What happens when you reset your starting weight or diet?

I've lost a lot of weight since starting and would prefer to see my current weight loss and diet journal performance based on just the last few months rather than the last 2 years. However, I don't want to completely delete this historical data. It is a nice reminder of how far I've come.

Does resetting your starting weight just alter the first entry in your weight journal or does it add a new entry that counts as a new starting weight? If it's the second, can you still see old weight entries?

Same thing with restarting a diet. Does it just set a new starting point or does it wipe out all of the historical weight and food journal entries and start over?

Thanks for the feedback. Smile I've also reset my weight goal and RDI and not had any issues. My question is more about changing the starting values. I would like to know if I go to MY FATSECRET > MY DIET and choose either "a: change starting weight" or or "b: restart diet", what happens.
