Welcome Mondaygirl! Look at you go!

Well, I had a little whoosh....don't think it was water weight so I hope it sticks!

I hear you Ms.A. The "ups" on the scale can bring one down but I do my best to be accountable. Though I weigh daily, I average my weekly totals and I call that my "official" weight. I bounce a lot ( and stall) so some weeks I only lose a few ounces....but I like seeing the downward trend.

Onward and downward!

I too weigh every day, with few misses, and average for the week. Makes the ups and downs bearable. My numbers are posted on my journal each day. I dont see how it affects someone else winning. Whoever zeros out first wins. Simple.

You are right Ms A. whoever zeros out first wins.
I think for me, seeing others go up and down lets me be ok with the bouncing that happens, I don't feel all alone. I like to encourage those that go past the 5 lbs mark because I have been there, I also find by posting my bouncing I am being more realistic about how the process of weight loss happens for me.
As mentioned before, one can update when they want. It is an individual decision whether one does daily with their daily weight or not.

I know this woosh is going to end any moment now, but it's incredibly motivating. For the longest time I was so scared I would never be able to get below 200 again, and then it just happened without hunger, without sacrificing, without effort. I'm so thankful to see the numbers get farther away from the 200 every day.
