Before I found Fat I had lost 17 lbs. I want to add the weight loss to my weight history so I can see it on my weight loss history chart. But when I go to, Change Your Weight History page and add my starting weight a warning box comes up and says; The date you have chosen is on or before your most recent weight entry.
I select the correct date on the calender which is about a month before I first weighed in on this web site but it still will not allow me to enter my starting weight. I would like to see my total since my Oct. 25th, 2012 not Nov. 12th, 2012 because I love seeing my progress on the weight loss chart. Is there any way to enter my starting weight?
Please help with this frustrating subject.

i don't think you can enter a weight from before you setup your account.
try to do it as a "enter historical weight" under my diet from the home page.
maybe you could put that as your starting weight from Nov 12...though the time won't be accurate it will show your total lost from then & when you weigh in now.

My FS / toolbox (on right of screen) diet / enter historical weight. Use arrows to move Cal and click on date

I'm not losing WEIGHT. I'm converting FAT to MUSCLE to be healthier.

None of the ideas I can find in this community actually work. The calendar won't let me click on a day in the past and enter a weight there. I can't even just choose my start day because it simply won't select the day. I have tried Firefox and Explorer. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to get the website to actually select a date in the calendar?

I'm very frustrated with this site myself. I gave up trying to change my start date. I'm still trying to change the diet plan I'm following.

i just use the phone app of fatsecret and scan in barcodes as l eat food, or maybe jot down on paper what you have eaten during the day and add it in later when you get a quiet time.
