Will My Goals Change If My Weight Changes?

Every time you record your weight in our system, MyFitnessPal checks to see if you've lost 10 pounds since the last time your goals were calculated. If so, we'll ask you if you'd like to reset your goals based on your new weight. We recommend logging your weight once a week.

Please note, if you lose weight, your calorie intake may decrease. Think of your body like a car: the more it weighs the more fuel it requires to get from Point A to Point B. The less weight, the less fuel is required.
