Just to add, Spark ranges are in increments of 350 calories (i.e. 1200-1550, 1300-1650, 1750-2100, etc.) This is both normal and not at all a huge range. Eating at the lower end of your range isn't always better. I lose better at the high end of my range. The point is based on the data you entered, you'll lose weight *anywhere* in your rage, that's the whole point of it. So don't necessarily make it a point to eat only at the low end of your range.

Feeling "crazy tired" all the time may well be because you aren't eating enough! Have you entered your average weekly exercise caloric burn into Spark so that it adjusts your calories needed? The more you work out, the more you do have to eat to sustain your activity.

It looks like you are only doing 25 minutes of exercise most days--that is easily something that you can step up if you have hit a plateau.

It is hard to comment on your eating since you don't share your nutrition tracking.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

KATSHIA,

While a safe weekly weight loss would be 1-2 pounds per week. There will be weeks you don't lose. there will even be weeks you gain ! And that doesn't mean you're doing anything wrong.

You mentioned that you recently started T25. A change in your workout routine would cause the slight slow down you're seeing. Why ? When a person works their muscles intensely, their muscle fibers soak up water like a sponge. This is what they are supposed to do. Your muscle fibers will release any excess water they don't need once your body has adapted to the new routine.

In short, once your body adapts to the change in exercise routine, your weight loss would return to some normalcy. But do keep in mind there will be weeks you don't lose and that doesn't mean something is wrong.

Also, if you have increased the amount of exercise you do, you will need to increase the amount you eat. Eating too little and exercising too much can hinder your efforts at weight loss.

Mostly, I suspect you just need to be more patient with your body.

Hi!
So my weight loss has been slowing down to nadda since I started T25 three weeks ago, although I think it is a way harder workout then I did before (Jillian Michaels 30 day shred). I also started really watching what I ate when I started T25 and Im wondering if maybe Im eating too little and thats why it seems like no weight (or inches!!) is coming off? Im just confused because I had awesome results on the Jillian Michaels 30 day shred which was easy compared to what Im doing now, but now Im getting no results! I lost about 20 inches and 20lbs in the 30 day shred!! Trying to figure out what on earth Im doing wrong or if I need to do a different workout or such.

I've been eating 1300-1400 calories a day, Sparkpeople recommends 1300-1700 which is a huge range and Ive just been sticking to the lower end of it because I figured that was better. My macros are: Protein 70-100, Carbs 125-165 (I'm on low carb orders from my Dr) and Fat is 40-70ish. I've been sticking within these ranges, avoiding processed food, eating clea, but feeling crazy tired all of the time and seeing no weight loss. My BRM is 2700, my T25 workout each day averages 400 calories which means my average daily input is 1350 and my average output is 3100 which leaves me burning 1750 calories a day through workout and BRM. My weight is 427lbs.
.
If you have any advice I would greatly appreciate it Thanks!
