The ability to change your weight goal varies by program.
Diabetes Prevention Program
In Lark's Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), your weight goal in Lark is automatically set and cannot be modified. As recommended by the CDC, your weight goal is automatically calculated as 5% less than your starting weight. If you are concerned about this goal, we encourage you to consult your doctor to determine if there is a more appropriate goal weight for you.
In Lark's Wellness program, you will be prompted to select a goal weight as part of the onboarding process if weight loss is one of your areas of focus. You may select your own goal weight for this program, but once selected, it cannot be modified in the future.
Hypertension Care, Diabetes Care, and Heart Health Programs
If you are a participant in one of Lark's other programs, but have selected weight loss as one of your areas of focus, you will be able to modify your weight goal as you see fit. You can modify this goal in the "Coaching Preferences" section of the "Settings" menu, accessed by tapping on the icon in the bottom right corner of the main chat screen.
