Bodies don't generally care about what the clock says - they process calories the same way regardless of time. Set your schedule of meals to what works the best for you, and what leaves you feeling the best.
Since you're so close to your goal weight, and work a very physical job, I would suggest that you get your actual body fat percentage checked (not with one of the scales, which are notoriously inaccurate, but by a certified trainer who can do a caliper test) and see if this is a case where a BMI chart is going to be irrelevent because you already have a higher percentage of muscle. If this is the case, then losing more weight would mean losing muscle which wouldn't be a good thing.
If you're still at a higher body fat percentage than you want, and you still want to lose, I'd suggest that you first review your expectations. With so little to lose, it's safer (and more likely) that the rate is going to slow to 1/4 to 1/2lb per week while following the Spark ranges.
I'd also be wondering if your ranges are set a bit too low for your active jobs. You might want to try eating in "maintenance" range for a month or so and see if the additional calories allow your body to respond by building more muscle and losing some fat.
Finally, even though you do physical jobs, it's a good idea to have some other scheduled exercise that is different from what you do every day. Our bodies get very efficient at doing what they usually do, and shaking things up (add heavy weight lifting, for example, or add cycling or swimming) can really make a difference.
Hope this gives you some ideas!
Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.
Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.
