    Of drinking all this water i mean.

    Before LT i used to only drink when i was thirsty so its abit tricky getting used to it.

    I can only manage about 2 litres at the moment and even thats a trial.

    But i really want to be averaging about 3 litres a day!

    I dont drink coffee or tea so thats out.

    But i am trying soda water..its not great but hey ho.

    Any advice?

    Well, 2 litres is absolutely fine. It's the minimum recommendation from LT, i believe, so don't worry about that too much.

    I love soda/sparkling water :) it's my treat or pick me up. Just persevere and drink little and often and you'll find you probably increase what you're drinking over time.

    Always have a bottle with you, when shopping, at work etc.

    I found that at the beginning it was hard but the more you drink the more you need so i found that if i have 2 litres i get really thirsty and always manage at least 3 usually 4. hope it gets easier! xx

    Hi MissChunkymonkey
    Well, I was kinda used to drinking water before LT, but with Robinsons R....I hated water on its own. Now, three weeks on, if I dont drink say for about 10 mins, my mouth becomes dry and I think I would find Robinsons R too sweet now.
    It's true what xsarahloux says "the more you drink, the more you have to". I too have found that.
    Even when I go out to the shops, I am carrying a bottle and drinking it as I go. Before I know it I have finshed the bottle.
    I fill up my bottles in the morning..now have 2 x 1 ltre and 2 x 0.5 ltrs and drink this at work and then have some more in the evening.
    It is like anything habitual...it takes a while, but then it just seems to become part of you.
    Good luck!

    Ahh thankyou!

    Ive been carrying around a litre off water all day, first one down, just one more then im finished for the day.
    Going to try and up it to 2 litres and a half tomorrow.

    btw, a stone in two weeks? Thats fantastic!

    At the beginning I found it easier having half litre bottles. Not sure why. Just seemed to finish it quicker!
    I am almost certain you will get used to it and look back in a few weeks time and not even think about drinking water.
    Thanks - I am pleased at the loss....cant lose it quick enough to be honest, but "getting there" :)

    Have a good weekend and enjoy drinking :cool:

    I drink from the 1/2ltr bottles too. Seems to be more manageable that way. It does seem to get easier drinking more the longer you are on LT. Good luck.
