    I lost Ten Pounds in Two Weeks

    My weight is down ten pounds, from 277 to 267.
    I ride one of my Daughter's bikes, and I was only able to put one water bottle cage on it.
    But then I added a handlebar basket, and I mounted a second water bottle cage to the small-mesh basket using fender-washers.
    I believe the extra water is helping me to take longer rides and burn more calories.

    How important is water to burning calories?

    Mount a 5 gallon water cooler(like the construction guys have) on the REAR rack. It's the only way to go.

    First, get a new bike. Second, I've been drinking around 20 cups a day, and have lost 14 pounds this month. I am 5'7.5 and weighed 152, I am now 138. So if you ask me, I swear by water.

    20 cups a day? My bladder would go on strike.

    I piss every 45 minutes to an hour. I feel much better drinking more water. People say that 8 cups of water is enough, I strongly disagree with that statement. I've personally felt much better drinking more water, both physically and mentally.

    I think my bladder is the size of a pea. My doctor has me increasing my water intake due to a separate issue and I am using the restroom like crazy. Perhaps my body will get used to the increased water intake and this will calm down. ugh

    Probably your body telling you not to drink so much.

    You will. My body adapted quickly. I used to drink 6-8 cups. And every time I went for a salty meal and drank more water I'd piss like a race horse the rest of the day. Now, the only reason I pee every 45 minutes is because I am in school and each class is 45 minutes. I don't wanna take the risk of holding it during passing period, and then have to piss 3/4 way through class.
