following: Atkins
performance: gaining 2.0 lb a week

I am 56 years young and live in Portland, Oregon. I have been on the diet yo-yo for years. Just keep plugging along. I don't feel that I look too bad, that's probably the problem. I go along good, then when I lose a few, I stop and gain it all back. I am going to try harder in 2012. My family wants to go on a cruise next year, maybe this motivation will work. I am changing my goal to 199, maybe this will help me see the light at the end of the tunnel. We shall see.

I am having trouble adding items to my daily intake. When I click the Add Item button nothing happens. Any body out there to help me?

Same here in Portland. Although today when I got off work it was 58 degrees and feeling balmy compared to the past few days. Flooding everywhere, the Willamette is up and we have a little creek that runs through Portland call Johnson Creek, it has flooded lots of areas in SE Portland.
