Hi Everyone,

I am starting a new 100% Waterwise Challenge from Monday 2nd Jan - Sunday 15th Jan

If you would like to join, could you please let me know by Thursday 5th, and you have to have been waterwise from 2nd jan.

so far there is
Cobie_lee - 3L
Harleygirl - 2L
Winterboots - 3L
TwistedLily - 2L

Remember our waterwise motto - the more we drink the more we shrink but please do not go overboard as it can do more harm than good..

Thanks

I would love to be part of this challenge .... even though I know nothing about it ..... but I'm sure it will do me good as water is my main problem ... I find it so hard to drink all ther water.

Pls let me know what is involved.

Basically it is like a deviation free challenge. You write how much water you aim to drink each day - between 2-3L (mine is 3L, but you can have more if you like) and you drink it. At the end of the 2 weeks if you have drunk that amount daily you get to add to your sig.. then the more consecutive (probably spelt wrong) fortnights you drink that amount (you sign up again each fortnight) you add a x2, x3 depends on how many you have done.. Im hoping to be able to add a new challenge each fortnight (depending on how busy I get). I hope that explains it..

Ok, thanks for that. I really struggle to drink water. I'm lucky if I drink a litre a day so this sounds like something I should try.

Count me in to drink 2L a day....

I would like to be in this as well. Mine would be 3 litres a day also, which can be a challenge if not at home all day.

OOh I would love to be added into this challenge too. Add me in for 2litres? Any extra water will be a bonus for me. And I'll aim at upping this amount for the next water challenge.

Thanks,
Kelly

Water challenge is a great idea - it is my big downfall. I have made myself the last week drink 2 litres, but I do find it a struggle sometimes (I used to only drink 1 glass a day, sometimes zero!!).

I accept the challenge, so put me down for 2 litres a day!

So far, so good for me. I try to have at least 2 glasses (250mls each) before I get up out of bed. I also drink diet coke... but always have a glass of chilled water beforehand.

And yep, having water if I feel hungry - helps me enormously!!

I Have 2x 1.5L water bottles which I fill up each night before bed. I try to drink one before 1pm and the other after.. I also need to get a large pop top bottle for when I have to do photo-shoots (im a professional photographer)

Vivo, I'm just like you, I struggle with the waterso this is a good challenge for me.
I have been going ok, getting my 2L's in per day but it is a struggle at the end of he day squeezing the last bit in.

I've decided to try and drink my 2 litres of water before 4pm each day ... otherwise I am up all night going to the toilet!

It makes a difference knowing I'm in a challenge and that I report in that I drank the water (or not). So far so good.

I'm sad to say that I have failed at this challenge. I find it so hard to get my water in especially when I'm at work. I might have some days where I have had my 2L and some days where I woulod only get 1L in.
