The calorie range was 1300-1600 with little to no excercise and bumped up to 2000-2300 when I said I'd excercise 20 min 4 times a week. I'm just under 300 now. I know I'm not burning the full amount of what's been estimated due to lower limb limitations. I guess I don't want to be hurting myself by eating too little, but when I was aiming at 1400-1600 I have been losing steadily, so I'm not really sure I want to mess with that.

TISHNICITY- I think if you change your excercise goals (the part that says how many min or calories of what kind of excercise you are going to do) and have your weight tracker updated the calories adjust on their own. I found the link to change in the "warning" message under my fitness tracker.

JunkDrawer, Hi, I set up my calorie/nutrition needs when I was barely working out 2 yrs ago. I've increased my exercise by distance, minutes and weight and I also keep getting these "warnings". I had the same question...how do I change the # of calories I am suppose to eat. My calorie range is 1200-1500 currently. My trainer says that's too low. I don't know what to do. Hopefully somebody will respond. Very frustrating! Good luck. Awesome that you are losing weight. If I get to the bottom of this, I'll let you know. emoticon

I agree that it's a bit difficult without any numbers to reference.

A quick question about your "free day"... if it takes you awhile to 'come back down from it', are you letting yourself go overboard on sodium on that day?? The water weight gain gets me really quick I've discovered!! If you are the same, you might at least be mindful of that one nutrient on your free day.... Good Luck!

Could you give us some specific numbers? There's not much information here to go on. :)

I've been doing really well losing weight the past several weeks with the calorie range I have been at and the excercise I've been doing, but SP is warning me I need to bump up my calories with the increase of excercise I've been trying to list.

I am mostly tracking minutes as I can't fully do the workouts accorning to how an able bodied person does so I don't think the estimates are true to what I'm accomplishing.

The leap in calorie count was huge and compared to what I've been eating seems kind of massive. I haven't been this successful in losing weight in years, so I'm afraid to mess up what is working, but I don't want to go to "the bad" side if I really should be eating more.

I have been having a "free" day once a week where I really do eat more than typical and it seems like it takes a while for my body to come back down again.

Any thoughts for me?
