LILYDAYDREAM , is the weight on your ticker correct? If so, you're actually probably eating too LITTLE! 1200 is very little, especially if you're active at all. What usually happens if you're over 200 lbs and in that calorie range, you've set a goal that's too aggressive. SP's algorithms aren't sophisticated, and rather than prevent goals that are too aggressive, they just plop you in the minimum range, You could probably still lose weight on a lot more. What do you mean by "not losing as well"? 1-2 lbs is a safe weight loss goal for you, and you can likely lose around 2 lbs, but anything around there is still great.
I looked at your nutrition tracker, and in fact, it seems like you are definitely undereating. Some days, you're not even making your minimum of 1200 calories, which means that you're short-changing your body's nutritional needs!
The closer you get to your weight loss goal, in fact you tend to need to eat MORE! That's because your margins for error are lower, and you're not creating huge deficits anymore.
