Thank you for opening the new thread Lisa.
I got all my water drank today, but it was after 5 PM when I started. I shall be up a lot tonight I'm afraid, fluid balancing. I really need to set that large glass of water on my work desk in the mornings. At least to get one drank earlier in the day. Most of the time I remember to do that. Today just blew past and here it was 5 PM and not one glass drank, unless I count a cup of decaf coffee (I know I can, I usually don't count it though).

Same thing happened to me today, Halfagain... I had two glasses for my pre- and breakfast pills and then got busy doing other stuff and now it's 10 pm and I'm drinking 6 glasses and taking the rest of my dinner pills with a snack! I am staying up for a bit anyhow since I worked last night and got home at 4:40 this morning. I should be able to 'drain the tank' most of the way before beddy but will probably wake up once to go.

Halfagain & Liana - I've done the same & seem to remember reading somewhere (???) that more than 2 cups of water at a time can be counter-productive, so I usually do without & start again next day. I'd love to know if that little piece of info is really true!

FWIW, now I try to have 2 cups in the morning with supplements (I set the full glass on the kitchen counter as a reminder). Then I take a 3-cup water bottle to work, which I vow to finish before going home (it works most days ). Then I only have 3 to make up in the evening. Plus there is usually a full 1-cup bottle in my car (in case I am tied up on the highway after engaging with an elk or something - )

On non-work days, the above plan goes out the window & I still don't have a solution for that! At least we are trying

I do find that my vision is affected if I don't get enough water, so I am definitely motivated - just forgetful. Maybe the brain is also affected by dehydration

My pain has returned. It isn't in the small of my back now, however, it is in my right hip.
I have a Dr appt next Monday to request more PT
Not quite sure why this has tightened up so badly but I can't seem to loosen it with the stretches/exercise I know to do.

I went for a walk today and pretty much limped home. Ugh!

So sorry about your pain, Lisa - some discomfort just can't be walked through. I hope you get some PT relief - or at least find out how to deal with whatever is happening.

Westwillow - that's really interesting about spacing out the water. I sort of wondered about that.

Lisa - I sure hope your doctor can help. I'm sending the positive thoughts your way.

Having 6 cups of water in that short period of time didn't seem to affect me as much as I thought it might. I went pee just before bed, and then didn't even wake up to go pee until 7 am. I had been so thirsty feeling though, when I finally started to drink that night that I chugged down 750 ml immediately in one go with no problem (didn't even take the water bottle away from my lips, just guzzled). The next 750 ml I drank a little slower.
I usually do it the same as westwillow - 2 c in the am with pre & breakfast pills, then 3 more by lunchtime or immediately after.

I do happen to have a bladder of steel though (as all my relatives with TB - 'tiny bladder' tell me, lol).

Hi Halfagain

I fill up a one liter water bottle in the am and then around again around noontime. This way only two bottles are a must and any water after supper is just a bonus.

Hi Halfagain,

Try using a liter bottle, you only have to fill it twice and you have you water for the day. It has worked for me.

That's a good idea otherwise you can lose track of how many times you go to fill your water glass in the day. My first two glasses with the pre and breakfast pills I just use my glass, but then I fill my 750 ml water bottle (it fits nicely in my car cupholder too) and drink it, then refill again & I'm done for the day. I usually end up having to use another glass of water for my calmag before bed anyhow so I get at least 8, if not more. I like that the 750 ml water bottle isn't too big to lug around. It even fits in my big Chloe bag (along with everything else I own, I think ) but don't tell my chiropractor, lol.

Lisa - I am so sorry to hear that you are struggling with pain. You have been such a trooper through all this process and an inspiration to all. Let us know what the doctor says, please?

That sounds like an amazing break, and that all the lessons you have learned on your IP journey have "stuck". Only up a single lb doing all that AND at a wedding .. nicely done!

Sorry to hear this, Lisa. Do you think the weight loss ie lack of "padding" from fat and fluid on your joints are making it more noticeable or worse, or did you have pain before you lost weight? Do you have arthritis (rheumatoid or osteo) in the family at all?

Hopefully your doc can get to the bottom of it and start the recovery process.
