Thank you for answering so quickly. My calorie range is 1200 - 1550. I have a little different problem than a lot of people though, I often have trouble getting up to 1200 a day. For years (literally) I only ate 600 - 800 calories a day and couldn't understand why I wasn't loosing. When I tried to talk to my primary care doctor about it he basically told me I must be lying to him and to just cut back more and stop cheating. I finally talked to my OB/GYN and she told me I needed at least 1200 a day. That was in January, I joined SparkPeople Feb. 4. So, I have been trying to make sure I get no less than 1200. I checked my "calories and nutrients over time" and in the last 30 days my highest calorie count was 1451, I had one borderline day where I almost got to 1200 but not quite and 6 days where I was lower.
I just reset my current weight and goal weight but it doesn't look like anything changed on my nutrition tracker page so maybe I'm wrong and they were OK in the first place. I'm just getting frustrated because I've been doing everything suggested and it doesn't appear to be working.
