    You're doing great! Don't get too down on yourself for having diet soda. It takes a while to break habits.

    I'd like to join!

    I was at the amusement park on Wednesday, and got very overheated. Not a fun time. I suspect I was dehydrated, although I've believe I've been getting 8 cups of water daily.

    I rarely drink anything except water. Our city water tastes funny, so I buy it in plastic bottles, 16.0 FL each. I'm counting each bottle as 2 cups.

    Friday, I carefully counted my water consumption, and drove myself batty. Saturday I stared something new. Since then, each morning I've set aside 4 bottles and used a marker to number each one. That way I won't loose count! This morning I set aside 5 bottles! No one else is allowed to touch my labeled bottles! :)

    7/13: 10 cups
    7/14: 11 cups
    7/15: 10 cups

    Interesting. My weight had stalled for about 3 weeks. And on Saturday, it started to drop. And it's dropped each day since, for a total of one pound in the last 3 days! :) Wha-hoo!!!

    I sit possible to drink too much water? I was an avid diet soda drinker & about a month ago I cut down about 95% of what i was drinking. I am drinking between 6-10 glasses of water per day. I see sometimes when I weigh in if i had a lot of water that week my weight doesn't drop as much.

    7/15: 10 cups
    7/16: 10 cups
    7/17: 5 cups as of 11:32 a.m.! :)

    All bottled water. Last night I had to drink a little more than half of bottle #5 before bed. I woke up three times to pee! I'm going to get my five bottles in earlier today! But, still, it's a good time to invest in Scott Toilet Tissue! :)

    I think there are a lot of factors. I usually weigh myself first thing in the morning before I've had any water. Maybe it also depends on if you've had a lot of salt intake.

    Anyone else have any suggestions?

    I think you can take in too much fluid. For me yesterday was one of those days. 9 cups of water as well as juice coffee, tea and Baileys made for way too many trips to the bathroom!

    Today I will drink much less of all of those other fluids!
