Don't forget, too, that you don't always see immediate results from a change in your diet. It can sometimes take a week or two for your body to display the results of changes you've made. Patience, patience...

SO...it must have been a fluke. I upped my calories to 2200-2400 and the scale started to slowly creeeeeep upwards, so I am back down to 1800-2000 and have already lost a pound. So I don't know what it was, but it was worth investigating.

Hmmmm....This is quite interesting. I am curious to how increasing my caloric intake would affect my weight loss. I might have to experiment a little.

Let us know how it goes, if you continue with about 2400 or decide to go back to 1800ish.

Ah, that makes sense then! if you're exercising that much then your body needs more calories to function better and make milk.

When you were eating fewer calories, your body was hanging on to the weight to sustain itself because it wasn't getting the energy/calories it needed.

Definitely up your calories. It just goes to show that every person has different needs with calories.

It might have been you were busier over the holiday with shopping, cooking, cleaning, etc and you burned more calories which may have lead to the weight loss.
Or it may have been the type of foods you were eating?
Just an idea.

Are you exercising? Because the weight will come off easier and faster with some moderate exercise just 3x a week. Then you'll definitely need more calories too.

I would say you need the higher calorie range!

I have followed all of the recomendations that have been given about adding 300 to 500 calories to what spark people tells me and I wasn't seeing that much of a weight loss eating 1800 to 2000 calories. Over the holidays I was eating around 2400 calories and I lost more weight then before on the lower calorie amount. My baby is 7 months old and eats about 2 jars of baby food and 6 Tbsp of cereal a day, along with bf 5-6 times, and me pumping once in the evening. Is it just a fluke that I lost more weight when I ate more calories, or is it my body telling me that I need to eat more to loose weight? emoticon
