    November 25: 176.2. I'm happy that I was up .08 pounds on the very first day for several reasons: It's important to see that weight fluctuates on a daily basis, so we're after trends not one day's change. Also, an "up" day on the scale does not derail us; anybody who reaches their goal has numerous "up" days along the way. All is well.

    Today's gain makes as little sense as the previous loss. I know these fluctuations are water rather than fat, so not stressing (in theory, at least).

    I just found this challenge. I’m starting 2 days late on November 26.

    Starting weight: 184.0
    Ending weight: TBD

    November 28: 185.6
    November 29: 183.6
    November 30: 182.4 Thanksgiving Dinner Feast tonight with family. I expect a gain on the scale tomorrow.
    December 01: 187.4 I honestly ate child sized portions but I guess it adds up. My best figure is under 2300 but I did quick calories on MFP at 2350. I burned almost 2600 so I’m not sure I understand the gain when I know there was less calories in than out, but that’s carbs for ya! Okay so I am supposed to lose 5 pounds by Christmas and I gain 5 pounds overnight just by eating at maintenance! So I have my work cut out for me but I’m not a quitter so here goes nothing!
    December 02: (Goal for 1st week: 183.0) Actual weight: 183.2 Yay! TMI potty helped tremendously as it had been a few days. So I have about made goal afterall and am pleased as punch! Now, to keep up the momentum!

    Food was on point! Today was a really good day for me. Actually the evening I guess: I made sure I can go to bed looking ‘back’ on the day the way I imagine a FIT person might: I did run/walk intervals, stretched the hammies n quads to ( hopefully) increase my stride length, and even threw down 30 burpees after dinner. Ten stair flights and over 15k steps total. Pray I can do it all again tomorrow.🤞

    Thanks for all your inspiration folks- I can’t comment on all your posts but I AM reading them and it is helping me feel I can do it too. 🤗

    Can anyone tell me how to edit the above post for tomorrow?
    I have edited this one but cannot for the above. How is everyone logging the next day's weigh-in if you can't edit a post?

    Because of weird work schedules I wake up at different times every day... so I can't weigh the same time every day. I feel sure that if I were getting up later today, I'd have dropped again. Alas... maybe tomorrow? If I'm good today!
