I wanna drink! AND during a meal!

Maybe I just drink more liquid with my meals than others.  I don't know.  But it is just bizarre and wrong to not be able to take a sip of something while I'm eating.  I am sitting here now, having my pseudo-lunch thing, and I have to physically restrain myself from picking up the water bottle beside me and taking a swig after every few bites.  It's usually safer for me to just not have a drink on the table at all while I am eating.  I understand the reasoning behind this rule, but I don't have to like it.  I would challenge anyone to try this at their next meal.  Every time you reach for your glass of water/pop/tea/whatever, stop and tell yourself NO.  Then when you are finished eating, set a timer and don't let yourself have a drink for another 30 minutes.  Maybe it's just me, but this type of thing seems cruel and unusual punishment when I am supposed to drink 64 ounces of liquid a day and then can't have it when I want it most!

But it's a fairly good day protein-wise for me because I just finished 35 grams, half my requirement for the day, and I've still got about 8 hours to fit in the rest.  Yesterday I felt bad all day and just couldn't force the food or drink down.  As long as I can keep those bad days to a minimum, everything will be okay.  Now if I can just remember all the vitamins...
