Hi All,

This past week has been my first, using this app. I lost 0.5 kg this past week, but when I try and record it, the journal rounds up and shows as zero loss. I know it's only half a kilo but I find this discouraging. Sad

I have noticed others who were able to load partial kilo loss. How do I do this?
Any help is appreciated.

I wish I had helpful advise for the partial kilo - But I just want to say, "GOOD WORK" on losing it even if the number is not on the screen!

I would like to help but I use Lbs. My FS program accepts .5 (ie 200.5).
I am sure you have tried this but how about trying .5 then trying 1/2. That might work. And I am sure you have your FS program set to metric. And I assume that you enter your new weight at the weigh in page using the new weight, not the weight loss.
These are dumb suggestions, but sometimes they get overlooked. Other than playing around with the various pages, perhaps your next step is to contact the FS coding Gurus at the help page.
AS has been said, Gratz on your loss, and good luck.

I have contacted them several times on various problems over the years I have used this site, and they have NEVER gotten back to me. So good luck. And congratulations!

Goal!

I try to think of exercise like doing the dishes or laundry; I might not necessarily look forward to doing it, but it is necessary.
