Here's how your calorie range is calculated:

Assuming you have set a reasonable, attainable goal for your weight (based on your ticker, about half a pound per week), have accurately updated your fitness goals, and are carefully measuring and weighing everything, it's normal not to lose weight right away. It takes time for healthy lifestyle changes to show up on the scale, *especially* when you start adding exercise to the mix. Make sure you've set your goals appropriately, give it at least 6-8 weeks, and see if things start changing then. Trust in the process, and know that even if the scale isn't necessarily cooperating, you ARE burning fat, and you are making changes in your body. It just takes some time for them to catch up. :)

I have heard a number of members say that they are not losing weight with the calories which have been recommended for their plan. I am questioning whether or not this is my problem as I haven't seen any weight loss in 3 weeks following what I thought was my correct calorie count and exercising daily. Where do I find within the site what should be my correct calorie count and how do I go about changing it if I think it needs to be adjusted? Any other thoughts? Frustrated in CT!! emoticon
