I know this was posted forever ago, and I hope by now if you're able to change your goal for calories you've figured it out. However, one thing no on mentioned that I thought was worth saying is that 1200 is the minimum a woman should get in calories (normally) so that might be why you weren't able to lower it. For some people that number doesn't work in which case you would need to manually lower it after you figure out which numbers do work for you. But for health guidelines for most people within their BMI, women should not eat less than 1200 calories a day and men I believe it was 1500. So, just thought I'd explain why it didn't go down. Have a great day!

It looks like we are about the same on the scale, so I guess the calories are right for both of us. THANKS FOR INFORMATION!

I think until I lose more weight then it will stay at that number. I was talking with my Doctor about it and she said to stay on that average 1200-1500 but try and stay to the lower side. I never got it to change on the site. Good luck.

Deanna,
Did you ever get it figured out? If so, LET ME KNOW!! I have the same problem! It lets me edit it, but I don't know what to edit it to!! I cannot figure it out either! I am glad to see I am not the only one with this problem! Becky

how many calories do you have set up to be burning a day and what is your goal loss per week? those numbers are taken into account for your calorie range as well.

I went in and changed starting weight to today and current weight and it didn't change the calorie count. Not sure what else to do.

Do you have a link (same place) to change your weight goal? That's what I did before and it adjusted my calories accordingly.

I see that and can change them but not sure what to change them too. It won't let me remove them but edit.

On your Start Page in the left column (My Tools) at the bottom, is there a section called My Diet? On my Start Page, I can see that and it has a link where I can change my calories.

I have lost 15 lbs and I am not following the sparkdiet however I have been tracking all food/fitness goals here. It says to change diet stage and when I did it didn't change the calorie count. How much should I be eating to still lose weight. My current calorie count is 1200-1550.

Thank you in advance for your suggestions.
