Good morning, everyone!
I just posted this question on a nutrtional message board and I thought I'd post it here, also. I am sure I am not the only one out here with this issue!!
Here is the post----
Help! I am a rather petite woman---4' 10" tall to be almost exact. I'm not sure exactly how to determine my "build", but if you use wrist size, I have a small build because my wrist is only 14 cm! I am not a "little person" however-- my limbs are very propotionate to my size.
I am also over 50 and post menopausal! Shouldn't my daily requirements be different than taller, younger people?
I simply cannot meet the guidelines set up for me by SP! I eat almost non-stop in order to reach my goals because I don't want to let my challenge teams down and I still cannot reach my caloric intake range for the day! As a result, I'm not losing any weight and I exercise tons because if I didn't, I would gain weight!
I want to get to a weight of around 105. I am currently 111 and completely stuck!!
I also don't want to completely reset everything on SP, because I don't want to lose any streaks, history, etc. that I have worked so hard for.
**What exactly should my requirements be?
This is what SP has me on right now:
Calories: 1,200 - 1,550
Fat: 32 - 56
Carbohydrates: 163 - 236
Protein: 60 - 127
**Also, how do I do this without totally re-setting everything?
Thanks for your help. I DO love SP!!!! I consider the interaction and advice an extremely important part of my day!! I have to figure out how to stay very connected to all this when school starts this Wednesday!!(I'm a teacher who is starting her LAST year before retirement!!! woo-hoo!!!!)
