I need to start drinking half my body weight I'm ounces in water a day from what I have been told which is 60-70 ounces. The problem is that I'm not a huge fan of water. I am lucky if I can force myself to drink a bottle a day. Would it be okay/healthy and just as good to drink crystal light with my water to change the favor but still lose weight.

Nasty stuff. CL has aspartame, which is linked to cancer risks, neurological disorders, and more. Why not just add a spritz of fruit juice to your water instead? I enjoy cranberry juice spritzer with a wedge of lemon.

That's what I use to do when I hated drinking plain water

too much crap in CL.  i would slice up some lemons,  oranges, limes and throw in some cranberries into a huge pitcher of water and let sit overnight.  voila!  flavoured water just like the spas do it :)

My favorite is Fruit Punch. I also like the Great Value version of it in the Cherry flavor. The tea is good too. But I don't like ANY of the lemonade flavors.

 Mio, water flavoring is also a good alternative too.

I've tried just adding fruit to my water and it never tastes right to me. I have found that if I drink my water from a straw, I tend to drink a lot more.

Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.

I would suggest a more natural flavoring for your water.
