The points challenge was created many years ago by me when I counted every drop of water and I thought it was a MUST. Now I think it contributes to overall health, but I think you can achieve goal without counting every oz.
The points challenges give 1 point for water. You get to choose how much water you have to drink, but if you don't count your water (like me) it makes it hard to participate.
So I wonder, as we prepare for the start of the September points challenge, is it time to take the water point out and just focus on food and exercise?
