Goal - Maintain Current Weight DKeihl — Feb 19, 2016 06:41AM PST

When I reach my goal weight and change my goal to "maintain my current weight" which weight does My Fitness Pal try to maintain? The goal weight or my entered current weight? What happens if my current weight begins to drift above or below (let's say by 5 lbs or more) my goal weight? Does My Fitness Pal recalculate to help me gain or lose weight to get back to my goal weight or does it adjust to maintain my new "current weight?"

Thank you for taking the time to post in the MyFitnessPal support center. MyFitnessPal will calculate your maintenance based on your current weight at the time you change your setting.

It will not recalculate goals again until you choose to adjust it.

Hope this helps.
