    I really don't like but know that I have to start drinking loads.

    How much do you all drink a day?

    I drink quite a lot, but 2 litres spread out over the day isn't too bad really - plus it can be in the form of squash to make it taste nicer!

    I don't drink water at all. I live on very weak decaff tea with skimmed milk all day long.

    one week i stuck to the plan 100% drank at least 2 litres a day and did 2.5 hours of exercise over the week, compared my usual zero...and i lost 1lb!!! grrr!

    i spoke to my consultant about it and she asked why i was drinking loads of water... she pointed out that slimming world advise we drink 8 normal sized glasses of fluids a day and that can include tea, coffee, diet squash and diet soft drinks.

    since then i haven't bothered to try and get my 2 litres of water in a day as i don't particulalry like water unless it's ice cold and it hasn't affected my weight loss.

    I drink between 2-3 litres a day. Do you like no sugar added squash? I fill a litre water bottle with water and squash at the office and it seems to go down really easily so it's just second nature now

    :) Plus coffee dehydrates (which makes some retain water). I love my coffee too, so have started just having a cup of coffee when I get to the office in the morning as a treat.

    Good luck honey

    I've always drunk loads of water, on a normal day I probably have about 5 litres, on a hot day I dread to think how much I have:D

    I definately find it easier to drink more at work. I just keep a bottle of water on my desk and plough my way through it during the day....it helps that I am near a loo all day too!
    If I'm out, say shopping, it just becomes a pain trying to find a loo every 30 mins!!!

    I'm always trying to drink more water but it's pretty boring and I usually forget until bedtime, then I'll have some and be up half the night on the loo!
