Sorry to all you old timers, but I am new to fatsecret and new to the challenges!

Is there somewhere on the site I am supposed to record the water I drink - and hence the success rate of sticking to the challenge?

Or update my progress in any way?

Did really well yesterday - day 1 despite the fact that I did not start challenge until 12 noon - still managed 64oz! And 8:30am and already well on my way for today - boy have I been peeing a lot!!!!

Thanks in advance for your advice - and here's to a great challenge with great results for our weight loss!

No there isn't other then your personal eating records. I record tap and bottle water on there.

You shouldn't report a success till Jan 10th, if you complete a week of drinking water instead of soda then it's a success ... if not then You'll do better next week!!

Hope that makes sense.

Thanks HauntedWebby, but how do I report the 'Success' when I have completed the week?

I was confused too. Go to your home page (where you put in food) and where you "weigh in" there's something that says report your progress (on your weigh in page too) and it shows pass/fail and how many days until the end of the week before you have to report. I think that's it!
I'm Michelle. See my video diary of my weight loss at where I share weekly updates of how I'm progressing in my chosen challenges. 2011 is My Year of "WONDER" and this year's theme song is John Mayer's "Your Body is a Wonderland." My husband helped me create this treadmill desk and a goal weight project called "Project Atlantis" which includes a Bahamas vacation, a new wardrobe and a new kayak! 2011 is definitely going to be a year of WONDER!

The blind leading the blind here - I hope an expert will come on to give us advice!

The 'weigh & report' button I think we have to use for the challenge is:

go to challenge Home page (not your own home page) scroll down past Recent Challenge Updates, past Mini-Challenges, at the bottom of that section is the weigh & report button. I guess the reason that some have already reported is that their normal weigh-in day is not on a monday in line with the challenge???

Totally lost with all this, It should be so much easier to log on and record our progress. Im trying to be responsible, hold myself accountable for everyday choices of eating drinking and exercising. I was looking for an easy way to record it and keep it all together.
