Hello,

Your pounds gained are taken from your starting weight and subsequent weight entries added into the program thereafter.

If you’d like to change your starting weight and date, remove erroneous entries, or add weight entries prior to your start date with MyFitnessPal, you can do so by logging into our website at http://www.myfitnesspal.com. Mobile app users should log in using the same username and password they use in the app.

Once you’ve logged in, click “My Home”, then “Check-in”, then “Edit Previous Entries”. On that page, you can delete weight entries, or add new entries for any date. Any changes you make will be synced to the app automatically once the app is connected to the internet.

Users of our iOS app can also remove erroneous weight or measurement entries by swiping the entry from right to left in the list, then tapping the revealed “Delete” button.

If you would like to preserve all of your historical weight data and simply update your weight loss ticker to reflect a new goal, please see this article
