You always start at 5.0 lbs to go
Update your weight as often as you like

I weigh in the afternoon, to match my diet club weigh in.

I hate to admit, wed is my free meal and somehow I have gained 5lbs- from one meal. We are in a terrble heat wave the high temp jumped from 80 to 98.
I think it has something to do with that. I couldn't take my temp today, my thermometer was confused because my room is 90.7 degrees. All I've eaten today is chicken.

Nawchem, it's so frustrating, isn't it! But you can't let it get to you. Stick with your plan, it's water weight, it will come off!! I don't usually check weather, so yesterday's heat wave was quite the shock! Looks like it will be a little cooler today, so hopefully relief is on the way.

I'm just south of you. Its supposed to be 100 today. I live 5 miles from the beach, we're just not used to dealing with bad weather.

I've had a NSV. I work in a clinical lab-we deal mostly with blood and its important to have protective gear on. I haven't been able to button the buttons on my lab coat and its the largest size. There was a gap of several inches. The last 2 weeks I've been able to get the top 2 buttons closed.

Great going, Nawchem! When I moved out here, my intention was to live minutes from the coast. And become a surfer, lol! But I haven't figured either out....yet? I'm heading over to the beach tomorrow morning though, early, to beat the holiday traffic.
