I see that you have been a member with SP since about 2010.
Has there been a recent change in your calorie range?
Our lowest range for women is 1200-1550....so your 1250 would fit within this range.

What amount of calories were you eating when you gained weight?

Is your nutrition tracker and fitness minutes tracker linked? That could be why your range is so high.

You don't provide any info, such as..."my SP range is 1500-2100 per day and I'm simply not losing weight".

So....I'm assuming this is just a declaration.

And that's ok, too.

I, personally, cannot lose weight eating consistently at, say, 1500 per day. I do best eating at 1200 most days, with a bump day at about 1700 (today!!!).

All that matters is that you are doing it (losing weight) in a healthy fashion, as opposed to eating too few calories for your weight/height/workout intensity.

Are you?

The best exercise in the world is to bend down and help someone up.

How many calories were you eating when following spark? Remember your body COULD be in starvation mode and thats why you gained a little weight at first. If you gain weight eating 1600 calories a day while working out, you need to see a doctor.
