I have lost over 10 pounds. Each time I put in a new weight, MFP informs me that I've lost over 10 pounds and asks me if I'd like it to recalculate my nutrition and exercise goals. I hit the "yes" button, and it takes me back to the measurement entering screen. What? Why does it want me to re-enter the measurements I just entered? Isn't it supposed to be updating my goals or something? What's the point here? -- This seems like a bug. If I entered my weight and measurements all day long, it would ask me the same question each time and kick me back to the same measurement screen after I said "yes" every time.

If my nutrition and exercise goals should be updated every 10 pounds and that's a feature of MFP, I'd like to explore that. Please advise.

Go to Settings > Update Diet/Fitness Profile (or click ) and hit the green button at the bottom of the screen. This should force a recalculation.

The site will prompt you to recalculate your calorie goals for every ten pounds of weight lost, because you require fewer calories to maintain a lighter bodyweight.

Once you confirm the option to adjust your goals, the site should not prompt you again unless you enter a new weight that is ten or more pounds below your last milestone.

If the site ever seems to be behaving oddly, a good first step is to try emptying your browser's cache. Instructions are here's-Cache

If you are using Internet Explorer, please note that you should uncheck the "preserve data for favorite websites" option if you have MyFitnessPal favorited or bookmarked.
