Keeping track of your weight can help you monitor progress. It allows you to see which changes to your health habits are working and which might need some adjustment.
Your initial weight goal is based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and reflects a 6% weight loss from the first weight you logged in the app. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends weight loss of 5%-7% of body weight to prevent diabetes.
