Water Worries

#1
Hi Everybody . Am on day 4 today and doing well so far . I am trying to get in as much water as possible but I am finding it hard. I used to drink lots of tea and coffee before and not water which i know is bad. Is there anyone with a tip to help me drink this water. I cant seem to drink whole glasses at a time only about half a glass . I have tried the sports bottle which is good when I remember it. My husband said to put a reminder in my phone every hour which I might try today !!!;)

How about setting certain times to drink? I always have a 500ml bottle whilst I'm getting ready in the morning and before I have my first cup of tea. Another bottle on the way to work. Another at lunchtime and another on the way home. Then fit another in the evening and you've had your 2.5l.

I think everyone has to find a way that suits them best. For me, I have a glass of boiled water (let it cool a bit first of course!!!) then I always take out small bottles of sparkling water (each bottle is a pint as I measured it) I drink about 3 of these throughout the day. I have another cooled boiled water after my soup and drink another pint of either still or sparkling water. I find the sparling water freshens my breath and stops the YAK feeling onmy tongue (brushing your tongue helps too) although if you are only on day 4 you may not have the YUK yet!!!! (something to look forward to ha ha ha)
the water take in does get easier though I find I am more thirsty now so its easier to manage it, at first I had to force it down. Good luck and stick with it x x

Sorry you have to struggle with the water, hun. Have always preferred water to sodas, squashes, teas or coffees so I'm really, really lucky. You will automatically feel a lot thirsty so hopefully it will get easier for you. It's a good habit to take up anyway.

Hi Mitchillinwoman, Yup! I dont wanna go there again EVER! Have to say after week 2 I am finding this LT diet really easy, my house has never been so clean and tidy as I seem to have lots of energy, I'm even sleeping better...I used to wake up through the night and one of the main things on my mind was my obese, unattractive body and how the hell was I going to lose it....again! (started dieting at 16, yo-yoing all the way to 54......) My blood pressure and cholesterol was high and my younger brother has asked me if I would be prepared to donate a kidney as he has to start dialysis...poor thing. So my weight and my health needs to be at the healthiest levels for more than one reason, now. This works for me, if it's working for you, then try and shut out all the negativity and just come on here, love, for your encouragement.

Hi Michillinwoman. We started on the same day so I can sympathise with how you feel right now. I would say ignore any negative comments. You have your own reasons for doing the diet. It's perfectly healthy (compared to past eating habits that got you overweight in the first place). It's monitored by someone medical. Other peoples comments are likely to be jealousy of either your willpower to do it, your courage to make a change - however extreme the method may be - or the fact that you will become slimmer than them!
Good luck for Saturday WI.

Well done. 11lb is fantastic.

I was really disappointed as I was only 6lb down. But, I was only 5 days in and the pharmacist weighed me 5 days before I started - and before I has chips, chinese etc. According to my scales, I'm 9lb down.

P. :cry:
