Good luck. Seems you are on track.

BTW: thanks for the graph. The visual really helps for me and my own situation. I notice especially the fluctuations. I have these wild day-to-day swings in weight myself. It is good to see others have similar experience.

Hang in there.

Thanks, the fluctuations are sometimes huge. I always weigh in at the same time, right after my workout.
So I'm guessing it's a combo of measruement inaccuracy, amount of hydration, what I have in me, and what not...

Just Excel. I write my weight on a calendar, once a week or so I enter it into a spreadsheet. The attached picture is a jpeg of the spreadhseet, taken using SnagIt.
