following: ddogger's own diet
performance: losing 1.9 lb a week

I am a 58 year old male whose been fighting this weight thing my entire life. You would think by now I would be an expert and have mastered this dieting thing and have kept my weight off, but no. The one thing I have learned over the years is that you have to be persistent, you need to become a fanatic and never ever let up. So here I am again, this I hope will be the last time. I'm going to take it slow in making changes and see how it goes.

Look at ways to rev up your metabolism. Easiest thing first is make sure you are drinking at least 64 oz of cold water per day. Water intake is extremely important for weight lose.It seems like the more water you take in, the more water you will lose. It takes fluids to get rid of fluids. It not only revs up the metabolism but also makes you feel fuller.Initially when you start an exercise program you may be gaining muscle mass, which is a good thing. As far as weighing yourself, don't become too discouraged by what the scale says. Remember that when you weigh yourself it is only a snapshot of your weight on that particular day and at that particular time. What my doctor recommended to me, and what really works for me is weighing myself everyday and recording it every day. I then circle my lowest weight recorded in a particular week (7 day period).The next week again circle your lowest weight recorded. There should be at least 1 pound difference between you lowest weights recorded when comparing the two weeks. I have done this and have noticed that my weight could fluctuate as much as 3 lbs day to day, but always go back to the lowest weight recorded for the week.

Oneder-Land, here I come!!
Congratulations! Enjoy your accomplishment, not only for the 100 lbs lost, but also for the personal commitment and sacrifice it has taken to get there. It takes super human powers to be a successful weight controller.

Where did the Weight History "graph" go?
It appears on my Android phone from the home page under "Weight Tracker". Not sure if your problem is specific to the Apple app or not. Sounds like fuel for the Apple vs. Google war.Click on the "Contact" link at the bottom of the web site to send an email to them.
