Don't worry about the ticker. Lots of folk have had problem with it. Use the Forum search box to find what others think about the ticker.
The rest of the program does work. So set your RDI and keep daily track of your calories (if you are on a calorie counting diet) and hang in for a great ride to lose weight.
The Perfect Speed
"any number is a limit, and perfection doesn't have limits.
Perfect speed, my son, is being there.”
