Although I don't post much these days I am usually lurking and still doing 'vanilla 5:2' I haven't been able to update my tracker this week - is anyone else having a problem with it?

Yes same here, have not been able to enter the backlog of data from 10/1/19. I have sent 2 emails with different error messages to the Support address. I can see historic data but not the charts on home tab or enter any more data. Pity as my doctor gave me 3 months notice until end of January to reduce my blood pressure & weight. I have been very remiss and only really got back to fasting on Thursday! 12 days to go as I do not want to go on Ramipril :-)

Got "white coat" syndrome? Fasting is well known to help reduce blood pressure but 12 days might be a bit short. Consider raising the issue with your doctor - that you get very stressed by the BP process - then ask for a take home blood pressure monitor to track your BP every day for a while to gain some needed time. I suggest going to an every other day fast in the mean time. (ADF only sounds terrible. It really isn't. The body adapts quite quickly.)

I haven't used the tracker in years having moved off to a spreadsheet. These days, admin support is infrequent here at best. Tagging @Moogie to look into it may help. There. Done. Hope this helps.

After a break over summer I was ready to fast again. I don’t mind if I can’t use the tracker as this morning I was back to my weight of 12 months ago. :curse: The fast today went surprisingly well.

I hope this reply shows correctly - all previous text is within the same box.

No, I don't have white coat syndrome, my blood pressure went up in late 2017 and I have had various monitors. It is just bad behaviour, too much food, alcohol, not enough exercise and I used to drink Yogi Sweet Chilli tea (which contains liquorice) and Yogi liquorice tea when at work. As it does not stew, I would leave the bag in the mug for however it took me to drink it even up to 2 hours until remembering people with high blood pressure should only consume liquorice in moderation! I now drink coffee bags and red-bush tea at work!

As I expect to retire soon, the weight should drop as I will not need to kill 2.5 hours between end of work and some social events that I usually fill with large portions of restaurant food and additional pints of strong dark ale!

The tracker is to me the most important part of the site as it is the only on line tracker I know of that includes blood pressure. I so miss it and was inputting various BP readings that are taken every 4 weeks or so. I love graphs and charts!

I’ve given up on the tracker being fixed and have recently downloaded a (free) app. I’ve entered as my starting date the day I started on this site but can’t be bothered to enter 5+ years of data. Such a pity.
