    *I've been stuck at 220 for a month. Then again, I was stuck at 230 for about the same amount of time. I intend to prevail.

    Same thing happens to me every 10 lbs.

    @Dorgle690

    I presume your scale uses CR2032 button cell batteries. They are pretty common, and you should be able to find them in most variety stores and probably hardware stores. You can also buy them online and have them shipped; they aren't very expensive. I just got a four-pack since I am about to install the only one I have left in my battery drawer.

    When you wrote you were extra hungry from burning off all the energy, do you eat back your exercise calories? Do you have a way to track some of all that busy energy? I was using the pedometer on my phone before I bought a fitness tracker watch. It's a fount of data.

    Thank you for the battery info, it helps a lot! :smiley:

    I usually try not to eat back my exercise calories, but if I'm feeling hungry after eating all of my normal meals or if there's a big window of time between meals then I will have a snack or a small meal. I try to make sure I eat healthier foods when I do eat back my exercise calories just so I don't feel like I cancelled out my progress with junk food. But if I don't feel very hungry then I won't eat back my exercise calories.

    I have a Fitbit that's connected to MFP. I know that fitness trackers aren't perfectly accurate when tracking calories burned so that's part of why I like to leave most of my exercise calories alone. I also used to use my phone but found that I didn't keep it with me enough for it to track my steps so I gladly upgraded to a Fitbit. :blush:
