I feel so silly. I took stock of what I've eaten over the past week, and that was fine, but I realized my water intake has slipped again. I eat a lot of fibre (including Benefibre or Metamucil), but the lack of enough water meant that the fibre couldn't do its job. Add to this that I take Ferrous Gluconate due to very low iron and it makes for not a happy digestive system. It occurred to me today when I was feeling bloated and uncomfortable. Things are remedied now, and I will keep this in mind.
It's amazing how one little thing can have such an effect.

Ugh, its something I'm seriously trying to work on... I'm satisfied if I get 6 to 8 a day, much less 8 or more..... I don't know how I lived on so little water before!!!

I have found that if I don't drink as much water as I should one day, then it's really hard for me to get back on track the next day and the next and the next.. well you get the picture.

I have a 32 ounce cup that is marked with the measurements. I fill it with breakfast, as soon as it's gone I fill it again and chug that down. After I have drank all 64 ounces then I'm allowed to have something else to drink. I try to drink at least 3 of my cups full, but I HAVE to drink at least those first 2.
