Total weight loss showing on news feed wilhelminajmd — Sep 01, 2017 04:19AM PDT

Hi, my weight loss shows as a 'total weight lost' as well as my current, but I notice that others only show the current loss - how can I change this setting please?

Hey thanks for posting your question. When viewing your account status we see that as you mentioned your newsfeed post shows lost x lbs since last weighing in! _______ lost x lbs so far.

There is not currently a setting to have the post ignore your total weight loss. The others may have lost weight since their last weigh in but not compared to their starting weight, and so the post leaves that part out.

Some users update their starting weight for that reason.

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
