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).

Do what you did for the 11 pound loss. I'm guessing that not only did you lose pounds, you also felt better, achieved a better sense of well-being. Embrace that. The pounds will take care of thems ...
