So I've been at my goal weight (160lbs) for nearly 6 months, but over that time, I've still been losing weight. It's a slow weight loss, as I dropped about 7 pounds (currently at 153lbs). Starting in November, I've been training for a half marathon this June, and I think the long run days are a big reason why I'm still losing the weight.
Now I have my Spark goal weight set at 160lbs. I've been eat consistently at the top range of my calorie intake, which is about 2500 calories. I've also been consistently tracking my exercises, where I'm set to burn 3000 calories per week, and I've been hitting that calorie mark consistently. And so with all of that I'm still slowly shedding weight. Now I guess that's not necessarily a bad thing, as there still some jiggly places that I can lose fat at, but I find it strange that I shouldn't be losing this weight.
So my question is should I consider adding more calories to my diet? I guess I can tone down the exercising, but I'd rather not do that as I'm preparing for the half marathon (and several 5k and 10k races leading up to it.) Should I be modifying the amount of calories I've been burning, as maybe the calories burned calculated by Spark are too low? I'd really like to get people's thoughts about this.
