When you lose more than 10 pounds you are prompted to update your Goals and you choose Yes, then it looks like it just loops back to the same weigh in page but it actually does update, the next step is to go to Goals and Update them to continue to lose how many ever pounds you have it set to lose and then save it.

Ok, so then it changes your goal caloric intake, Great! Or Not, because it changes it for all of your history which then (presuming you have lost weight) appears as though you have exceeded your caloric intake for every day in the past. Why does the change alter the past? The past should be locked and unaltered by whatever your New Goal is.

I definitely agree!

Yes, I totally agree with you. The resetting of goals should not impact the past records.

I hadn't realized that. Yuck. No I wouldn't want it to look like I had been over previously either...
