    Thought that I'd start today's daily thread.

    Well after my dissapointing WI yesterday my CDC has told me to drink drink and drink a whole lot more.

    So today will be a very Wet Water Wednesday!

    Hoping that all this water won't mean that I'll be taking too many loo breaks (mind you it is nice to get 2 minutes repite from the daily grind).

    I know that loads of you do so well with water but some of us struggle.

    So any top tips and motivation from those who've cracked it please share :)

    morning :) do you use the water flavours ?? I struggle to get 2 litres of plain water but with the orange flavour I manage 4 litres easily :) every evening I fill 2 2 litre bottles with water and 1/2 teaspoon of orange flavour ( I find its perfect at this concentration ) in each and put them in the fridge , I then have a couple of 750 ml water sports bottles that I fill up throughout the day , and I always finish both bottles :)

    I have just got home from work , and had my 1st 100 % day in about 10 days yesterday :) I am now going to go to bed till lunch time ( as i am not workng tonight ) then I have to take a cheque into the bank as my new job forgot to pay me on friday so I have a cheque ... grrr cconsidering I havent had any pay since 20th december... I hope it clears quickly !

    I am going to have another 100 % SS+ day ( 4 packs ) and do this till the weekend then get back on 810 .... thats the plan and I am going to bloody well stick to it !!!!

    I too love the orange water flavouring and couldn't drink nowhere near enough without it. I always drink mine hot though when I am at home and I find that I drink a lot more that way than when I drink it cold x

    Certainly going to be a water-filled wednesday for me as it is raining and am taking Master T for a swim this afternoon....I am also terrible with the water in the winter. I drink warm water with fresh ginger in.....not sure if it'd officially legal, but it has not held me back so far. Must admit after reading these posts think I should order some flavouring.

    Mr T away tonight so no tempatation watching him eat, phew!

    Kimmie those 3lbs will be gone by Saturday, don't worry.

    Good luck all, happy Water filled Wednesday x

    I was doing really well with water. I went from drinking 2 or 3 cups of fluid a day (diet coke or coffee definitely no water!) Then I managed to drink four litres a day for a month!
    Main things that helped me were:
    - ensuring I had 8 500ml bottles in the fridge each day
    - drinking out of small bottles helped it seem achievable to drink it all
    - drinking out of small bottles helped keep it cold (couldn't drink room temp water)
    - using toilet breaks and shakes as a reward for finishing my current bottle of water (ie however desperate I was for toilet would not let myself go until I had finished my current bottle of water)
    - having a bottle before I ate breakfast
    - finally setting reminders throughout the day on my phone to go and get a new bottle of water

    Following all of this I was able to quite easily fit it all in and after the first week it felt quite normal.

    Didn't manage even 1 and a half litres any day last week (sore teeth hurt more with the water) and I think my WI this week reflects it.

    I'm back in the mission today.

    Oddest thing.....since I've upped my water, I feel thirsty a lot. I've never really felt thirsty before.

    Water is my weakness... so, good thread title, Mocha!

    Like Katie and Cheryl: The flavourings help me get my water in, too. (But, I use Crystal Light -- which is a US product and tastes better to me.)

    I have a one liter refillable water bottle that I use for plain water. I've tried keeping rubberbands on it (3) and moving them from top to bottom as I drink and refill, but they don't stay on. I think I'll just put ticks on the calendar every time I refill the bottle.

    I drink a lot of coffee (I'm from Seattle the "home" of Starbucks). ;)

    JK -- I would have to wear a TenaLady if I did not go to loo until... lol.

    Morning all!

    Another day of work for me, not going to be getting up to anything special really!

    Lost 4lbs in 2 days on the weekend which really amazed me, I thought the days of big losses were over! :D

    Got my official WI tomorrow at 4.30pm, so will be looking forward to see what the result is :)

    Hope you all have a great water filled Wednesday!

    Hi Nikkinack -- I do not know if it is "allowed" -- but it has never kicked me out of ketosis nor affected my losses. When I did LL I statted out using their drink flavourings, and then switched to Crystal Light and saw no changes.

    From the Wikipedia listing:

    Crystal Light is the name of a sugar-free beverage (initially sold as a water soluble beverage powder). It comes in many different flavors, and is made by Kraft Foods.
    Originally marketed in 1982 with Linda Evans as its spokesperson, the company later had celebrities Raquel Welch and Priscilla Presley as spokeswomen. The catch phrase for each of the ads was, "I believe in Crystal Light, because I believe in me!"[citation needed]
    It has five calories per serving, and a serving is 8 fluid ounces. Most of the drinks also have no carbohydrates.
    Crystal Light is usually sweetened with aspartame, but the newer prepared beverages are now sweetened with sucralose.
    Crystal Light has recently begun producing Crystal Light Energy, which contains 60 mg of caffeine per serving, or 120 mg caffeine per packet.
    Crystal Light also recently released Pure Fitness, a "naturally sweetened, low calorie fitness drink." Pure Fitness is sweetened with the natural sweetener Truvia.
