    We all know how water is so good for us and a great boost to weight loss but are we drinking enough? I know I'm not!

    So....in order to see what effect it has on the scales, I'm planning on making sure that I drink at least 2lt of water a day (as well as sticking with plan this week!).

    Next week is due to be my star week so maybe drinking more water will help with a loss but it will be interesting to see if the extra water helps or not!

    Anyone want to join me?

    Me too. I used to be SO good with water, gallons and gallons of it. But now I'm rubbish. I have my diet coke and maybe a pint of orange sugarfree cordial. Rubbish!

    Count me in.

    I'll join you, I already drink a 2litre bottle of water a day but a bit more won't do me any harm, hopefully it will do me some good.

    I'm up for it. I am tea mad and although I sit by a water cooler at work I rarely drink any. * week just arrived so anything that can help would be good:D

    I drink at least 2l a day and honestly Ive never found it affects my weight loss one way or the other but I know its good for me and better than the massive amount of diet coke I used to knock back

    I'm in too, i hardly drink anything to be honest, maybe a couple of cups of diluting juice or fizzy drinks but never as much water as i should.

    Think i will go for 2 litres per day for a week and see how i go.

    I'll join in with this as I am completing my Food diary 100% for the 2nd week running.Completed my food diary 100% last week and lost 2lb so I am interested to see if this will change with more water being drunk.

    I'll be one of the laboratory guinea pigs in this experiment. :)

    Hi guys

    I tried to drink more water than usual last week and managed to loose 1.5lb so I am convinced that this works. Hope that spurs you on.

    I will join in with you this week too.

    I'm in! I started trying to decrease the amount of diet coke i drink and increasing the amount of water last week for the following reasons:

    1. i've been having trouble sleeping so need to cut out caffiene in the evening.
    2. to help me lose weight.
    3. to save money.
    4. to give my teeth a break from all that acid.

    It's funny though, i should move my desk into the toilet and work as that is where i spend most of my time now LOL
