    Hoping to reach my final goal weight by the end of this year and start to figure out maintenance. I lost just over 6 pounds in the summer challenge so the weight is coming off super slow these days, but I am ok with that. My weigh-in days are on Tuesdays. Good luck everyone!

    CHALLENGE STARTING WEIGHT:159.2

    Sept.2: 158.8 (suddenly gained 1.5lbs. That time of the month approaches, me thinks)
    Sept. 9: 158.1 (yep - I was right. Period should be done in another day or two - then I should be able to get a true estimate)
    Sept.16: 158.9 (all over the map this week again - averaging 158.1. Lost an inch off my waist and hips though!)

    I'm not a female, so pardon me for thinking I have a clue. There is a weight trend graphing website that might help with monthly fluctuations. It's a little klunky to use, but you might give it a try especially if you already have data from the past month. It's http://www.weightgrapher.com/ It is set up to work with a Fitbit scale. I don't have one of those, so I have to go to the Fitbit website and measure my weight manually.

    Here's what's kind of neat about weightgrapher. It has an option to show your current trend AND what your weight was 28 days ago. Looks like this as it defaults to one month:

    It gets a little crowded as you zoom out to three, six, or 12 months, but it is still worthwhile.

    Good luck!


    @mtaratoot
    Ok, that second graph is fascinating! I’ve wondered what my monthly & yearly patterns are (and will be.)

    Thanks! And congratulations on your maintenance- You’ve been a real inspiration to me (and I’m sure..,many others!)

    Thank you for the very kind words @MadisonMolly2017.

    And I should also correct something I wrote in that post. You don't have to manually enter data on the Fitbit app for the WeightGrapher app. I was thinking of the other one I use -- Trendweight. I like the graphics on the Trendweight app, but I also like the 28-day look back feature of WeightGrapher. You enter your weight directly into WeightGrapher. If you make a mistake, you can go back and fix it, and if you want to add older data, it's really easy. If you need to fix an error for Trendweight, you have to go to the Fitbit site and do it there. It's not that hard. Sorry for the confusion, and best hopes for a successful journey for everyone!
