Because of the meds I take, I'm thirsty all the time. I drink 20 oz at breakfast lunch & dinner & at bedtime to take meds. Hang in there. Exercise is the hard thing for me because of fibromyalgia & arthritis.
Hi !! everyone , for me it is very hard to drink water , I have to keep reminding myself about drinking my water . I don't drink sodas ,or juices , its just that water gets in my forget list sometimes ....
I am starting a journey , I want to find myself ,find my courage , find the person , I know I am and I was meant to be , I want to walk everyday free of pain and shame and I want to feel good without this extra skin , extra weight ,or this folds of skin that sweat like crazy , I want to smile more and set small goals and reach them , it is time to stop been afraid of my weight , and how I look and feel, I know I can do it and I know I will do it by next year I will be a smaller version of me .

Hi! I made a conscious effort to switch to water a few years ago because all of the diet colas, etc. were not sitting well with my stomach. I can say, at least for me, that now I actually get to craving the water and not the sodas. In fact, I rarely drink anything carbonated anymore. It's usually either water or lemonade.
Some days water is a struggle for me too.. I do add a little juice, or crystal light to mine sometimes... just enough for a little flavor. I track my water here, and that encourages me to drink more too. I notice on days I may not get here, that I start slipping again.

Hi, Sarah - welcome to the gang. This truly is a great group of people (if I say so myself). I hope you find the same warmth, support and inspiration here that so many of us have.
As for water, do track it - you'll find it useful over time to be able to look back at your consumption. I've found that, not surprisingly, the more aware I am of water consumption the more I actually consume. And the more I exercise, the more I drink, too, as I try to get in at least 1-2 glasses before plus 12-16 oz. during each workout.
Enjoy SP and your journey. You CAN lose that weight for the last time - and find fitness, health and strength along the way.
