Yep, I'm a little
right now. It's been a total of four months that I've been on my Spark journey and I've lost 17lbs. I'm happy about the loss. Any progress is good. Slow and steady wins the race. Then today in all my infinite wisdom I decided to take a look at my Weight Loss Over Time report and my Calorie Differential Over Time report that Spark provides. Well what do we have here? According to the Weight Loss Over Time report I should be about 20lbs less than what I am right now, which means I'm losing at a MUCH slower rate than the 1-2lbs per week that is supposed to happen if you stay within your calorie range. I always stay within my calorie range! Ok, so let me see what the problem is so I can fix it. Let me look at my Calorie Differential Over Time report. Guess what? I consume way fewer calories than my BMR burns daily, AND I burn anywhere from 600-2400 cals per week in fitness. Bottom line, my deficit is definitely big enough that I should be seeing better losses here. Now I'm upset. I can't tell what's wrong, so I don't know how to fix it.
