When setting up, did you put your activity level to "active"? If so, change it to "sedentary" and see what calorie range comes up.

Also if your ticker is stubbornly in kg, there is a way to fix it. You go to your Start page, look for the little link near the top-left "account/email preferences." Go there, and down in the middle of the page, in the My Information section, there's a checkbox "use metric system." Uncheck it. Then your ticker will show in pounds.

Any idea how i would rectify it ? Ive tried changing my goal to 190 ..180. and loss 1 - 2lb .calories still stay high..I am at present 211

No Im sure i chose pounds ..its only the ticker thats showing kgs for some reason.
Would i have to delete my account and restart ?

I just saw your 2nd post...
Is your program set up using Killograms instead of pounds???---this will make your calorie range incorrect. It would make you appear to be a much larger person than you actually are.

For most women...1500-1850 would be a too high calorie range for weight loss. I am wondering why yours is so high. Sometimes this happens for members who have a greater amount to lose (like more than 100#) or when one is doing hours of exercise. I think there maybe something set up incorrectly with your program. ????

I don't think so, no.

For starters, I don't think you have enough to lose to be able to manage 2 lbs per week. If you were looking at 50+ pounds to lose, then yes, but you have about 24 to lose, according to your ticker. The less we have to lose, the slower it will come off. For your goal, something closer to .5-1 lb per week would be much more reasonable.

Eating less than your recommended range will NOT make it come off faster, either; less is not more in this case. In fact, undereating by so much (up to 200 less than your minimum range) will actually slow your metabolism because it's not enough to fuel your workouts. The range you are given is to account for your exercise.

Are you sure you have your goals set up properly? That doesn't sound like the kind of range a 2 lb loss at your weight would produce.
