How important is water really!



Recommended Posts

Are other losers loosing weight and not drinking as much Water as they have been told to drink? I can only manage about 40 Fluid ounces, I try every day to drink more but it makes me sick and I was becoming obsessed by it as it is drummed into us how important it is.

I’ve lost 63 pounds since August, so I’m about half way. I’m not too unhappy, I know I would probably have lost more if I drank more or would I? You tell me.

Also cant exercise because my hips packed in and I need a new one!

It helps weight loss. It's also a dehydration issue.

It's not just about the weightloss. You don't want to develop kidney problems after all you have done to get healthier.

I struggle to. But if I mix my drink with Crystal light it's easier. Water is hard for me to manage. But keep focusing. And split your water goal up. X amount before you allow your self Breakfast. Same for lunch and dinner. Then you have a small amount to have for bed.

In all honesty I don't like drinking when I'm out. So sometimes the majority of my water is had in the evening.

Thanks folks. I have had a word with myself and got an app to remind me to drink and to measure it out through the day. I won’t let it beat me.

It’s definitely harder for me to drink Water in the cold weather- so I drink a lot of tea. I always have earl grey and milk at my desk at work. And at night I love my mint tea with stevia. I also stack my car up and have a bottle here and there in my work bag and purse. If the water is not quickly accessible to me I don’t drink. Maybe that will help.
