What does it mean "If every day were like today... You'd weigh xxx lbs in x weeks?" Does it use the initial starting weight to determine this, or does it use the most recent recorded weight as the basis for this determination?

Hey thanks for posting your question regarding Completing Your Diary Day.
The “Complete This Entry” or “Finish logging for today” feature on your Food Diary page offers a five-week projection of your weight change, using your current weight as a starting point, and assuming that each diary day for the next five weeks will be just like the day you are completing. Please note, this is only an estimate used for motivational purposes. Weight loss does vary for each individual. Many users report that they have lost more weight than projected, while some lose less.
We recommend using this feature only after you have logged all of your entries for the day, but before midnight. You must complete your diary before midnight to generate a post to your News Feed (if you have this option activated). Completing your entry midway through the day may result in a warning message that you are eating too little.
