In addition to the advice below, it sounds like you may be eating too little- A baseline estimate for calories burned is 100/mile, so if you ran 18 miles you likely burned at least 1800 (but it's probably higher given your speed, heart rate, etc)! I am nowhere near your weekly mileage (I do 20-25/week) but I do adjust my intake accordingly- you are also almost at your goal so losing will be more difficult.

But to me, it sounds like you're not eating enough. I would put into the fitness calculator that you burn at least 4000 calories/week and see how it adjusts your food range. I think you're right to eat more on days you run more and less on days you don't run/run less.

Hope that was somewhat helpful! And I can't recommend a heart rate monitor enough if you don't wear one!

Current goal:
- 32 by end of April.

Next goals: -
39 total by end of May.
-46 by end of June.

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!

If you know how many calories you are burning while you are working out, you may want to add that in your fitness settings. (if you wear a heart rate monitor it will best estimate what you burn during your workouts)

Here is some additional info that you may find useful.

This isn't really a panic question but a question I can't seem to get answer too so I figure I will try on here. I noticed once I upped my milage runninng to 40 - 45 miles a week my weight loss just stalled again. For the longest time my weightloss stalled because I was under eating but after tweaking my calories and adding about 200 - 250 calories a day it restarted . I am down to around 133 I haven't weighed myself in a few weeks because its a slippery slope for me. I am just going on how my clothes fit and weighing about once a month. I am careful on what I eat. I know by 100% certainty that i am not over eating but I am wondering if maybe I am under eating again. Yesterday I ran 18miles and by the end of the day I was at 2800 calories I was stuffed couldn't eat anymore. So today i am at loss for how much I should eat. I do t thinking should be eating 1500( to low) ....the days I don't exercise I eat less the days I run. 10 miles or more I try to eat a lot more .Any advice is apprecited ....thanks :-)
