Always such helpful information from Spark members!
I think my range is 1200-1550 still because I am trying to reach my original goal set at the beginning of 2012 to reach my goal weight by the end of 2012. This may or may not happen, but I am going to work toward it until it becomes unrealistic then I will update my goal date to be further out again and move forward with a new goal if need be.
I have been losing weight without much exercise until now (sporadic at best) and I wanted to be sure that with the addition of regular exercise that I am still following the Sparkpeople recommendations and that I understand and enter my information correctly. Since it takes a calorie burn of 2000-3000 calories per week to trigger an increase in Sparkpeople recommendations then that is why mine did not change... my exercise plan of 5 days 20 min cardio + 2 days 20 min strength training only amounts to around 750 calories burned for the week.
