Day 6: Drink Water, Lose Weight | 30-Day Weight Loss-athon

Day-6

Time for Day 6 of the 30-Day Weight Loss-athon.

Read the steps first, then take 10 minutes to complete them.

Move fast, act quickly and stop over-thinking. Ready?

What You Need:

  • Glass
  • Bottle
  • Water.

Step 1

First, let’s get the facts. We’ve all heard that drinking water helps weight loss, but is it really true?

The answer, according to scientific research, is yep!

It seems that good old H2O can help with weight loss by:

  • Helping you to eat less and/or
  • Affecting your metabolism.

And you don’t have to go crazy: a couple of glasses before meals is a good start.

But remember, it’s not what you know, it’s what you do. Just deciding to drink more water is easy – turning it into a habit is the tricky part.

Step 2

So let’s look for ways to make water drinking easy and habitual.

For instance, you could adopt any or several of these habits:

  • Drink 2 glasses of water on waking – keep a glass and bottle by your bed as a reminder
  • Fill a 2-litre bottle of water at the start of the day and aim to empty it by the end
  • When offered a drink, ask for water
  • Keep a bottle and glass of water on your desk as you work, so it’s easy to sip any time
  • Keep a bottle and glass of water on the coffee table when you’re reading or watching TV, so it’s easy to sip any time
  • Buy yourself an attractive water bottle or glass so you enjoy drinking more
  • Associate meals with water – have a drink before you sit down to eat.

Step 3

Of course, in this program we never make a decision without taking some sort of action to help change the behavior.

So choose something you can do now to help set your new water-drinking behavior.

For example:

  • Put a glass and bottle of water by your bed, desk or coffee table
  • Fill a 2-litre bottle of water for today’s drinking
  • Go buy yourself an cute water bottle and/or glass
  • Put a glass on top of your plates as a reminder to drink before or with meals.

And you’re done!

    I am so ready for this, brought a large cup with top and straw to keep at work, fill it up as soon as I get there and refill at lunch. Have been getting in the habit of having water with lemon at meals rather than soda.

  • http://facebook.com/profile.php?id=705138995 Megan Bussinger Shepherd

    I love water… cutting out soda and drinking all water!

  • http://facebook.com/profile.php?id=1309671335 Dawn Witt

    This is going to be my biggest challenge thus far! I am not a water drinker – no flavor, but a taste. So, I guess I will be buying stock in lemons! I’ll have to pretend I’m at a four-star hotel and put lemon water pitchers around the house.

    If you know me, you know I love my sweet tea and I gladly gave it up in hopes that it will help me on my weight loss adventure and make my brain and body work better. I don’t really know how much I drink in a day because I have a 2.5 gallon jug in the fridge and I constantly refill my water bottle and with my husband and kids joining me in the water consumption I just have to guess some days I am better than others on it but at least I cut out 90% of the sweet tea, honestly I cant remember the last time I made a gallon at home :)

    This should be an easy/(ier) challenge for me. I gave up the bulk of my sodas a few years ago. However, I have become lazy about drinking water throughout the day. SO, Today, I am going to renew my efforts by drinking two glasses of water when I get up and keeping water with my at all times. I have a Tyvek cup. that I keep with me. I love it because it keeps my water cold when I leave it in my car for short periods of time (No small feat for El Paso, Texas).

    I work in water and drink it constantly so this is an easy task for me yay! 😀 FYI to others, a few retailers like target and albertson’s grocery sell a water bottle with a counting ring that you twist to track your consumption. Confession I have three of them. lol

    I bring 100 ounces of ice water with me to work everyday. Most days I finish that before I leave work. Then I try to drink more at home at night. Do you think I can count all those minutes I spend walking to the bathroom towards my exercise minutes?

    I will make a habit of putting a glass of water on top of my dinner plate to take up room and make me drink water.

    Playing catch up here. This one will be easy. I really like water, I just have to try and tweak some habits. 5 years ago I was drinking 6-8 liters of cola a day, now I might have one soda a day, which I will dilute with mineral water. I probably drink way too much coffee (even if it is black and sugar free) I have stuck a post it note on my coffee machine to remind me to have a glass of water first. This will be especially helpful in the mornings as the first thing I do when I get up is go the coffee machine. I’m also going to ditch my 1/2 sodas and stick with fresh lime and water.

    When I started my journey over 2 years ago, I hated water and was perpetually dehydrated. Now this is a breeze. I fill up my Brita pitcher the night before and almost always empty the large container in a day!

  • http://facebook.com/profile.php?id=1523079766 Elsa de la Paz

    Today I will cut out soda and drink water. When going out to eat I will get water with lemon for extra flavor.

    Finally an easy one for me! I am a huge water drinker. It is the only thing I drink most days.

    I have a handy 24oz water bottle. I drink 2-3 bottles full of water a day.

  • http://facebook.com/profile.php?id=634538479 Kelly Williams

    I’m normally a person who only drinks water if she is thirsty so this one is going to be difficult for me. In the past I’ve tried to drink 8 glasses or water and always give up by the second day bcos it gives me a headache. I think the headache comes bcos I’m drink a lot more water to what my body is used to so I’ve decided I’m going to start with one glass today, then two tomorrow, then three the following day and build it up to 8 glasses. I like the idea to drink a glass of water before each meal so I might use that to help me with the increased water intake.

  • http://facebook.com/profile.php?id=818000031 Emma Hutley

    I keep a bottle of water by my bed to drink in morning at night. And lately at work I keep a bottle or glass of water on my desk to drink throughout the day. Definitely drinking more water than I was a month ago but room to improve even more!

  • http://facebook.com/profile.php?id=1409723471 Shana McAuley

    I keep a glass at my desk and refill it often. Since I gave up pop there isn’t much else calling to me in terms of drinks. Except Starbucks but I have been staying away. Just water! I haven’t tracked how much I actually drink. I’ll try to keep track this coming week to see if I am reaching the 8 glasses per day.

  • http://facebook.com/profile.php?id=668211813 Nancy Meffen

    Drinking water as we speak. I always drink my water in the mornings, it’s remembering for the rest of the day. As I have tons of water bottles that don’t seem to inspire me. I will focus on 2 glasses before each meal and before bed. That makes 8 cups for the day. A squeeze of lemon is always a good way to add some flavor minus the calories.

  • http://facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000279030933 Michele Curlin

    I try to have two bottles of water before lunch which is 6 cups, so I am going to commit to having 1 glass of water before each meal.

    This is another challenge I have in the bag! I have a 24 oz insulated cup that I fill up 3 times a day with water or a sugar-free propel drink. Really helps me to keep me in check!

  • http://facebook.com/profile.php?id=623393744 Cathy Beale

    I drink lots of water at home but at work, there are some days I don’t drink anything at all! My action for this task to fill a 2L bottle each morning and to drink it all every day. I’m also going to get a nice cup to drink it from.

  • http://facebook.com/profile.php?id=669285297 Nancy Nethercott

    Yay for water with a slice of lemon or Japanese barley tea…no caffeine and no sugar, but great chicory taste! Drinking lots 😉

    I’ve been working on the water thing for a while and have been a little lax on this vacation, but sometime this weekend I’ll edge back toward normal healthy drinking.

    I’m a few days late on this mission. I was away from home for the Easter Holiday… but drinking water is something I’ve been doing pretty well for the last several years. Especially since I bought myself a stainless stee, l double-walled water bottle fom flylady.com. It keeps my water cold ALL the time, doesn’t sweat, and my hands don’t get cold from the ice water in it. LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I could try to get water in first thing in the morning though, I tend to not get started till noonish, or when I exercise and sometimes I play ” catch up” at night.

    A little behind from a busy week end but don’t feel too bad. Again this is a habit I already have. I drink 10 or more ounces of water before allow myself my cup of coffee in the morning, fill a 20 ounce bottle of water to have on my desk at work and take frequent sips usually finishing by the end of the day sometimes have to refill. Not quite as good about it at night, this is an area I will work on this week.

  • http://facebook.com/profile.php?id=517699902 Jessica Lawson

    I got my water bottle beside my bed first thing in the morning would probably be the easiest time for me if I make it a habit as I do not drink much water.

    I have now got myself a purple plastic beaker (it’s quite a big one) to keep on my desk at work. I’ve even painted my name on it so it doesn’t get lost amongst all the rubbish & filth that’s in the kitchen at work. So every day, when I get into the office & I’m waiting for my computer to start up, I will fill that purple cup & pop it on my desk for me to sip throughout the day.

    At weekends / days I’m not at work, then I have made a pact with myself to drink 5 glasses of water a day (I have smaller glasses at home!). So this should be a good start to the ‘drinking more water’ challenge!

    I gotta say that I do not like plain water. It does nothing for me. To help with drinking it I make a pitcher of Crystal Light Ice Tea instead. I am remaking this about every day 1/2.

    I have an app for my Droid called “Drink Water Beta” (free) that you can use to track how many glasses you drink each day. Most days I drink at least 8 glasses but there are days when I only drink 5 or 6. It still helps to have the “proof” on my home screen for those days when I need to drink more.

    I have checked in the past that the fact of having with me one small (handy) bottle of water 500ml and sipping on it through out the day made me snack less. (you just need to refill it 4 times and you know you have drank 2 litres).

    My job keeps me on the road most of the day. So, I bought a gallon jug of water and saved the jug. I fill it every morning and take it with me. I refill my sipper bottle throughout the day. Started this a few months ago and love it. I feel so much less drawn out at the end of the day when I stay hydrated. My hard part is getting in enough water when I am off. So using your tips to start with 2 glasses when I awake, before meals and I put my just filled on the kitchen counter so every time I go into the kitchen it reminds me to have a glass of water.

    WHEW…all caught up! I started my water drinking yesterday morning and I am not quite up to 64 oz yet, but I am working on it. I have already noticed the drastic cut into my appetite it has made. I used to be a huge water drinker, but getting remarried – I had forgotten how easy it is to take on your mates bad habits. He’s a diet soda drinker and it became a staple in my house. I started by substituting a sugar free, sodium free seltzer and adding a lemon. It’s working like a charm. I hope by week’s end I am back on regular water and up to the eight glasses a day…so excited I think these are slow but lasting changes.

    Haha! I realized the other day I had started drinking soda again with out thought (hubby asked if I wanted a drink while he was in the kitchen and brought me a glass of soda instead of a water bottle that was in the fridge) So I started yesterday morning with a water bottle while I am waiting for my coffee (20 ounce) and challenging myself w/my going out bottle. Its a 32 ounce Naglene water bottle and I challenge myself to finish it by the end of the work day. yesterday I didn’t succeed and today I start a vacation so it will be a bit of challenge but I can do this.

    I’ve been doing this for some time now. I make sure to drink at least a gallon a day, and on days with harder, longer workouts I usually drink more like 2 gallons. I do splurge on soda once in a while (diet Coke) and I love my unsweetened ice tea. I can’t wait for summer to get here so I can have my sun tea again!

    I have bought a 750 ml decorative bottle and have been using it for a month now. I drink about a liter during my workout and drink about 2 more cups during the day at work. I do a lot of commuting from work, gym, church and home so I drink a lot also while I am driving. As I have said in another post, I don’t drink pop, wine, tea or coffee so my only choices are juice, V8, water and milk.

    Loooove warm water with a squeeze or 2 of lemon juice first thing in the morning. It’s also great at rehydrating in summer when drinking plain water just doesn’t seem to quench my thirst. I’ve read somewhere that the acidity in the lemon juice does something to the water molecules making them easier for the body to absorb. Doesn’t really matter what the mechanicsm is, I just know it works! Thanksfully I’ve always liked my water so this one isn’t difficult for me to do at all.

    Hello to everyone:
    Terry Tip: If your body retains water [mine does] be responsible and check with your doctor to see what he wants you to drink. Usually people with heart conditions and high blood pressure can cause water retention.
    Congratulations to you all and I’m very proud of you. Keep up the good work and continue to post to be accountable. Good Luck to everyone.

    I cannot say that I love water but I now that I feel better after drinking the water as opposed to the sticky soda. I do however love the benefits that water gives. Since I began this challenge, I have drank more water than I have in a long time. Nestle has flavored water that has ZERO calories and the flavors are not too bad.

    Funny, I just did this yesterday. I found that with all of the back and forth from the hospital to the hotel, I wasn’t drinking nearly enough water. I bought a liter bottle of water to keep with me where ever I go. Until I can get home and implement some of these other tricks, I’ll just make sure I’m drinking two of those bottles a day.

    I keep a 32 oz plastic cup on my desk at work and fill it up at least three times during the day (usually more). At home I have an acryllic cup with built in lid and straw. I found that if you are not used to drinking water, you may have to experiment with it a little. I prefer mine with a straw and with ice so it’s really cold but I know others who drink it room temperature or with lemon or lime added.

    This is my CHALLENGE. I don’t like water. However I have a decorative water container with spiket and I filled it this morning with ice, water and 3 orange slices. It tastes pretty good. In the evenings I like to drink the Special K protein powder and sometimes the Crystal light pure. So now I will add only half a pouch. :)

    I had been drinking 2 litres of water a day but got out of the habit as the cooler days appeared. I bought myself a 2 litre filtering jug and used to fill it up and had it on my desk at work. I started holidays yesterday so I have bought the jug home and had it in my mind to start the 2 litres a day again while I am at home. I can’t believe that this has now appeared as my day 6 challenge. It must have been an omen. So I am filling my jug now and will challenge myself to start drinking the 2 litres every day.

    I have a favorite cup I use for water. One thing I am doing to drink water is to make sure I drink water before I drink a non-water drink. So, when I am thirsty and want something (like a second cup of water), I know I have to drink a cup of water first.
    I do like water, so that helps.

    I have a 3 cup water bottle that I try to carry with me all day. I aim to fill it twice a day (however I don’t live in a perfect world). I have noticed though that I lose a little extra weight on a weekly basis when I stick to 6-8 glasses of water per day. So this really does work.

Another thing I was told to take your current weight and divide in half and that is the # of “true” ounces you are to drink.. which can seem like A LOT OF WATER.. and a lot of bathroom trips..lol!

    I chuckled at the “what you need” 😀 Pretty basic! I developed the water habit a number of years ago; I’m pretty consistent at it. I don’t drink anything else, really. So I guess I should be thankful I have some of the disciplines down…that means I should be able to concentrate more on the ones I DON’T have, yet.
