I have gone from the person who was easily drinking 3 or 4 32 oz bottles of water a day (I'm a refiller not individual bottles) to the person who didn't even get in her 48 oz yesterday. My leader shared that she has also been struggling with water lately. So she has a deal with herself. No Starbucks until her water is in.

Since I'm not a coffee girl, but a diet Coke junkie, I am telling myself that I can't have my morning diet Coke until I have gotten in my 48 oz of water. I'm posting it here so you can all help me be accountable. I am drinking my coke right now (I learned that in CA-all soda is coke, but what kind of coke do you like to drink? Dr. Pepper? Sprite? Diet Coke? LOL) because I guzzled down that 48 oz this morning.

Now it's potty time! LOL

This sounds like fun, might get me moving more on my blog.

A friend just told me that in TX all soda is Coke (she lived there for a while), for us here in California, at least to us natives it's, all soda versus pop in the mid-west. ;)

Good trick from your leader, that will definitely get you to start getting your water back in. :)

The most success I have with drinking water is to drink 8 or 16 ounces every time I have a "food" encounter...every meal...snack... whatever. I think tying the water to something else is just a good "reminder" if I could just remind myself to do it!

I am one of those people who can easily go all day without drinking a thing, I have never needed liquid for some reason, so a year ago, when I started weight watchers, It was totally hard, I've increased my water intake quite a bit since then (when I was getting only the 6 or 8 required glasses), now I get about a gallon in. But it's totally a conscious effort, if I dont think of it, I won't do it.

I like to guzzle a good 32 oz. right away in the morning with my vitamin. After that, whatever else I get throughout the day is bonus.

I drink mine room temperature, can't handle guzzling ice cold water.

We call it soda pop around these parts. Personally, I call it whatever it is, Coke, Pepsi, 7-up, etc.

Yikes! You'll be in the potty all day long! Good for you thoug, I think it's a grea idea!

Ahh, a fellow Diet Coke junkie. I feel like I'm among friends... hehe

I'd rather drink Diet Coke all day long too, but I don't let myself have one until lunch time. And I measure all my water drinking around 2p.m.: I try to have half of my water in by 2, then I make sure I work on the second half after 2. That way I spread it throughout the day.

(All "coke" around this part of Texas too.")
