I still kept our TP tuesday chart.. i'll update it so we can use it here. It would be great if you can keep it updated for us.

All it is is a EXCEL spreadsheet. Let me know if you are familiar with that program cuz if you are .. it's soo easy and since we dont' have to many members just yet.. it will be even easier to maintain it current.

so, do you know how to use EXCEL?

yeah.. i found doing charts on Excel is soo much easier than doing something on programs like PSP.

Anyway, this is what i came up with for now. If you give me your email, i can send it over to you and you can be incharge of keeping it updated



Once you get the chart, all you have to do is add in the weight, then you highlight the entire chart, right click copy, then open up PAINT, and right click paste.. go to SAVE AS.. and save it as a .jpeg. Once it's saved, go to photobucket and upload the chart to your account.

* A trick i learned is that if you save it as the same name (in otherwords, if you overwrite the file and upload it in photobucket using the same filename.. the chart automatically gets updated in the JM forums *

The May playgroup board has a weight chart as well and I like some of their icons they are using to update. they just post up1 or down 1 stuff like that..

we could take on that format or we could post numbers what would you like to do?

would you want to put the weigh in number itself and the amount that was dropped or added since the week before?

that sounds good. or we could put a starting weight at the beggining and a goal weight at the end of the months. and update the goal at the start of every new chart.

on one of my old boards we would post our weights like this
highest weight/current weight/ goal weight and then we would just post U1 or D1 for what ever we gained or lost.

I like actually posting numbers b/c it keeps me accountable and I don't have to be embarrased b/c it's in cyberspace and posting my weight to a faceless friend is easier to take than actually FACE TO FACE with someone kwim?

hey, however you want to do it is fine. you have to keep it up so it's best for whatever is easier for you. i just didn't understand at first, but now i do and i like that. yeah, on ww boards it goes like that:
highest weight or starting weight/current weight/goal weight
