Default Water intake, too much? Too little?

I know that I'm likely mildly dehydrated. I hate drinking water and am plagued with the symptoms of it. The problem is, when I start drinking water in the amounts I'm supposed to, I pee ALL THE TIME. It's like as soon as it goes in, it comes out. However, drinking more water does trigger my thirst, so I know I'm thirsty, I just keep peeing everything I drink, lol.

Will it stop when I get used to drinking a normal amount? Usually I will drink 1 or 2 glasses of liquids a day. My goals currently are 6 to 8 glasses. What do you think?

Also, my urine isn't dark or anything, even when I'm not drinking a lot.

Are you drinking any other liquids? Those count. You also get water from the food you eat, if you eat veggies and fruits, and things cooked in water, like pasta and rice. Not a lot of water, but it's there.

But you do still need to drink water, at least 6 glasses. But since you usually only drink 1 or 2, maybe you can add an additional glass every few days or every week. You definitely will have to go to the bathroom more often at first, but eventually your body gets used to the higher level of water and it stops just running through you.

I'm downing a lot of water and like you, peeing a lot. Even getting up overnight which I NEVER do & I thought I was drinking a lot before.

From what I've heard, your bladder adjusts to the new intake after a couple of weeks.

Would it help you to add lemon and ice to your water? Maybe a wedge of orange? Keep a bottle of water near you and sip whenever you remember, I'm sure through the course of the day you'll make it through the minimum requirement.
