When ever I try to enter a historical weight or change my start weight it gives me two error messages that the weight I am entering is before the current date and save not permitted. Has anyone else gotten this?

I've gotten that message and I don't quite understand how to fix it. I don't think you can enter any weight before your initial start weight, and if you try to change your starting weight like I did, your diet will reset and will show your current weight as your starting weight (which makes it look like you haven't lost anything).

Ahhh, okay well darn. I actually started my diet before I started using Fatsecret.com and I wanted it to reflect my real weight loss instead of looking like I gained. Thanks for your reply.

Same thing happened to me too. I wanted to go back to show my weight loss prior to fatsecret and it looks I gained now. Thats one thing this site has to fix. Other than that I cant live without it daily. Its like my life line nowWink

You can go back to a pre-FatSecret date. I followed the instructions below to go back to the date I actually started my diet which was before I joined here. I wanted to log my prior progress so my weight loss would be accurate. The following worked for me. I found this on the "Help" section on here.

"Can I backdate my diet start date and enter historical weight entries?"
Yes, you can enter your weight information up to 6 months from the time you become a FatSecret member. Go to your "My FatSecret" page and in the top right hand "my profile" box click on "my diet". Once there click "enter historical weight" and enter your historical weight information.

When you clicked the date you want, it turns blue but the square stays on "today". Go ahead and highlight the right date and enter your prior weight and it will be reflected on your log. At least it worked for me.

I need help finding my motivation again :(
You only fail when you stop trying. So take that first step NOW (not tomorrow, next week, or next month) and keep on going! Start with a first step that seems easy and take it from there.
