stages of wellness. To add photos to the Timeline use the Choose Photo button
as you are entering your weight. The photo will show up in your Timeline automatically,
along with any notes you enter on that day.

Why is my date of birth needed?
For growing children using the growth chart features, date of birth is critical
for all computations. For adults using the weight chart, date of birth is used for
computation of your BMI and BMR. If you do not wish to provide your birth date,
you can specify a slightly incorrect birth date for a minimal impact on the formulas.
How is Growth Chart different from Weight Chart?
Growth Charts are designed for growing children under 18 years of age. For the growing
children using growth charts, you are able to specify not only their weight, but
also their height, and head circumference. Growth charts show your weight, height,
and head circumference as percentiles of CDC growth data. You can switch from growth
chart to weight chart from the Preferences page.

How does Chart Sharing work?
Chart Sharing is a very powerful feature of WeightChart.com. You can share your
chart with any other user of WeightChart.com. It allows the other user to see your
chart and exchange messages with you. Please note that Chart Sharing is one way.
When you share your chart with someone, it does not allow you to see their chart.
They need to share their chart with you in order for you to see it.
You can share your charts with family, friends, wellness buddies, trainers, doctors,
Where can I look up a member to share a chart with?
You cannot look up other WeightChart.com members. WeightChart.com is part of the
eWoFF Network. We believe that most individuals are private by nature and are reluctant
to engage with people that they do not know. eWoFF Network is a private network
for family and friends. We do not help you link with others. You should share charts
only with WeightChart.com users who have given you their username and agreed to
share chart with you.
How do reminders work?
If you choose to receive reminders we will email you to help you stay on track.
You will receive a reminder once your selected number of days have passed since
your last weight entry. If you have selected to receive more than one reminder each
will arrive in the same frequency as your selected number of days. For example if
you have selected to receive reminders after 7 days and no more than 3 each time,
your reminders will arrive at 7, 14, and 21 days and then stop. Reminders will also
stop and reset when you enter your weight.
Why am I not getting reminders?
If you should be getting reminders and are not, please send and email to
info@WeightChart.com with your username, email, and phone (if callback acceptable).
Your email in our system may be incorrect or the reminder message may be undelivered
for one of many reasons.
