Yes, that's exactly the problem. I've noticed ever since I started Spark's I've been losing weight more rapidily than the approximate cal deficit I'm creating.
The last couple of weeks I've been losing 2-2.5/week still! And at my weight that is quite a lot. Even though I'm eating an avg of 1400 cals a day and my deficit is only set to lose 1 lb/week. I do cardio every other day for around an hour plus a 20 minute JM video before my ST just to make a 2000 cal weekly burn according to my Spark numbers. Which honestly is getting to be a bit much considering I'm losing weight too quickly which is making it even harder to burn 2000 cals for the week and I would have to workout an hour every day (with no rest day) to achieve that. A bit difficult to do when you have 2 small children.
I really want to cut back a bit on my exercise and the amount of weight I'm losing, at the rate I'm losing it seems to indicate to me that I have been overdoing it anyways. After testing with the HRM it would seem the estimate I got from it would make more sense as to why I'm losing so rapidily compared to what Spark suggests.
Edit: Oh, and this video by JM seems to be far more cardio than ST compared to her other videos. It's mainly burpees, high knees, jump rope, 180's, cross country, skaters, single leg hops, jumping jacks, mountain climbers, mogals, butt kicks etc. Honestly, it is the only video I've found that keeps me breathing heavy and gets my heart rate up to the max zone. I can only get to the point with cardio combined ST moves (aside from running I'm sure, which I can't do exercise outside the house).

Take your focus off the Marshmallow. www.leangains.com/2010/01/marshmallo
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!
I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
All that matters is that you be the healthiest you, you ca
