You have to drink water ALL THE TIME.
Do the math people. If a 130 pound woman needs 8 glasses of water a day, I need to just stick my head under a faucet and stay there.
Cocktails don't count, apparently. Neither does Diet Coke (oh, how I miss you, Diet Coke!!!). Never in my life have I been a water-drinking kind of person. It was OK on the side, as like, the back-up beverage, but never, never, as the liquid of choice. But now, I'm practically drowning in the stuff.
Mint, lemon juice, and lots and lots of ice help.
But I'd still rather drink 2x my weight in margaritas.
