Sorry for the severely late response to this. It's been one crazy summer!
Calorie cycling is a great idea - also switching up your workouts - try something completely new, or push your running a little further or a little faster, and see what happens! Your body has probably gotten used to your routine and is acting like you're in maintenance...

Hi there! Have you tried calorie cycling? It is where you eat more on the days you burn more calories and eat less on your rest days. It is suppose to confuse your body so it doesn't get use to the amount of calories you are eating and you don't plateau. For me, I ate around 1200-1300 on my rest days, 1600-1800 on my high calorie days and then somewhere in between on the rest of the days. So over the course of a week, you are eating the same amount of calories as you would if you were eating 1500 a day. It worked for me, if you need more information just ask, there is also a calorie cycling team here on SP. Welcome to the team!!

Hi everyone! My name is Heather, and I need some help here :) I'm 120 lbs and I can't budge on the scale. I eat about 1500 cals a day, run 3x weekly and strength train. So I am very frustrated! Any support would be much appreciated. Oh yeah, I'm looking for Spark buddies! I've been on Spark people since December and am only just now starting to go on the message boards. Have a great day
