cathygeha , that's great! I never thought of excel - it's so easy to see at a glance. You and your sister have made a good team
I have NO idea how to set up an excel spreadsheet but did download one at some point in the past and update it periodically. That original one is long gone but have been tracking since May...at least
My sister was down last night as she is not "losing" - so - I reminded her that her goal weight was 150 when she started in March of last year and had she looked to see how long she had maintained that weight or lower...she went to look then sent me an attachment with her weights and she has maintained since September so now SHE feels a LOT better.
It is all in the perspective/visual. Looking at it day by day it can seem like we are treading water or making no progress but taking a step back to see the bigger picture...it can be illuminating and uplifting and give us that little bit of spark/incentive/whatever to stay on track!
So, thank you doordie50, for giving me the chance to see the journey from a new perspective.
DebDoesWW,doordie50, I don't know if you have seen this but Lisa Wood did a tutorial on YouTube for people who don't like to see the red where you use more than your dailies. Go into your settings on ITB and there is a place where you can now select manually redeem. It lets you either manually redeem weeklies or activity points. They still come out but you don't see the red line. Evidently some people didn't like seeing the red line.
cathygeha I want to tag you also but I don't think on blue you have used weeklies?
