    Good Morning🌅
    Hope everyone is having a good(good enough)weekend.
    A couple of questions:
    I'm a 2 week newbie, so bare with me,
    1)how do I comment on someone else's post? Do u have to have a Premium Membership?
    2)Dumb question, but Ruby are we to weigh in on Sunday?
    I'm scared to weigh myself!!!!
    Still having a hard time visualizing and believing I will be able to lose the weight even though I spent time last night going through all the success stories and seeing pictures of people that have lost substantial amount of weight!!
    Have a great day.

    When you press the word "quote" you will see the other person's post in the yellow box. Then place your curser after their post and the word {quote} and type away.
    Weigh in any day you wish. This is more of an informal "challenge". It helps everyone to post anytime you wish.

    This week I walked 37 miles total. Not too bad. I am part of that step challenge (it's an app called StepBet). For three weeks straight I have walked over 9,200 steps which is a goal they set for me based on past history. I must say my clothes are a tiny bit looser overall.

    That is awesome! 👍

    What I am doing differently this time #2 -

    When using MyFitnessPal I remember the “human error” factor. Error creeps in via what we input (was that really a flat teaspoon or a heaping one?) and what is in the system when we choose that food item (is the nutritional information correct?) or exercise (Did you really burn that amount of calories?).

    The way I counter this is two ways.

    -First, I try to stay within the last 200 calories of my Calorie limit (If my Calorie limit was 1900, I would try to eat between 1700 and 1900 calories and limit how much over 1900 I went. I would never go below 1700).

    Make sure you get the nutrients you need. I sometimes change what I eat for dinner if I find I have gaps in my nutritional needs (not enough protein?) I also take vitamins when I haven’t gotten enough of it in my diet (not enough Vitamin C?), and I also make sure to take it with food that helps my body absorb it better (Vitamin D with Milk) and avoiding the reverse (do not take iron with Milk).

    -Second, I don’t add the calories burned with exercise to my allowed daily calories.
