How many people are in this range?
* I started in this range but didn't find it to work well for myself. I changed my goal from 1750-2100, high I know, but right now it's working for me.

How many pounds are you supposed to lose every week to reach your goal?
* I'm aiming for 1-2 pounds each week, and so far (week 2) I'm at 3 pounds down.

How tall are you?
* 5'10

My range is a little higher than that, 1,330-1,680, because my weight loss goals are fairly minimal but my exercise level is a bit higher than it used to be. I currently have my goals set to lose 1lb per week and I work out for at least half an hour per day, 6 days a week. I'm losing a little faster than anticipated so I'm doing the juggling act of figuring out if I need to eat a bit more or just work with the accelerated loss, but I don't want to lose too much muscle so it's a bit of a judgement call. I'm 5'3" or a hair under.

You're likely to find a *lot* of people in the 1200-1550 range, because it's the lowest range promoted by SP.

That's my range because if i go any higher I dont lose weight. I'm 58 so losing is a little harder for me.

That has been my range most weeks. Occasionally, it will be slightly higher.

I am 5'2". I have lost a little over 60 pounds and have 60-70 left to go. I think that my current goal is set for about 1.5 pounds a week. I think that I listed less exercise than I generally tend to do, but it's not set for sedentary.

I'm thinking of setting up a new account and linking my Fitbit to it to see what ranges I get with the new fitness tracking method. I don't currently have my Fitbit linked on this account.

Mine is a bit lower due to my height. I am 4'11 and more than 40% body fat, so for weight loss my range is from 1100 to 1225.

I'm a little higher - 1260-1610-ish if I remember right. I have exercise goals and meet them weekly. I'm 5'6" tall and I don't lose 2lbs a week on that range, but I have my goal set at 2lbs a week.

Does height play a role in weight loss and calories? I admit I haven't been reading a lot about that, but I thought it was just weight.

That is my range also. I am 5'0" and set it up as "sedentary" since I'm not working for the summer. However, now that I'm working out each day I don't know if I should change it or just let my tracker adjust for my calories burned. I don't remember how many pounds I set it to lose a week.

That is my range. I am a 5' 5'' woman. When I set up my spark program, I set my goal to lose 2 lbs per week. I lose between 1 to 2 lbs per week with this range.

I am in this range, 5'4" and it is set to lose 2 pounds per week. This is before the fitness is calculated in (I changed to the updated linked trackers)

That's my range on SP.

I'm 5' 7" and about 200lbs. I actually find that range incredibly difficult and definitely the lower end... especially on days when I exercise, but obviously I eat a little more on those days.

Mine's actually 1260-1610. Which is strange because ever since I hit 140 lbs or so it's been 1200-1550. I recently switched from maintenance to weight loss again after gaining some weight so it must have to do with my goal date update. I think I set it to 1 lb/week. But there's going to be a lot of other factors that affect a person's calorie range; age, gender, (height), weight, exercise calories burned, (goal date).

I'm 5'2.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

That's my range.
I believe it's the minimum for females.

I'm 5'2"
I believe the average expected weight loss is about a pound per week; but I suspect also it depends on where you begin (how much you have to lose).

As I'm pretty close to my goal; I don't lose at that rate any longer, but that's OK. It's training for maintenance.

Also, I'm considerably older than you, which is a determining factor, as well.

How many people are in this range? How many pounds are you supposed to lose every week to reach your goal? How tall are you?
