Thank you everyone for all the great tips on making it easier to drink 8 glasses of water a day. I followed Enz's advice to drink from a 1L bottle instead of trying to pound down a bunch of glasses one after another and somehow that seems to work, thanks Enz!
I had to laugh at myself though, after 2 days of drinking 8 glasses I had a conversation with the wife that went like this:
Matt: "This 8 glasses a day thing isn't working, I haven't lost any weight."
Wife: "And what did you have for lunch yesterday?"
Matt: "Well, the company brought in lunch for a long meeting."
Wife: "And what was it?"
Matt: "Uhh, Italian"
Wife: "And what'd you have?"
Matt: "Umm, Spaghetti, Eggplant parm, fettucini pasta, garlic bread, a piece of of cake with all the colors of the Italian flag (green, red, white)......"
