It's just that you've got the same amount of time to lose less weight now, so you can eat more b/c of it.

I am ahead of schedule actually... so it's trying to slow me down to make sure I do it in a healthy way I guess. Interesting... Thanks for the quick reply!

Are you ahead of schedule in your weight loss progress? If so, that could be one reason your range went up.

Hi! ON Sunday I weighed-in (lost 1.5 lbs bringing it to a total of 20lbs) and then my nutrition ranges all changed slightly. I've heard of this happening after you lose a certain amount of weight, but what surprised me was they went up! I used to be allowed 1500-1800 (roughly) calories a day and now it's 1600-1900. Shouldn't it be going down if I'm getting smaller??? Or could it be reacting to a more active lifestyle?? Not sure how much sparkpeople does automatically.
