Hi all. I can't seem to find the thread that had the link to the moving average calculator for weight loss & for maintenance, so I'll ask my question here. I started tracking on that spreadsheet a little over 2 weeks ago and am going to adjust my ticker to reflect this from now on. (the gym I used for 3+ years had a good scale and I weighed weekly there & counted it as my "official" weight. It was generally a couple pounds heavier than my bathroom digital scale reads in the morning. Now that the gym closed, I'm going to have to rely on the bathroom scale.) so, here is my question ... On the chart, the moving average doesn't show until day 15, and then has numbers that column for each day for the coming 2 weeks. Which number do I use? The one for today ( which showed up 14 days ago) or the most recent number in that column (which showed up after I posted today's weight)? The new one is lower than the old, since I have been trending downward ever so slowly. I like this idea because it takes out the daily fluctuations ... But want to be accurate in what I post, too!
