Talking

I drink about 120+ ounces a day. I used to drink a 2-litre of Diet Rite a day but have dropped that to one can. So getting my water in is easy as pie since it's all I drink.

I love it as long as it's ICE cold. What I do is fill water bottles and freeze them solid. I then move them to the door of my fridge and they start to thaw a bit, then I always have ICE cold water available. I take a bottle with me everywhere.

BTW...I read an article somewhere that said you should actually drink 1/2 your weight in ounces. I'm not sure if that's correct or not but the water has improved my weight loss and has really helped me to cut back on my food cravings.

My husband and children have also jumped on the water band wagon which makes me happy because I believe if my children make smart habits now it will help them when they're older.

So there's my .02
