Not sure about where you're clicking, but if you go to GOALS straight from your home page you can reset cals

I've noticed that when you do that, it also changes your calorie goals for previous days ohwell this is not logic, I've lost weight today, so the calorie goal should change for today, not for all the previous days, when I wasn't this weight yet...

It's a simple tool. It would take a lot of work to change the program so that it stores all your past goals. Make a note if it's so important to you. Why are you looking back at your history anyway?

Currently each user gets "one" calorie goal, and nutrient breakdown etc, its applied across ALL their entries as you can only have one. Changing your calories will change your history because only one value is stored for all users. You can of course make use of food notes to track "when" you made a change and state your prior calories and macro breakdown etc. When you go to food > food diary > view full report (printable) you can run a report that only shows your food notes so you can tell when a change was made.

If history wasn't viewable what would the point of MFP even being available be? You can already grab the calories from whatever food packages you're eating etc. For me its the convenience of having a record TO look at. For instance
At least with a paper based journal you'd be able to look back as it seems you think it's only for tracking todays food and never looking back to see what you were doing when you actually had weight loss or see where you went wrong if you had a gain (while trying to lose) etc. But in paper there's no easy way to run reports based on the data etc. Reports are all "history" based as they don't project into the future.
