Looking through the forum archives, I know MANY people on here have requested a ticker option to show weight gain if that is their goal, whether they are bulking, gaining pregnancy weight, recovering from an eating disorder, etc. This feature has been requested by various people for at least two years, probably longer. And administrators have always said 'we agree, and it's on the way.' Well, where is it? This is My FITNESS Pal, not My Weight Loss Pal. It's great that MFP helps people lose weight if that's their goal, but maintaining and gaining are equally legitimate goals. It troubles me that the updates I see are "UserName was under their calorie goal today" or "UserName lost two pounds since their last weigh-in," as though those are universally positive. I understand that society generally conflates weight loss with progress, but for some of us, gaining weight is progress. Please take some time to make the ticker and progress updates more inclusive.

I'd like to see this too. Looking at the lengthy archive on this subject, surely the developers have had enough time to work this feature in?

This cannot be reiterated enough times. Many, MANY people have weight gain as a goal. Please implement this feature!
