You are at 22lbs. less than I was when I started, and I now weigh less than your goal weight, I also have dyslexia. Typically in a given day I drink about 96 oz of water, and I do this by filling a 32oz jug at least 3 times/day. If I have an evening workout I might actually drink 4 jugfuls. The baseline I've always gone by is 64 oz, (which is 8 cups of water) + another cup for every 10lbs you want to lose. So for you this would be 8 cups + 6 cups = 14 cups, so a little less than a gallon, although the extra 2 cups aren't going to hurt you any. Congrats on your loss so far, upping your water will help you lose even more.
