How do I change my goal? bentleymrk — Oct 14, 2015 06:21PM PDT

I believe when I started out I had entered that I want to lose 2 lbs per week. However, I want to change that to 1lb per week, but there doesn't seem to be any way to do that. is a dead link.

You go to My Home at the top of your screen. You should see a second row of options and Goals should be there.

Sorry for the difficulty with your setting, We were able to turn it on for you on our end, using the mobile app. We will investigate the setting on the site a bit more and see if we can’t get to the bottom of it. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

I would like to change my goal from losing 1# to losing 2# per week - when I followed the suggestion above by going to the HOME page and choosing Goals it does not allow you a place to make that change - HELP!
