    I realised at 6pm today that the only drink that I've had all day was this morning at about 9am, a cup of tea.

    I can go all day without any drinks & don't feel thirsty.

    This probably isn't very good for me or SW...I guess if I drank loads I'd lose lots.

    This also could be why I feel so tired all the time.

    Any one else like this or am I the only weird one?

    I'm exactly the same!

    Can go all day and realise I've only had 1 or 2 cups of coffee! And no, I never get thirsty either?!

    Weird! x

    I'm with you on this one however I do aim to drink 2 litres a day however I find that I am actually thirsty even though I am drinking!! So I guess that makes me the opposite!

    No this happened to me today, and is why I skipped gym for fear of getting a migraine, as it was stupendously hot in Sfampton today!

    I am exactly the same, I thought It was just me. I very often don't drink all day at work. Sometimes I do have a drink in the mornings at home, but thats only when OH makes it for me otherwise I don't.
    There was a day a couple of weeks back when I was walking home after 5pm and realised I hadn't had a drink since the day before!
    In the mornings Its just not something I think to do and then as you say, I don't feel thirsty.
    I think its just what i have always been used to. I know its really bad and I sometimes have made a real effort to drink throughout the day but it only lasts a couple of days and i start to forget again.
    I think it would help with weight loss too and I'm sure I often eat because I recognise thirst as hunger??
    Its really hard to change it permanantly though but i will make a effort.

    Thats a good idea. Its finding a way to remember thats the hard part really. Thanks, thats worth a try, I'm sure it will help with the weightloss and can't be very good at all for my health.
    Thank you!

    I noticed that when I was on tablets recently that gave me a dry mouth, I was chewing gum to counteract it, and I drank even less than normal!

    My problem is that I then drink copious glasses of water/tea and diet coke all evening and get up four times a night to wee!
    So now I have a bleep on my phone every 2 hours to remind me
