Hi everyone. I hope I can help with some of your questions.
We do have a weigh in tread under the general discussion section. You can keep track of your weight there. We'll probably start a thread for each month that you can track changes in your weight but that would likely be as of March 1 so everyone who just started can get used to the site and we can start a new month.
As far as working the night shift goes, I feel your pain. I worked until 2am for many years and it is a big challenge. You have to decide when your day begins. If you get up at 1pm then you should consider that the start of your "morning". 10pm may be your dinner time. General rule of thumb is that you should try not to eat within 2 hours of going to bed. Try reading "What is normal eating" www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutrition_art
Everyone should be eating at least 3 meals a day plus snacks. The time you eat depends on your own schedule. If you're waking up at 7am then that is the start of your day and you should have breakfast in the morning. If you're not getting up until 3pm then your "morning" starts later in the day. Adjust your diet and exercise plan according to your needs.
I hope I've helped answer some of your questions. Keep your questions coming.
Good luck. Take care of you & keep moving!
