Is there anyway to change your starting weight? I put down 191 but that was according to my scale; WW scale is 6.5 lbs off. I wanted to put my 1.5 lbs for last week but that would not be an accurate weight and I think I really need to see those big numbers right now! Thanks, Annie

i'd like to know as well. i put my starting weight when i registered, over a year ago, not when i actually started - and it was a guesstimate, not even a real weight. i just wanted to check out the site features.

I was able to do it (or maybe I was just adding in my actual starting weight which was on a different date) but if you click on "Weight History" that's where you can do it. I'll try it out and then report back. Smile

Ok, you click on "Weight History" then click on "Enter Historical Weight" (or something like that - on the right side of the screen) and then you just select the date and enter what the correct weight should be.

I found that out too. You can't DELETE a weight entry. And you can only go back 6 months to edit one. Beyond 6 months, forget about it, you can't change a thing. I'd like to get rid of all my entries for August 07, but I'm past the six month mark and can't do anything about it. Crying or Very sad

i have a new challenge, losing more so that i'm at a lower weight than that guesstimate, so i can be a loser!

I think you can change it in tool box, my diet. There is historical weight and goal weight boxes that are change-able.

I tried numerous times to change my start weight from 189lbs to 193lbs... but even within the 6 month cut off, that start line just would not budge. Sad I gave up in the end and am now out the 6 month cut off period, so can't change now anyway. Just means that my first weigh-in shows above my start weight, but would have been nice to have been able to change.

Alas, guess some things that we just have to live with! Rolling Eyes But I'm sure that entering historical weight works for some people.

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
