Default Calories burned - wait a minute!

Looking at the Overview page, I see my calories burned number is the same for today's, for the week, for the past 2 weeks, for the past 4 weeks, for the past 2 months?????

Who's doin' the math here?

Another customer satisfaction issue that will be ignored?

That's odd, mine works fine. Is this a new issue or has it done this right along? Does refreshing the browser help? Let us know.

Mine's working fine too. Are you entering your activities? If not then the calories burned would be the same for every day. Just a thought.

If the vast majority of your calories burned are through your basic metabolic rate, and the calories burned through extra activities logged is fairly small and/or very consistent, you could be getting the same average repeatedly.

I've had this same problem for a long while now It seems to affect users randomly! The "Input" calories changes appropriately, but the Burned doesn't on the Overview tab no matter what category I hit, and I do definitely exercise at different levels on different days/weeks (and when I do the averages myself on a trusty calculator, the numbers come out different).

It's weird. I reported it a couple of months ago in here. Not a game-breaker for me, but definitely a little frustrating.

Female, 31 years old, 5'4 1/2" tall
Starting weight 1/4/11 = 215.2 lbs.
Weight 10/22/14 = 175.0 (net: -40.2)
Last mini-goal: 175 lbs. REACHED 10/22/14 --REWARD: New wallet
Current min-goal: 170 lbs.
Next large goal: 165 lbs. by 12/25/2014
Lowest weight: 156.7 lbs.
150.2 lbs. <--- Official "Healthy BMI" weight
Estimated final goal: 130-140 lbs.

Thanks for the input everyone. Problem persists today. It seems to take the daily calories burned from one day (today), and that number doesn't change as I scroll thru the other options. The actual average for the past 7 days, for example, was 2850. Today I burned 3153, and that's the number that shows as the "average" for all the other options... Not a biggie, as was pointed out, but it would be nice if it worked thevway it should. (I'm using an iPad, might that be an issue?)
