I was trying to update my weight goal and my problem is that it tells me that my weight goal is larger than my current weight. I am 88 pounds and I want to gain weight until I reach 100 pounds. Am I the only one wanting to gain weight?
Welcome to FitDay. If you read through the posts, you will see this question being asked again and again. The FitDay software does not now, and probably will not in the near future support a weight gain goal. Sorry.

The best exercises for weight loss are Fork Putdowns and Table Pushaways.
I find it odd that that people in control of this site/software are not giving the people what they want and implementing a very trivial change when clearly there is a demand for it from more than 1 or 2 people. I guess the weight goal function is pretty much useless to a bunch of folks. Either way the diet log is the most important part anyhow.
Weight loss is a relatively simple calculation, because for the most part it means losing fat; weight gain is far more complex, as most people are not looking to put fat on, but muscle, and this calculation is much more complex and involves activities on a whole different level. In addition, many of those wanting to gain weight are dangerously underweight to begin with, and any weight gain should be under a doctor's care, not a website's. Essentially this is the reason FD does not and will not (at least for the foreseeable future) offer help for those who wish to gain weight.
Ok, I was thinking along the lines of just changing the part of the code that checks the math and rejects a larger weight. Either way though, Fitday is a great nutrition log and has helped me with my goals for years now
