    Weigh-in
    Smlisley
    Monday March 6
    PW =231
    CW=231.6

    To be honest, I'm surprised it's not higher. I just started my TOM and I'm usually 2-3lbs up for the week lol.

    Looking forward to being under 230 next weigh-in.

    @Smlisley I love roller skating, but haven't been in years. There's nowhere near me to go. :( And some Ikea furniture requires 3 men and a boy to assemble so yes, I'd probably count it. LOL

    Sunday(Wk2; Day 1)
    Steps: 12226
    Total Calories: 2542
    Net Calories: 1864
    MUAC: Yes / No / Yes; I was waaayyy over calories; has anyone else noticed how bad Mfp’s lag is lately? It seems worse then usual
    As of Day 1: ❌🔘🔘🔘🔘🔘🔘

    Discovered a new challenge app for my Apple Watch and began that yesterday with my bestie! I’m also still wearing my Fitbit Inspire2 on my other wrist (thankfully, I work from home so I don’t look odd to THAT many people!😁) Had a big workout day! Increased my weight to 45lbs instead of 35 on the 30min circuit at PF, kept on my treadmill longer then usual. Needless to say, I slept better then I have in a very very long time!

    @DaffyGirl88

    Are we suppose to log this daily? What do the metrics mean? I’m a newbie and wasn’t aware of this. I thought it was only weighin days we post. Thanks for clarifying in advance!💫

    @BlissfulK Posting daily is optional and part of the Mini Ultimate Accountability Challenge (see original post by @Krysless2 on page 3, copied below). The metrics are as follows: Track: did you track everything you ate today? Under: were you under your MFP calorie goal, including any calories earned from exercise? Exercise: did you get at least 20 minutes of exercise today? Let me know if you still have questions after reading the below. Also - it is not too late to join us!!! :)

    ****************************************************************************************************

    We are going to be running a daily post challenge or MUAC(Mini Ultimate Accountability Challenge) Based on another MFP Challenge called the UAC

    Participation in this challenge is optional but highly encouraged for the following reasons:
    - Helps to keep your goals in focus daily
    - Motivating to see others working on the same things and having the same struggles too. It's defintely a reminder that we're not alone and we are a team
    - Many of us who participate and have successfully lost weight, would all agree that the daily posting MUAC really is the key!

    The way it works: 
    #1. Track EVERYTHING you eat that has calories.
    #2. Stay inside your allocated daily budget. (you set your own budget)
    #3. Try to do at least 20 minutes of activity a day (anything: walk, run, cycle, swim, gardening, housework, yoga, gym, etc.. As long as it gets you active and off the couch)
    #4. Check in daily (tracking yes/no, calories yes/no, exercise yes/no).

    ****End of the week. those who have managed to keep to plan for 6 out of 7 days are recognized in the thread as being part of the weekly "Winners Circle". This introduction was delayed, so I’ll start tracking for Week 2, which begins Sunday, March 6th
