I have a simple water challenge for anyone who wants to participate.

7 days of drinking 3 large glasses of water a day.

Adding ginger or lemon etc to the water or drinking naturally non-caffeinated herbal tea counts (as long as it's a big mug). No sweeteners of any kind are allowed but any water you do drink can be an addition to your usual drinks.

Try to drink one before you sleep (but can be at any time of the day) and come and check yourself off the list every day.

I want you to pay close attention to your skin during this challenge and report any changes to your skin or any other changes you notice during the challenge, at the end of the week.

Check off the list using a βœ”οΈ or the first letter of your name.

I.e. Day 1 - βœ”οΈ

Day 2 - βœ”οΈ

Day one starts tomorrow on the 29th of February. Add your day 1 βœ”οΈ anytime on the 1st of March for the previous day.

Enjoy πŸ’¦ πŸ₯›πŸ₯›πŸ₯› πŸ’¦ 😊

Yes your right. I drink glasses of water a lot through the day especially water with my meals, so I’ll side step this if I may. Thanks though. I’m a dummy! 🀣🀣

Hello MintTeaMascara I think that is a wonderful challenge. I've read for years that you should drink lots of water. Since I've started my 12 week challenge I put a wine bottle (1 litre) in the fridge filled with water and drink it throughout the day especially if I think I feel hungry. This I am doing twice a day so I'm drinking 2 litres. Again I've read that your body sends out the same signal if you are hungry or just thirsty. Well much to my surprise it's been very easy to drink it and sometimes after a couple of glasses my hunger just disappears like magic. Please try it everyone.

Challenge accepted! I'm pretty hopeless at remembering to drink water in the day which means I have disturbed sleep drinking it in the night.πŸ™„

Hi MintTeaMascara, Please add me to your list. Sounds like a great challenge for me. I’ve given up alcohol for Lent, and I think I’ll enjoy sitting down with a glass of water with a bit of lemon, cucumber or mint, when I get in from work or from a run, and before bed. I hadn’t thought of ginger but I’ll try a slice of that too.

Amazing, well done and that's sounds like a lovely plan. Just get your three glasses in today and come back tomorrow to post on this thread that you've successfully completed day one x

Hello, ClaireLovesChocolate, and welcome to the weight loss forum :)

You'll find everything you need to find your way around in our Pinned Posts healthunlocked.com/nhsweigh... I recommend joining a weekly weigh-in - today's host Lytham and the Tuesday Trimmers team will make you very welcome. Also check out the Daily Diary, where members post their meal plans.

The forum is full of information and support so dive straight in, chatting and supporting others, and I'm sure it will pay off for you :)

Lytham

Oh yes, do come and join the Tuesday Trimmers weigh in today, it'll be nice to have you! :-) x

Do I simply reply with tick or cross if I’ve managed the challenge?

MintTeaMascara

Well done every one who completed this week's challenge πŸŽ‰ πŸŽ‰ πŸŽ‰

I've noticed my eye lids have been more puffy (in a good way), my dry skin has - for the most part - cleared up and generally looks more radiant. I feel like I have more motivation in the mornings when I reach for a large mug of mint tea instead of some other drink 😊

I found I struggled a couple of days if I didn't start early but all in all its been achievable and a positive experience ❀️

Has any one else noticed any changes?

Day 7 βœ”οΈ. I’m really pleased that I completed this challenge as I’ve never really been a β€˜water’ person. However I did it and like you struggled a couple of times when I left the start a bit too late. I have noticed that my skin is a little smoother which is in itself a miracle as the wrinkles I’ve earned during my 79.5 years would really require a tub of polyfilla to make any real difference. I’m going to continue trying to drink more water. Thanks for the challenge.😊

MintTeaMascara

😊 You're welcome and I'm really glad you've tried this challenge.. Makes me happy 😊

I'm convinced water must be really good for all sorts of health related issues and body functions.

I'm 33 and the wrinkles have definitely started to set in. I guess the only thing left for me, is to fully embrace them and I'll be happy as long as there's some beautiful, deep set smile lines 😊

I think we're all beautiful no matter what we look like or how old we are when we find our inner contentment and positivity, and I think good diet and staying hydrated is a element towards achieving it.

Thank you for taking part πŸ™πŸ˜Š

Day 7 βœ… Found it easy enough to do and really enjoyed the water; I also had a turmeric β€œtea” sometimes when I wanted a hot drink. Can’t say my skin is especially more moist or radiant, but I feel generally well and I’ll probably continue to drink 3 extra glasses a day. Thanks for the suggestion, MintTeaMascara! x
