Suemi, great job so far! Don't let the scale fluctuations get to you, just stick to your eating plan. (This is something I tell myself every day. And of course it's far easier to do on days the scale is down.) I've only just now met my goal from 5 pound challenge #303. I was 158.2 on August 9. My biggest day-to-day gain was 1.8 pounds; my biggest day-to-day loss was 1 pound.

Boopchick, thanks for starting the new challenge!

Nope. I know my scale goes up and down all the time with water retention due to diabetic meds. Doing good staying on the straight and narrow SO FAR.

Wow, hoping that huge jump on the scale is front water retention!! I didn't cheat a bit and even got exercise mowing the lawn yesterday!! LOL I was shocked this morning. A few tenths here and there overnight is no biggie but a 2+ lb jump. Yikes. oh well......hopefully it will disappear as fast as it came. I stuffed a squash with sausage last night and it did taste a little salty. So here's hoping........
