She went through my diary day by day and said I am following everything to a T and I am still loosing weight, just slower.

At the end she says, are you getting enough water and I had my water bottle in my hand and I said 'yeah' I drink at least 5 of these a day. She says NOOOOO, you should be drinking 2x that amount. She pointed to my IP diary and said for each box, that it equals one 'regular' bottle of water.

I was checking off 2 boxes for a full bottle of water. But... in the little box it says 8oz, well my water bottle has 16oz of water - so am I right in checking two.

I am confused now, and my regular coach is gone for another week ....
The water requirement is at least 64 oz of water per day. That is 8 - 8oz glasses of water. I just checked my P1 sheet and in bold at the top it says "minimum of 64 oz of water per day". That is 8 glasses.

Fun in the Sun Summer Challenge

5.8 lost, 19.2 to go
