I DID TERRIBLE TODAY!!! but I didn't have weak moments it was just my food choices, does that make sense? to many high calorie meals in one day. But I only ate till I was full and I drank my water. I worked out played with the kids, and cleaned house. so I am still giving myself a spongebob sticker!

Also, remember that how fast you lose depends on how much extra weight you need to lose. If you weigh over 300 pounds, you might lose 3 pounds a week, but if you're within 50 pounds of a healthy weight, it will be between 1 and 2 at the most.

Yes, if you eat within the range set by SP, you will lose weight according to the goal you put in. It's important, though, that you eat *within* that range, not under it, as not eating enough will hinder your weight loss (and also probably lead to your not getting enough macronutrients).

I think your "1-3" was a typo. SparkPeople recommends not losing more than 2 pounds per week.

Your range is provided by the information you input ... if you said you want to LOSE weight, they give you the range that should accomplish that.

Hope this helps!

If you set your goal date to lose 2 lbs a week, Spark has given you a range to lose around that amount.

So when SP give you how many calories you should eat in a day, is that to meet your goal or just to maintain your weight? So as long as I keep at that calorie limit or under, I should be losing 1-3lbs a week?
