Geez I wish I was getting in 3 liters a day. On May 1st I set a goal of 64 oz and I've been doing really good meeting that or at least close to it either way i think it's really helping my weight loss.

I drink 2-3 liters per day of water flavoured with an herbal tea bag.

I use two 24oz bottles that I refill constantly throughout the days. So I don't know, I drink about six to seven of those every day but maybe more if I work out real hard.

I can usually get in between 100-120oz of water, then a 1 liter bottle of seltzer water.

I go by water bottles. 2 regular-sized water bottles = 1 liter. It's SO much easier for me this way, for some reason. :D

I drink water almost constantly - it's half past ten in the morning here, and I've already had 750mL.

This might be TMI, but I go by the colour of my pee. If it's dark, then I grab a couple of glasses of water when I wash my hands. It's the best way I've found of avoiding dehydration in the horrible summers we have here.

Hey, no fair --- some of you people are half mermaid or something, the way you guzzle those gallons! :D

I drink 2 liters (or 8 glasses 8 ounces each) of water each day, but I really should be drinking more. And I have found that if I keep my water up over 2 liters, I lose weight quicker.

Good question!

I average 108 ounces per day. All I drink is water; it has been this way for me for over a year now. At times I will have a hot decaf tea but that is only when I have a sore throat. No more diet sodas for me!

Do you not like the taste of water? I'm asking because I HATE drinking large quantities of water... BUT if I put a mint teabag or some fruity herbal tea in it than it's so much easier to drink large quantities :)

Question: Has drinking water all the time help you lose weight? I drink about 32 oz a day.

80 fluid ounces a day plus 50 fl oz black instant coffee/herb tea.

Like Couch I do a pee check and drink more there and then if it looks a bit dark.

Usually it's well spaced out during the day but if my work means I'm going to be far from facilities, my drinking is sometimes a bit concentrated into bursts.

I do think it's helped me lose weight. It's definitely helped with fluid retention.

It's kinda funny that the secret to getting rid of water retention is....more water! LOL Seriously though...I can tell a difference on the days I drink alot and the days I don't....

I try to drink at least 135 oz a day. I have heard several times that you should do half your body weight.

lots, I'd say roughly 6 or 7 cups during the day and maybe, and 8 or so at night.

How do you water counters keep track? I find it a bit difficult. I usually drink from a pint glass or a water bottle, so roughly 50ml a pop. I lose count though! I find it tedious beyond belief to log all my glasses/bottles, and I find that I forget how much I have actually had.

I drink between 2 and 4 liters a day. I'm a teacher and stuck in a classroom for hours without a bathroom, so I can't drink much then. But, drinking water comes naturally to me. I drink it without having to think about it. It's the time in the classroom where I have to focus on not drinking too much. :?:

I use the same bottle throughout the day...I drink 4 of them which comes out to 120 oz. I have an aluminum bottle and a Brita filter pitcher...good for the environment, easy to keep track of.

That's what I need. I'm refilling 2-3 of the same water bottles per day. I hate the waste, though!

I'm a water guzzler both at home and work. I keep a large powerade type bottle at my work station and typically refill it several times a day.

I have a one liter water bottle that I refill 2-3 times :) Morning, afternoon and night!

You know you drink enough when you feel SICK (almost literally) of water, haha. My stomach is turning because I just chugged another 1/2 liter.

Lately, I've been drinking about 64 ounces a day. However, I don't push myself to keep drinking or look at the color of my pee or anything like that. If I'm thirsty, I drink. Like most things, I've learned that moderation is key. There is such a thing as too much water. Hard to believe, I know. It's called water poisoning and it involved an imbalance in your electrolytes. I can't remember who, but we have a member her on 3FC who's mother ended up in the hospital for drinking too much water.

Really? That's like 2.5 GALLONS, isn't it? Holy Niagara Falls!!It sure is! I'm doing a clinical trial & one of the side effects is excessive thirst. My doctor is encouraging me to drink drink drink. That is why I love these threads. They tickle my funny bone. And 320 is on a hot day where I've broken a sweat & don't drink anything else except milk.

Someone asked about the counting. I have 2 empty juice bottles that I refill from the tap, they are 64 ounces. Then I have 2-3 liter bottles that I also refill, about 32 ounces. (Aquafina is preferred, the opening of their bottles is bigger, and for excessive thirst, there is nothing better than getting water when you want it.) If I have 3 "bottles" of water during the day & 4 of the liter sized during the course of my day, it adds up to 320. Some days are less.

I rinse the bottles out at night with sudsy hot water & vinegar.

This was a good thread, I don't drink enough either. The past several days no water at all, just other beverages. This has motivated me to get the water going today. Thank you.
