I have been searching and searching for the answer to this question!!! I think I found it from SPCoach Denise on another thread. I tried it and it works! Here's the answer in my own words - which are, IMO, easier to understand:

1. Go to your Start page - in Step 1, click the button for Full Tracking (that's my default setting).
2. Under "Track Weight," there's a very small, very faint and fuzzy button called "Edit Goals."
3. Click on that, and it takes you to the correct page to just reset your weight loss goals.

I would really like to be able to see my recent progress on the graph in the mobile app without deleting all the data I have from my efforts over the previous months and years. There is no current way that I am aware of to change the start date for that graph and it arbitrarily starts for me in July of 2013.

I do not want to reset my goals if that will erase all my tracking data because I like being able to go back and look at what I have previously accomplished. I don't think that adding the ability for users to set saved start date for the graph is asking for too much and I believe it is a feature that many people would appreciate.

To reset your goals so that your report does not show everything:

- Go to your Start page
- Choose "Account/Email Preferences"
- Scroll down to "Reset your Goals"

This will keep your favorites and food groupings but all goals and anything you've tracked will be removed. You will then set your new goal with current info. This made my results over time report reflect my current data instead of going back to when I started a few years ago.

The goal start date has nothing to do with the report start date. For example, my goal start date is Sept. 19, 2011, but when I run the report it starts with April 8, 2012.

Go to the main page and locate your goals window on the bottom left. The last one in the box is your weight tracker. Under your current readout is a link to change start date. Click it. Change it to whatever you want. Make sure you check the year as well... save and run report. Bingo.

The part I don't understand is that obviously that date is set somewhere. How hard could it be to let the user set it? I'm still trying to figure out how the graph decided to use April 4, 2012 for my graph. Very annoying.

Clearly, no one is in fact listening. I am really disappointed at the lack of response on this. I will be shopping other comparable sites that do provide this facility and I'll report back on here if I do find anything better. Disappointed...

I'm all in!

I agree changing the start date over and over gets old and I also do not know why my goal line is messed up. I am on target for reaching my weight goal but the line makes it look like I am way behind. Why does it do this?

Ugh, me too -- I've done several different weight loss efforts (some less successful then others) with maintenance in between. When I view the weight over time report I don't want to see everything, just the most recent goal (ie: from that declared start point forwards).
Even it's too difficult to give us total flexibility to save a new default start date, can the report at least be changed to use the "start date" of your current weight goal? The information is all there already so it should be trivial to change.

I know I use the tool less often because of this -- and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Add me to the list of people in support of being able to change the start date. It's worse on the mobile app, since you cannot even change the start date after running the report like you can on the web site.

This has inspired me to print my records. I am still a little confused over the start date. I am able to change it temporarily however, I don't understand how the goal line makes me look like I am not on track. I need to work on goals in terms of weight loss! Thanks for the motivation!

I too would really like to be able to set the start date for reports. It is tiresome to have to change each time I run the report so that I can see any detail...

Hey guys,
I too, and I bet thousands of others also would like this enhancement.

Allow the user to save a start date so they don't have to go back and do it every time they run a report.

Let's face it. Most people dealing with the weight loss challenge ( I didn't say diet.) fall off the wagon some time along the way. When they get back at it, they may or may not want to track things from when they joined the sparkpeople site. So enabling a report start date change to be saved, rather than entered each time, would allow the user to choose exactly what they want going forward, and save a little time each day, or each time they run a report.

Please implement this minor enhancement so thousands of users don't have to temporarily change the date every time they run a report.

Thanks for the great site and best wishes for making it even greater.

Hi,

Unfortunately there isn't a way to permanently change that. I will, however, pass it along as a suggestion!

How can I change my starting date on the weight loss over time graph? I started my diet in March, but then slipped off for awhile and now in October I'm starting up again. Every time I look at my weight loss graph to see how I'm doing against my goal line I have to change the start date. Is there any way to permanently change my start date so that every time I open the graph it is on my current progress? I know you can change it above the graph by clicking on "change start date" but I don't want to have to do this every time I come in.

Thanks!
