I weighted in last nite for the first time after eating dinner and drinking two glasses of water but when i weighted in this morning there was a two lbs difference. is it cheating to change my weight to my morning weight which I think is more accurate than my after dinner weight?

I corrected mine to reflect an actual higher starting weight because I was rounding down instead of up at first. But I don't think it really is "cheating". Can'tyou just weigh in again? I think it will all work out anyway. Congrats. I always try to go by the morning weight.

I'd say not cheating at all, I only ever record morning weights. Weight fluctuates through out the day (and by a reasonable amount, it can certainly go up to 2lbs), and my understanding of the best way to weigh is: in the morning, after bathroom break, before breakfast (minimal or no clothing).

Adding foods
I find sometimes that if I can't find a food in the FatSecret database, I do an internet search and it comes up there under FatSecret. I don't understand why that happens but it works.
