    Gutbusters, as your (co-)captain I've been doing a terrible job of modeling the daily check-in. Why? Because I've been doing a terrible job of tracking!

    Maybe I should try to spin this into a positive and say I've been doing a pretty good job of maintaining without tracking?

    Anyway, today I try again, and I've already logged breakfast and started a little pre-logging -- afternoon snack, some thoughts about dinner, etc.

    So, for all of you pre-loggers out there, what's for dinner tonight? What have you already got planned that will keep you on track for the day and be delicious?

    I hadn't thought about it yet, but I usually do. I am not very prepared today. I might get hubby to put some jacket spuds in the oven and have them with some baked beans (usually do a side a salad with them, but haven't got any in at the moment).

    Orr.....maybe a chicken stir fry. Have some frozen (pre cooked) chicken pieces and frozen sliced peppers, so wouldn't need to add much to that. Got a sauce in and some noodles...I think.....

    Above it the correct info. I usually don't take this much time to caught on.

    @matthewsfive I know, this weigh-in stuff can feel a little confusing at first because of how the registration works. Just to get us all on the same page:

    You posted on the New Member Registration page on Jan 28 that your starting weight is 259.2. It looks like you want a Saturday weigh-in. The first Saturday weigh-in for February will be this coming Saturday, February 9. Then Sunday will start WEek 2, and your Saturday Week 2 weigh-in will be February 16.

    Basically, posting your new member weigh-in on a Monday but choosing a Saturday as your weigh-in day, you bought yourself some extra time before your Week 1 weigh-in! Bonus days! That means more time to lose!

    And if this is still confusing, just keep an eye out for @BonnieHosk85 's daily reminders about whose weigh-in day it is, and you can check out the February spreadsheet linked on the TBL main page to see your starting weight, previous weights, etc.

    Good luck!

    @LesIckaBod
    Thanks for helping figure this out. So if I weighed in this past Sat Feb 2nd at 254.6 , should that be my start weight? I don't want to start with a number that's not fair to everyone else. The 259.2 weight number was from Jan 26th.

    @matthewsfive I think it's best to leave it as is. Any advantage you have bc of weigh in day will go away after week 1.

    sounds good, thanks

    Is that Vitality? If so i have the same insurance and i also get free Starbucks and half price Virgin Active membership!

    What's your weigh in day? Mine's Monday. Lost 3lb this week :-) so 196. We got this!

    Yep that's the one! You're in the UK then? I don't think I'll lose as much as 3lbs this week but will do my best, my weigh in day is Saturday.

    Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? Yes, walked the dog twice. 20 min this morning abd 45 min tonight.
    Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? Honestly No. According to my diary, yes. In reality no, because I didn't log everything. But I don't think I'll be a lot over.
    Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? No, I did a bit of old habit mindless eating. Nothing major, a bit of tuna, a banana chip, a teeny biscuit.

    Considering I used to shovel food in and not know what I ate, I think knowing what I had and realising halfway through is a win.
    Also admitting to it us a win too.

    Tracked: Yes
    Calories: a little high
    Exercise: Yes

    Success on tracking. Regarding calories, I was at 1440 probably - guesstimating some weights and measures. My MFP calorie limit is 1270.

    I want to keep up my tracking and resume calculating my tracked TDEE, which was super helpful when I began losing weight last summer. About 3 weeks of solid tracking is necessary for good data. After that, I"ll have a better idea of whether 1270 is right for my body composition and loss right now.

    Yes on all.
    Question:- what's for dinner:- DH is away tonight, so I get the night off since he doesn't cook! But, I've been using Skinny Taste website for ideas. I keep dishes ready made in the fridge for work lunches and sometimes a breakfast casserole I can quickly heat up in the morning. Soups in bulk are great at this time of the year in the US.

    We are having lasagne tonight. My husband and daughter will be having garlic bread too but I've intentionally not made enough for myself.
