Yay! Keep going girl!
Liss, I've been slouching on my sofa - you've just given me the inspiration I need to get off my backside and go for a run. Thankyou!

hey there LISS, fingers crossed that you like what you see on that scale on Thursday. Remember that slow and steady wins the race! (So very patronising to say that, I know...but it's true!)

I am doing more intense cardio (elliptical and running mostly sometimes spinning) I have started adding in some strength training. Mainly free weights for about fifteen minutes twice a week. I'm burning about 3000 calories a week based on what the fitness tracker is saying. I think I just always get nervous when I am trying to lose weight and all of a sudden I have to eat more. So far the past four days I have been trying to eat on the higher end of my range of calories and I have see some changes on the scale. Weigh in day for me though is Thursday so we will see what happens!

Are you tracking your food and exercise on Spark? If so you can go to the my trackers menu, click on reports and click on calorie differential over time. It will show you a graph with both your calories in and your calories burned. However, one thing you need to realise with this is that it averages out the exercise calories for the whole week. This means that if you burn 350 calories on the first day of the week for tracking it will come up as 50 on the graph as it splits it into seven. However, as you add exercise throughout the week the calorie burn indicator gets higher. I hope this makes sense!
I find it really useful as it shows me if I have some "spare" calories for a treat or two at the end of the week or if I need to get more active.
Hopefully you will feel more secure about your calorie needs if you use it.

An hour of cardio 5-6 days a week?! Girl, you need to throw some strength training in there!

How many calories do you burn each week? It's hard to give you advice based one hour of cardio 5-6 days per week.

You didn't say if your one-hour cardio workout is walking at leisurely pace or a high-intensity aerobics / martial arts / spinning class. If you're training at high intensity, your calorie range sounds rather low.

Even if you're only doing moderate exercise, it's good to change things up every now and then, so a day or two of eating more will just boost your metabolism.

I would use the lower range calories for more sedentary times - more calories when you are exercising. Some times people think that need to eat as little as possible, but that can often have a negative affect on our weight-loss. Sometimes eating a bit more DOES equate to less - (losing weight!)

Are you worried about it being too high?

Because I eat 1500 cals a day and I'm 5'2 108 lbs and lose weight on that amount because I exercise regularly.

Your calorie range sounds accurate for your weight and activity level. If anything, on the low side. Don't be afraid to eat.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow.

"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.

I have been getting a little nervous about the number of calories I should be eating in relation to the exercise that I have been doing. I work out 5 to 6 times a week doing at least one hour of cardio. My calories range is about 1400 to 1850. I always try to stay on the lower end of the calorie scale. Any tips of suggestions?
