I did misread the starting weight. It is 1200. I use the iPad tracker and not website as much. Not till yesterday really did I even use the website. I find inputting with the iPad easier so I only try to imput with that. But I looked at the graphs and such it does now say my pervious input were way over what I was supposed to eat. I am going to assume my lose of 1.5 pounds is what changed my calories and just eat even less now.

It sounds like maybe you were reading the line that tells you how many calories you have left for the day based on what you had already eaten and entered. Since you are new, you may want to take a little time reviewing the site tutorials we have especially the one about the nutrition tracker to help you become familiar with the tools a little more.

here is the thing- the only way for your allowance to have changed to 1000 to 1550 is for you to have changed it yourself. spark ranges are 350 cals and the lowest number is never below 1200.
so go to your start page. look for goals and progress on the left hand side. make sure your calories burned number is accurate. then make sure your current weight is accurate, and use the little help link on the right of the weight page to make sure you aren't trying to lose more than 1% of your bodyweight per week. make sure you save. and then see what your ranges are. the top and bottom need to be 350 apart and over 1200. if they are still funky, you need to go to the technical help forum so that they can sort out whatever glitch there is with your account.

The calorie intake range is recalculated whenever you save the Fitness Goals page or the Weight Loss Goals page.

If you're not sure if the currently showing range is right for you, click the 'change' link next to fitness and weight, check the figures on each of those pages, and Save them both. The nutritional range will be recalculated for those goals specifically and will be accurate, even if it's not what you expect from before.

I am not sure if this is the right place, but recently I entered in one item of food I ate. Then when I went to change the amount I ate after the change my calorie allowance dropped dramatically to 1000-1550. I can't remember what it was before, but I am confused. I haven't done anything overly different and I just started this site a few days ago.
