    @Tracie_Lord, I do have a Fitbit, I have just taken it off while I am having my foot issues. I know full well I am sitting on my butt right now, and I didn't need a gadget reminding me of that!! Mine is a three year old Charge HR. I would like to upgrade when I decide to get back into moving. There was a group from here doing Fitbit Challenges. @cmhubbard92, is that still happening? Maybe Tracie, or anyone else with a Fitbit would like to join?

    If there is a fitbit challenge group, I would love to join! I'm at //www.fitbit.com/user/22WC9G
    under Megan M.

    @susanpiper57, I do not know how to add people to Fitbit with what you have given me above. I can add with an email address; that's how I added @Kwinnero and @Tracie_Lord. Would you mind posting your email? If not, maybe you can add me. I think my email for Fitbit is lisasebok123@gmail.com. If that's not it, I will give you my other one.[/quote]

    Sure, my email is meganmccarty50@gmail.com :)

    I added the http: to her link and went to the mobile site and clicked add. Don't know if my request went through, though!

    @cmhubbard92, yeah, I still don't know how to do that. I can't seem to access my dashboard on the website anymore.

    That's odd! Mine works(when I actually use the website), but I prefer the app.

    Yeah, the website doesn't work for challenges. You can't see that you are in one!

    Oh, I know that part! That is the only downfall to the website. I think that seeing the challenges on the desktop site would be a great update! I occasionally reference it to see lifetime/best steps/miles(which I wish showed on the app, too!). And in this case, I use it for adding new friends.

    @cmhubbard92, I use the app for adding friends, because it is easy to add friends of friends. I went to Mike's profile since he had all the Big Butts to date and I added a couple from there. Now I am just waiting for Melanie M. to accept my request and for susanpiper57 to either accept yours, (and I will add from there) or to tell me her email address, or to add me.

    I accepted! Sorry about all the posts, I was reading up.

    5/3/19 Mini Challenge
    Tracked: Yes
    Under: Yes
    Exercise: 40 minutes Elliptical

    5/4/19 Mini Challenge
    Tracked: Yes
    Under: Not likely (buffet and drinks) but even though I'm not going to end up under for the day, I am way under my deficit for the week which is awesome.
    Exercise: ~2hours walking

    I will try to get back to some of the posts I've been mentioned in, but I am exhausted. We have about an hour back to my boyfriend's parents house, and I'm likely passing out after we get back

    @cmhubbard92, a lot of people on MFP use a weekly calorie goal instead of a daily calorie goal, so I can appreciate what you said about your deficit for the week. It may not work for the Mini Challenge, but it still gets you to your weight loss goal. As the saying goes, "there's more than one way...."

    Definitely! I aim to be under daily, but sometimes life gets in the way! I always try to get right back on track if I slip, but try to remind myself that one day will not undo months of progress!

    Weigh in day. 168.8
    I was weighing in at 167.something most of this week so annoyed with this mornings weigh in.
    I’m so ready to get into the 150s now!

    @lozenger1984, I entered your weight in the spreadsheet and I have you losing 0.9 pounds! Well done!! I thought you had gained by the way you were talking. You were just saying that you thought you would have lost more!

    I think I’m just impatient!

    @enyagoboom, you should be super happy about that, it's a five point four pound loss!! Great start to the May Challenge. TBBT is very glad you came back!!

    Thanks! Sorry about not checking in - the weekend was very difficult with the trip to NY and cleaning out the attic/basement/garage of our house there. The upside is that I definitely got my exercise in (why did we buy a house with so many stairs?) but the downside is tracking was too difficult and my watch died. I made decent choices with two big exceptions, so I think by Thursday if I can maintain what I lost last week (woot!) I will be very happy.

    I'm back on track today though - tracking everything and I'm planning on yoga and W1,D1 of the zombies, run C25K.

    I hope everyone had a great, health-filled weekend! Let's kick butt this week :smiley:

    @cossmoss15, whatever it takes to motivate ourselves! The day may have been unsuccessful overall, but your bike ride was a success!

    @enyagoboom, sometimes it is just too difficult to track. That's when we use what we have learned to make the best food choices and portion decisions and to be as active as we can. If you did those things (and it sounds like you did), then you'll be fine!!
