DO YOU HAVE TROUBLE DRINKING 8 GLASSES OF WATER?

I went to wal-mart and bought a 2.2l h20 on the go bottle that holds 8 glasses of water! I think it cost 2 dollars and i don't like water so i put a can of diet rite orange pop in it and filled it up with water! Taste better than plain water and i don't dread drinking it so bad!

weighing in

I weigh myself everyday at the same time (1st thing in the morning) and watch the ounces inch down as well as the pounds. If I have a bad day and it shows in the scale I know it's time to get back on track.

How To Drink Enough Water

We have all heard it's important to drink at least 64 ounces of water a day. It's easier to do this if you treat a "glass" as more than 8 ounces of water when you drink it and have at least one "glass" with every meal and snack.

Go to bed hungry

In the past I ate for many reasons - not just because I was hungry. I find that "counting calories" reminds me that when I get that hunger pain at 10 PM I should just go to sleep instead of pouring myself a bowl of cold cereal. I'm learning to appreciate the feeling of hunger.

Track your spending to loose weight

To really keep me in check I track my debit and credit card purchases. Just about every bank has online banking these days so it's pretty easy to see what your bad habits are, how much it's hurting your wallet and your health.

Water and Flabby Skin

Wage war on flabby skin! Drink plenty of water, get plenty of rest, aim for 1 or 2 pounds of weight loss per week at the most, don't smoke (it wreaks havoc on skin cells), and eat healthy. ALL These things combined make for a healthier you, anyway, but its also good for your skin!

When I am in the car I drink water (a 5 count) at every red light. Also I make myself drink 16 oz before I can have that morning coffee - great way to get it into you fast in the morning & start the day off with a full feeling

Water, Water Everywhere!

Drinking enough water has always been a challenge for me. So, now I give myself an incentive. My daily rule is no diet soda, tea or flavored beverage until after I have my 64 ozs of water for the day. After I have consumed my 64 ozs of water, I can have any non-caloried beverage I want.
