    Hi, I just wanted to introduce myself. :wave_cry:

    My name is Rachel and I live in Quarry Bank, West Midlands!!

    I have re-joined the CD having lost 3 stone at the beginning of the year and gaining 1 and a half stone since June :cry:

    I have been on the CD for 2 weeks but have only lost 5lbs (I haven't been doing it properly) but am now determined to stick to Sole Source and get this weight off!

    If I can shift a stone by Christmas, dh has promised to buy me a new dress!!

    Anyway, how much water do you consume in an average day. I have so far drunk 3 litres but somehow think it should be more by this time of day. I am aiming to drink 5 litres a day or is this too much??

    Hi Rachel!

    Welcome back!

    What a fantastic incentive to keep you on track with a dress!!! You can shift a stone in no time Hun!!!

    On average I drink 4 litres a day - more if I am dancing...I teach Ceroc Jive to beginners and can get rather warm!!! I also have 2 cans of Coke Zero and a cup of Bouillon....I do wake up in the morning thirsty, so maybe I should try and sqeeze in another half a litre!!!
    If you can manage 5 litres a day, then go for it!!

    I look forward to reading more posts from you!

    The water flavourings are ok but you should not have any more than a teaspoonful a day....dosn't sound much I know but it is very concentrated and goes along way.
