performance: gaining 2.3 lb a week

As a young father I put all my attention into my kids and family responsibilities, and my own physical health suffered as a result. By the time I was in my 30s I was significantly overweight and out of shape.

Then my kids grew up and moved out, and I saw someone using a cool phone app to scan a barcode and record what they ate. Being a pretty nerdy person, I thought that was cool! So, I got the app and started to track my calories. Within a few months I had straightened out my bad eating habits and started to lose weight. (Thanks, FatSecret. I owe you my health!)

The last 10 pounds were tough, so I started running and doing some mild weightlifting. It was awesome to finally reach the appropriate weight for my height! Now I'm just struggling to keep the holiday pounds to a minimum. Sometimes I think humans were meant to bulk up and hibernate at this time of year!

Looks like they fixed whatever the problem was. This morning I opened the app, and it logged in, smooth as silk.

I hope you are right, but it has been going on for more than 24 hours at this point.

Search under "FatSecret" and you should find it just fine. I just found it on mine.

Jul 18 Mobile App issue
I'm on an Android phone, and I'm having trouble, too. Ever since yesterday (July 18 ). I even tried re-intalling the app, and it STILL won't work. I've been using their smartphone app for a couple of years, so I know it isn't something on my end.

Yeah, that "Couldn't save your entry" thing just started for me with the most recent update. My guess in that some programmer forgot to close the loop on some handshake somewhere. For a free app, I guess you can't be too picky, but it sure is annoying!
