Scriptrunner Duration in Status code not working as expected Edited

I have used the scripted field from Scriptrunner to calculate the duration of the in progress status on my issues ( and that appears to work for everything except the Beginning status.

I use the code above for a scripted field that looks at the beginning status in Jira.  It is returning a negative number.  So, for instance, if my status when an item is created is PENDING APPROVAL, the code seems to be returning a negative number all the time an doesn't give me the actual time the item is in that status.  

Looking at the code, it appears it should be working properly. 
my next test will be to add this to another system to ensure it's not just in this server.

Any other suggestions?
