I am still learning things about this forum. How do you repeat what you wrote in another message and add more information to it, eg. listing calories, exercise, water etc.?

episode2011 06-13-2013 07:26 PM

Libby, I use one of two methods, depending on my mood:

1) Quote my own post (using the "quote" feature at the bottom of each post) and edit/update it, or

2) Copy the bit I want to update, paste it into a new Reply and update it.

The advantage of Method 1 is I don't have to re-enter all the formatting. The disadvantage is I have to get rid of all the parts I don't want to repeat. That includes the [ quote] [ /quote] tags plus any additional, unnecessary chitchat. Sometimes, particularly with my posts, that's a lot of editing (you may not have noticed, but some of my posts are... long :p).

The advantage of Method 2 is it's more straight-forward. Copy and Paste. The disadvantage is that I have to reformat everything.

Hope that helps.

Have I really not posted since Monday? Where has this week gone? I read the posts yesterday morning, but never got around to posting.

Libby - I hope everything gets taken care of quickly for you in the hospital.

Ian - I hope your GF is okay...pregnancy is a pretty easy diagnosis. Don't they have home test kits there? Your "random acts of Korean" kept me smiling all day yesterday whenever it came to mind (whenever I thought "I really need to log into FitDay and post).

epixi - I'm glad you're seeing good body changes. Keep those in mind when your weight loss slows. And I'm sure there have been a lot of positive internal changes over the last couple of months too.
I still have to total yesterday's calories...went out to dinner with daughter and a DIL. I had a portobello sandwich with yellow and red peppers and cheese. I didn't eat the top of the roll (which was 2/3 of the bread). But then came the onion rings...

1. Avg 1400 calories or less for the week - 1329, 1287
2. Avoid sugar and refined flour foods N, Y, N
3. Avg 45 min extra movement a day 40, 75, 15
