    So I already messed this up. Blonde moment. I thought the SW was the weight I was at when I started MyFitnessPal, not this challenge.

    Lovebug,

    No you did not mess up - it is okay to put your initial MFP weight as start. Just put your week1 weight in next to W1, then your week 2 weight next to W2, etc. Unfortunately we can't edit the original post to add the new weigh-ins. Next week you need to find this week's 8/12 post [do that by (1) hitting the star at the upper right of the community page - you will then see a list of your bookmarked community strings - choose this challenge (you bookmark a string by, from inside of it clicking on the star at the upper right, making it gold) (2) once you are at this challenge, click "search" at upper left, touch the down arrow to open up the menu, then write your username in the "author" box] - this will take you to your latest post (3) copy your whole list of weeks from that page, then paste it into the "reply" box, add your new weight next to W2, then submit. You will have to do this cut and paste procedure every week to update your list of weights and progress.

    *on second thought, I think you can safely skip step 1 above and go straight to step 2 - find your most recent post by going to any community string, & searching by your username through all of your recent posts. Obviously, I am still trying to figure this out myself. Maybe more experienced posters can verify/correct for us what the best procedure is for adding our latest weights each week?

    Hope this is more helpful than confusing!

    Good luck with the challenge!

    Hi
    I'm not sure how I should be doing this. I found my original entry but then the next day I updated with my start weight. Can't find that entry. I know I am supposed to copy a template and keep adding to it but thats where I am being a bit thick. How or where do I go to add my next bit to the list. Do I just reply to someone who posted last with my updated template or is there another way I should be doing it. As it is I just go to the last entry and 'post reply'

    What I do, and I often use my phone, is I have the template saved in my clipboard on my phone. I use Google keypad on my Samsung, it's a little clipboard icon on the top of the keypad. I guess from a PC, have the template in a word doc or something similar, continue to add to it and cut and paste. 🤷

    Thanks Juliebigoolee, I got the cut and paste bit sorted now, I will checkout your suggestions for where to store the template, but still not sure where I should pitch in at. For example, I couldn't see a reply point to thank you, so just came to the bottom of the page for post reply. Thats the bit Im stuck at now, where do I post up my updated template? Do I just go to last entry and tab post reply or is there some tab that I am not seeing

    Have you been doing any weight training? I have found this to be much easier when I'm doing weight training in between cardio days.

    If I'm understanding what you are confused with, you post at the end of the last entry, there will be a post box to put your updated template in. The group feed is organized chronologically so it's in order of who posted last. In order to see/access what you posted last you have to click though the pages to find it but new postings will always happen on the last page. Hope it helps and that's what you are asking.

    "In order to see/access what you posted last you have to click though the pages to find it "....

    Also helpful for finding what you posted last: Click "search"at the top left of the last (most recent) page of postings in this challenge; click the arrow at right to open up the menu; enter your username next to "author"; click search at bottom left. Should take you to your last post.
