I'm looking forward to this. A healthy friendly challenge. Are we going to check in nightly or daily with our days or previous days intake?

Official stats Nov 1, 15 & 30

But lots of chatting mostly here (limited on MFP to protect privacy of wls profiles) to discuss the process, challenges, changes, triumphs, etc.

I expect it to be tons of fun!!!

I chose MFP platform because a lot of us are using it at the recommendation of our teams. You can log everything there even weight! But for this challenge we will focus on hydration and weight. We want to see how super hydration effects fat loss, energy and over health . And we like to have like to have lots fun here!

Added!

I'm the same. I have an app that I love that I use for my food, Water, weight loss, etc. But I downloaded the mfp again just for the challenge. I was going to switch, but I still like my other one

Only add Water and weight then, we will likely keep the chatting here and complete the tracking at the very end

We will all have the same analysis chart to look at in the end if we use MFP

That's what I was planning to do. I started yesterday inputting on both apps and boy that was frustrating. I told the hubby I was doing this challenge and what I was doing with both apps, then I said maybe I'll just track Water and weight because by the time I logged in both places I was so flustered I wanted to throw my phone. (Anger issues)

      Friday marked my first surgiversary, so I wrote 3,000 words about it on Medium: https://medium.com/@mistyfritz/life-after-having-my-intestines-rerouted-d7baf9c8c39f?source=friends_link&sk=e24f2259918ac091cdbbb8a8f24b1f63

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...
