I agree with everyone - when i eat too low on the calorie range for too long I stall...if you don't want to bump up too far every day then try having at least a few days a week that you eat higher to prevent your body from going into starvation mode.. And you might also want to look closely at how much sodium and processed foods you are eating. When I eat "clean" I have more energy and feel fuller..
Let us know when you find what works.

I think Sparkpeople calorie range is a guide, but everyone's body is different and especially if you are working out, your metabolism might have went into storage mode. I think you did the right thing by up-ing your calories, and WW program is designed so you can see up to 1-2 pounds weightloss per week so you can eat more calories versus if you were trying to see 3-4 pounds loss per week. Good luck and just do what works for you!

Thanks for the Ideas! I know that I am just going to have to play around with the calories, but I must be doing something right, I am wearing smaller clothes and I just did my Measurements and have lost 15.5 inches since march!! emoticon

I know its more frustrating when I compare myself to others weight loss speed. I am proud that I have kept with it, the OLD me would have just quit because it wasn't working the way I want it to. :)

Try upping your calories again. I was at 1200-1300 for a while same 1-2lbs fluctuation I upped it to 1500 min and now I'm dropping steadily.

Are you drinking half your body weight in ounces of water??? Always makes a difference for me ... not the 64 recommended... Also maybe change what you are eating even within your calorie range.

I have a question for all the ladies out there that are winning the battle of the bulge.

I am eating within my calorie range every day. I noticed when I would eat at the lower end 1100-1200 I wasn't losing weight. So I increased it to the 13-1400 calories and started seeing the scale move slowly. I am also exercising ( not as frequent as I should) and drinking my water. Even with all of this I have been stuck at the same weight for weeks, I might see a 1-2 pound loss just to see it back the following week! I can't seem to move forward. My question is should I decrease my calorie intake or keep it the same, and just increase my workouts?
I am confused about this because my WW calorie range is MUCH higher and I always do great on WW, even without working out everyday.

Thanks for listening
