go to your sparks page and add a tracker. Is that what you want? there are all kinds you can use or add.

I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."

PUDDIN1970 I find mine at the bottom of the nutrition tracker. It gives you a range of todays calorie intake so far and the numbers you should stay between. My question for you is how do you get that ribbon type of thing at the bottom that shows your weight count down to your goal weight?

okay here is a stupid question.. where do you find out what your calories intake should be? Sorry I was just trying to find stuff on here - but off and on this site and Im trying to make it work this time!

Yes, I have lost being within the Spark range. And right now I'm not losing but I'm also training for a half marathon and I've been told not to expect to loss weight during training time because of gains in muscle, blood and bone mass.

Just another thing in favor of not putting all your success evaluation on the scale reading.

Add a few non-scale measures and hang in there!

Hi ISISREIGN,

Remember weight loss is not linear. In other words, there may be some weeks where you don't lose anything and other weeks where you may lose. But for me knowing that I will always have to watch what I eat and I will always have to exercise, made it easier to cope when my weight loss stalled.

Hang in there!

I am down 7 pounds staying in my range in two weeks. Your range depends on a number of factors. I will let the experts advise further. But in answer to your question- yes!

Make it a great day!

Have any of you guy and gals had any successful weight loss by actually staying within the recommended calorie value spark people give you, or or you eating right under it? My range is 1200-1550 a day. I know it may seem like a stupid question but I've found myself just being able to maintain my weight more recently and not actually lose. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
