i think i drink LOADS of water... i actually went to the doctor to ask about how dehydrated i often feel, i drink about 2 litres a day, only one cup of caffeinated tea, no coffee, and i don't like fizzy drinks (sodas) and rarely have juices in the house - i'm lucky in that regard perhaps... but they tested me for diabetes and it's nothing, i'm just naturally thirsty apparently... ?!

i still like my odd glass of wine or a pint... but that's maybe once or twice a week atm.

Be careful about drinking too much water, especially when working out. I used to have this killer problem where half way through my workout I would feel like shit and start drinking more water thinking it was due to being dehydrated and it turned out I was OVER hydrating myself. Half a gallon isn't that much, though.. but who knows. Keep it in mind!

I know I don't drink enough water! My job doesn't allow me to take enough bathroom breaks, so my limit is one small bottle of water ... until I get off work and even then ... I just drink orange juice.

I need to drink more water. My skin is getting gross. X_X

I try to drink enough to keep the urine in the toilet bowl nearly clear or clear to the casual glance. That tells me I have enough in my body (except right after the multivitamin, when it's nearly always neon from the vitamin) so I'm avoiding headaches and lethargy due to lack of water.

Lol :)

-- No I don't think I do. Most of my drinks are coffee (3-4) and other than that I *try* to have water or fruit tea here and there but it doesn't even amount to one daily on top of the coffee. Thanks for the reminder though, I'm going to try and be more conscious of my water intake now.

I want to here from the people on here living in deserts lol

I've always hated drinking water prior to forcing myself to like it in early 2015. Much much better than the times I'd be chugging 4 cans of coca cola daily. I drink sugary beverages sparingly now.

I still don't feel like I drink enough of it, tho.
