Hi everyone!! I've been browsing around Sparkpeople for about 2 weeks now and I'm super impressed!
Last January I started on my weight loss journey and with the help of Weight Watchers I lost about 20 lbs. The year prior to that I had lost about 20, also by counting calories. Well, life happened I was honestly sick of watching what I ate! I went on vacation and gained about 10 lbs, lost a few, and then gained a few more. Today I weigh about 155 (I'm 5'4", female, 25 yrs old). My goal is somewhere around 133 which, according to Spark People, I should hit in December of this year!
I really like that Sparkpeople gives you a calorie range to hit each day, rather than a set in stone number. I am a little confused by it though. I've read the article about how the numbers are calculated, but if I eat at the top of my range everyday, I won't lose as much weight as my plan has accounted for, right? I'm also doing Jazzercise about 5 times a week, and a couple other various workouts on my own. I accounted for this in my fitness goals.
