on the way in to work today. (16 oz). Now I'm working on my first 32 oz bottle. And I have zumba tonight so I will drink at least 2 of the 32 oz ones. Feeling positive!

I don't use any of the water apps, but I've seen other people post about them. Go to the Google or Apple Store & look for Free Water Apps & I bet you will find one that appeals to you!

32 oz down today. 32 more to go.

Those are some really great ideas! What is really crazy to me is that I used to be thirsty more??!! What apps are you talking about? I have never heard of those.

Wow...so by nature you just aren't a thirsty person. I can't imagine (me personally) drinking so little during the day. So basically you just have to train yourself. Always carry a bottle of water with you. Maybe download one of those apps for water consumption (they have some really FUN ones!) or set an alarm on your computer or phone to remind you to drink every 15 minutes. And start small. Start with one bottle per day & work up over like 16 weeks to get to 8 bottles. And FLAVOR your water so that you like the taste so that is positive reinforcement.

Usually the only other thing I drink is Coke zero in a can. Most days I only have one can, but sometimes I have two. I drink a protein shake for breakfast.

Hey Ginger~~Do you drink OTHER things? Coffee? Tea? Juice? Milk? My first suggestion is that if you do...try subbing out one glass of water for one of any of those others. Probably not your caffeine first thing in the morning...but anything after that is fair game.

It's Tuesday...is your water bottle filled & ready to go? I'm filling my 32 oz bottle RIGHT NOW!!!

I haven't been very thirsty so I haven't been drinking as much. It is harder to drink water when you aren't thirsty.

Water is going MUCH better for me for whatever reason. Perhaps it's the warm up in temps. Perhaps it's the water bottle I am using. I don't know. But I'm getting more & more consistent with the 64 oz per day. 1/2 of my weight in ounces...yeah...NOT HAPPENING!!! But I would like to get up closer to 96 oz per day.

So I want to know if I'm weird or if anyone else is this way. I have to find that I have to "trick myself" by switching it up every so often. Right now, I'm trying to drink 2 of the 32 oz bottles of water per day. I got to the point where I didn't like m Tervis. I will drink out of a bottle for awhile & then all of a sudden, I no longer like that bottle & won't drink water. SO...for right now the 32 oz bottle is working...we shall see for how long.
