Adding Starting Measurements from the Past ShilohSelene — May 31, 2018 09:53AM PDT

I have just recently realized you can track your measurements and add measurement categories. I've been recording this in a notebook and would like to add these measurements to MyFitnessPal. Is this possible?

I have gone to where you can edit previous measurements and tried to add my old ones but it doesn't take. Any suggestions are appreciated!

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 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

Hi, thanks I did that for measurements, not weight and it didn't add the measurement.
