I still think it would be helpful to have a generic "weight training" category. I don't want to list every rep and every set; I do this on a paper record that I bring to the gym. You could categorize it by (a) light, (b) medium and (c) heavy, and even put a disclaimer that it varies.

If you don't want to do that, I'd like to have the option of adding it myself and putting in the calories I burn (which are quantified) from my Body for Life weight training program. I can't figure out how to do this. Right now, I've found a generic weight training category under "cardio" so have put it there (which technically is okay but doesn't allow me to monitor weight training goals). Thanks for your help! Other than that, the program has been very helpful and easy to use re food intake. (And I've dropped 3 lbs this week!)

You should be able to do this by clicking on the EXERCISE tab at the top and then adding your own activity entry under Strength Training or Cardio. Then you can log whatever stats you want. May not be exactly what you are looking for but...that's what I would do. Good luck and congrats on your loss this week.
