    So last week I out on 1/2 lb, probably because it was my TOTM but a couple of people have asked me if I'm drinking enough and I'm probably not as I don't tend to get thirsty.

    Soooooo I'm going to try and have 5 large glasses of water (with sugar free squash) in addition to my usual 1 or 2 cups of tea. I normally manage 2 or 3 glasses if water so should be manageable.

    Anyone want to join me?

    I'm trying to drink more too... As soon as I get to work I fill up a 1.5 litre bottle of water and find that I sip from it all day. If I don't do it then I don't drink but if it's in front of me I seem to manage :)

    I'm definitely in on this, I hardly ever drink water, maybe one or two glasses with my dinner but that's it! I'm aiming for at least 6 glasses a day, starting today.

    I definitely think having a bottle helps.
    Everyday, I take a 1.5 L bottle of fizzy water to work and make it my mission to drink it during my 6 hour shift!
    Most days I start another one when I get home too.
    I really notice the difference when I don't drink enough water, I can feel the retention in my ankles and hands!

    I'm there, I'm totally in your water-gang. Our office has silly little cups from the water cooler which would mean I would have to go up there like every 2 seconds to get 2 litres in a day, so I have got a 1lr bottle with me today, a bottle of Robs Orange and Mango NAS squash, and I'm good to go! Is it silly that I sometimes think drinking water will add weight as I think it will retain?

    I don't drink enough but I'm trying to improve this, especially as I have heard that being hydrated helps your skin & as I have a lot to loose I want to do anything I can.

    I've been drinking quite a lot of fizzy, flavoured spring water. I find having it in a 500ml bottle means I drink more than out of a glass.

    I`ll join the water gang!!

    Like everyone else I probably don`t drink enough. Just downloaded an app for my phone to remind me. You hear the sound of water being poured when the phone thinks you need it. According to the app I need 8 glasses a day. Gives a round of applause if I reach the daily target! :)

    Well not doing very well so far, took a bottle out with me and didn't drink anything, too busy running around after my son, on the plus side no time to eat either!

    Having a glass with my lunch and aim to drink at least one more before my son wakes from his nap.

    Hope everyone else is doing better than me!

    How's everyone doing today? Throughout the day I've had a 1.5 litre bottle, that's a LOT for me! Will have another glass or two before bed time.
