Add Your Avatar

If you’re just getting started on your journey, it is a great idea to add a photo avatar early on in your journey. Not only will it help the community get to know you and share a little about your personality but it is also a great way to document changes in your journey. Remember to save all your avatars as you change them, they make really fun side by side comparisons!

Go into your “Settings"


Click on the "Avatar" tab


Photos/Avatars should not contain nudity, violent, offensive, or copyrighted materials. If violations are reported, please note your Photo/Avatar may be removed, and if abuse of the system persists, your account may be deleted.
