So, I just reached my short-term goal of 200lbs, which is great. But sometime between reaching that goal and putting in my new goal (180 by Sept 19) SparkPeople dropped my calorie allotment by about 400cal/day!
So yesterday, I went over their suggested calories, because I didn't realize my allotment had dropped till the end of the day when I was tracking!
But does anyone know why it dropped so drastically and so suddenly?
Edit: It's interesting, because up until now I had manually changed the calorie allotment to be LOWER than SP suggested. Now I'm tempted to change it to be higher than they suggest. I had my RMR tested back in May and it was 1815. Granted, that was 17 lbs ago, but I can't imagine my RMR has dropped over 300cal in 2 months, but now SP wants me to eat around 1500cal/day, even if I'm working out 5 days a week.
