Can someone tell me how to update the ticker that chronicles my weight loss? I just can't seem to figure it out. Thanks in advance!

I am 64 years old and in the pre-surgery phase for gastric by-pass.  In 2011 I had a lap band put in and had it for almost a year. I struggled to lose weight with it - over the course of the year I had it, I lost a total of 40 lbs and much of that was
