And it makes you keep the Just For Today expectations realistic! Which will make your monthly / yearly targets more likely to actually be hit!
(And regular review on all scales gives you a chance to make realistic adjustments, based on unexpected changes in circumstance - like illness or injury slowing you down for a short time, or increased base fitness level allowing higher weekly exercise calorie burns, thus allowing you to up your month-by month expectations later in the year.)

I have a question. Why do some folks put their exercise as 1 calorie? Is it because they don't want to mess up their caloric totals or something? I've seen several people have a big workout and the calorie count burned is only 1.

@BMcC9, those are great circles!@BonnieHosk85, I think they want to track the exercise without accounting for the calories, either because they've already tracked the exercise some other way (like very active or a device that syncs) or they just don't eat/want exercise calories logged.@stephensweeney93, that's an awesome accomplishment! It's all about finding something that works for you, and it definitely sounds like you're winning the UAC even if you won't be in the winners' circle!
