Hey everyone, I used to take a med that caused decreased thirst (pretty severe) and when I went off it I pretty much have it forever now. Sometimes I'll drink two cups of water over the course of 3 days. I NEED to fix this. I think some other people might benefit from this.

If you have a smart phone (I'm guessing any of them that support apps would work? I have an iphone 4, dunno about other phones) Anyhow, check out the app, Waterlogged. It sends you push reminders to drink (you st up the days and times) and it plays a little water sound (if you want) and then it asks you to record your water intake.

I hope this helps!

I have 'Droid and I couldn't find the water log. However, while I was looking...

Have you tried the Gluten-free scanner app?

Nice idea, but no smartphone here.

For the smartphone challenged, I suggest a large water bottle that you keep near you. Refill as necessary. I have a 32 oz. one for around the house, a smaller one that fits my gym bag. But if I fill and drink the large one 4 times, I've met my water goal for the day.

Hmm, might be a good idea for me. I also have a super hard time remembering to drink.

ha, wish it were so simple. I seriously NEVER am without a water bottle at home, where I spend most of my time. it's 64 oz. by the end of the night, with it sitting right in front of me, I will have drank about 8 oz if that. :(
