You need to do more than log in to count as a 'visit'. Merely joining doesn't count as activity for that counter.

Quoting from Consecutive days problem #97?:

We see a login on 10-2 but no access to internal pages (login pages, along with a number of other homepage style pages, don't count as "access").

So, yesterday you logged in, but didn't do enough to increase the visits counter.
