Glad you found a way to make it work!

Jen - I get the blank box as well but with that funny drop down menu but I think I've figured out what it is. Sometimes when you put a figure in the boxes the computer shows previous numbers that have been put in. The numbers I described could be from my fruit/veggies for the day and my fitness minutes and whatever. I wasn't expecting that in a new goal where I hadn't had any input before. Tonight I went ahead and ignored the drop down and just keyed in my number of meals cooked at home and it accepted it. These things often have an easy answer and I'm glad it was figured out - I've had a lot of computer problems lately while on this site and didn't want another, lol. thanks for your time and efforts.

I just tried in your account, and when I click on the "+" sign for that goal I get a blank box to put a number in. What browser are you using? Can you try deleting the goal and then adding it again to see if that fixes the problem for you?

Jen - it was after I clicked on the +s that I got that confusing drop-down menu. To make sure it wasn't just some weird annomily, I just went into Other Goals again. I clicked on the + beside the goal and when I clicked in the box to say how many meals I made at home that day, I got the same weird drop down menu I described in my previous message. None of the choices suits a number of meals in a day.

You should see boxes with "+" signs in them for each day you track this goal. If you click on those "+" signs, you can put in the number of meals you cooked at home that day.

Does that help?

I signed up for the goal to cook at least 2 meals a week at home. When I went into my Other Goals section to record things, when I selected this goal it asked me how much - how much what? It has a drop down menu to select from that is 6, 72, 60, 150, 5, 8, 87, and 105. I can't think what these choices could be - you could never do 150 meals in a week for eg. and we are to record by the day not the week. Anyone know how to do this one?
