I've had my FitBit for a month, and I've been tracking pretty well. And I have lost 1-2 pounds.
Last night I decided to look at some of the reports since there is a months worth of info.
1. I've been within my SP ranges. (sometimes high, sometimes low)
2. My "calories to burn goal" (set by SP) has been exceeded every single day. By ALOT
3. I don't get 8 hours of sleep a day :)
Today I read quiet a bit about "starvation mode", not eating enough ect ect. I even sent my SparkCoach an email laying out the specifics.Not to be negative about SC, but they only advised me to track food and be patient.Which is good, it just didnt feel very personalized.
After my research I decided to go into my fitness settings and update my activities. That upped my calorie range by about 100 or so.
I'm not terribly upset about the loss of only 1 pound in a month. I **am** concerned that I may not be eating enough to fuel my body. And that is not in keeping with my health goals. It would be nice to see bigger losses ofcourse.
Any thoughts or advice would be welcomed.
Dec 31st -start date -just starting to workout, reducing intake but not hungry.
