Complete entry info PeggySu58 — Jun 19, 2018 07:08AM PDT

I am nearing my weight goal. When I hit the button to complete my daily entry, the app tells me that if I continue at this rate I'll be at a weight 10# or more below my goal in 5 weeks. Why would it do that? It would be more relevant and motivating if, instead, it would tell me how many days or week until I reach my weight goal.

Hi there,

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 will definitely consider other options for the completed day feature for a future update. Thanks for the feedback.

In the meantime, thanks so much for using the program. Please let us know if you have any additional feedback, problems or questions. We wish you all the success in reaching and maintaining all of your diet and fitness goals.

All the best,
