dehydrated or hydrated, that is the question!

So I have noticed that I can't really tell when I need to drink more. Old saying is if your urine is dark, you need to drink more. Well, the more I drink, the darker it gets and the less I go. The less I drink the more I go, and the lighter it gets. I am so confused!

I could not be happier with them. Before my surgery my pants were very tight around my thighs, the hardest place for me to loose weight. Recently I noticed that they had started to fit and then a little bit baggy. I am glad I didn't go out for a bigger pair before surgery, and just suffered with them being tight.
