So I definitely retain water. I try and drink a ton - like over the recommended 64 ounces a day. Should I drink more water or cut back? Recommendations for water retention issue?

Eat foods that will help with easing water retention. I know cucumbers and leeks are two natural diuretics Be sure to drink water that keeps your electrolytes in balance, (Smart water, Core, etc.) You can also purchase minerals or electrolytes that you can add to your water. Drinking too much water can be unhealthy when you flush out all of the salts and minerals in your system. Trust me, it can be bad also. I know someone who has done that and was mimicking symptoms of a stroke, and has landed up in the hospital as a result. Google, drinking too much water. There is a medical term for it. I hope this helps. Good luck with your weight loss goals.

Wish me luck
Mine has gone down after a substantial weight loss. Perhaps yours is up temporarily. Are your alcohol/sodium/caffeine intake levels up at all?

Are smaller goals beter?
I have a large goal that I split up into smaller goals. A prize set for certain milestones. My next one is at 150. Not sure of my prize yet. 😉
