So many of these facts hit home for me. Were you, like me unaware of the dangers? I remembered about the time I was still commuting to the larger city I was working in that was nearly a 3-hour drive one way.
Naturally, I stayed all week, back home on Fridays evenings. Who would not be tired and achy from a week of being really busy and working? Sleeping in hotels. I often thought it alright to take a Tylenol or two with my last sip of water for the drive home.
Then made this little drive with no more water. Of course, I did not want to need a stop for the bathroom. That would make the trip home a few minutes longer. So no more water.
Now I had the fuzzy mind of a Tylenol, plus the fuzzy mind of being dehydrated!
Yes, that is driving impaired. Did not even realize it. Have you been guilty of this? I knew there were times I felt disoriented.Just thought it was normal.

The goal for weight loss has been stated somewhere as drinking 1/2 oz. water for every pound you weigh can be helpful. At least for those who need to be a healthier lower weight.
For even faster loss you should consume 1 oz. of water for every lb. you weigh.
People, that is a lot of water. I had to work at it a bit to get down 2 qt. or 64 oz. a day. So I am pleased to be at the 3 qt. or 96 oz. a day.
Think that staying will stay at this level during the next month will be the goal. Then add another 1/2 pt. for a few days, increasing as I am able to do so. Just feeling too much better to stop now. Surprise # 9
