    Uts my first day today and I am struggling with water. It doesn't help that I have wakened up with a sore throat and I struggled to swallow my porridge.

    So farI have managed almost 2l but I feel water-logged and i'm sure I slush about when I walk. I am also bloody freezing :(:(

    The bloody freezing part is perfectly normal! Do you drink black tea or coffee? In a bind, these can help towards your water intake. And I remember feeling really sloshy when I first started, your body does get used to it though xx

    Yes, it does feel as if you are slooshing about for the first few days :eek: It will pass quite quickly though :)

    I found drinking the water very hard at first until I started drinking the sparkling water. For me it made it so much easier.

    It does get easier I promise. I could sometimes go almost a whole day without drinking anything, bad I know but I was just never thirsty. The first few days for me were really hard, but now I find that most days I can drink 2 1/2 litres without even thinking of it. The dry mouth makes sure of that! I can never drink more than 3 litres-but to get through even the required amount a day is a miracle for me. You'll be finding it second nature before you know it!

    You can take some paracetamol to help with the sore throat. Also, it is important that you drink 2 1/4 litres, so only another 1/4 litre to go. Unfortunately tea and coffee don't form part of the water intake. :)
