performance: gaining 0.8 lb a week

My name is John; I am 60 years old, husband, father of three, grandfather of five. I have probably lost the equivalent of my body weight over the years (and, of course, gained it all back). I can lose weight, but have historically been horrible at maintenance once I meet my goal weight. I first tried Atkins about 15 years ago; 10 years ago it was LA Weight Loss. I started my current weight loss effort using Weight Watchers in January of 2013, but switched over to calorie counting, as I found it easier (and more in line with the tools on this website). Using this website and increasing my activity has allowed me to lose over 60 lbs. I have been maintaining for just over two years as of 8/17/15. I don't ever say I am "dieting"; instead, I am just trying to live a healthy lifestyle. I indulge occasionally (sometimes in a big way), but get right back with the program.

how to manually add nutrional information for a food
Yes - go into the program as if you were inputting food that you had eaten. Type in "Protein Powder" - You will see "+ Add Food" below the search table. Click on that, and it will take you to where you can manually enter the nutrition information.

How to change the goal
Hi Desi - have you tried going to "My FatSecret" "My Settings" (right hand menu) - there is an option to measure in kg or lbs. If you change that setting to lbs. I believe it will let you reset your weight goal in pounds.

An unexpected error has occurred
Sonny - I'm having the same problem - every time I enter a weight into the log I get the "unexpected error" message. I've gotten to the point I just ignore it, because the new weight I put in is always there when I go back to the site.
