This Sparked Me!

I am near the end of my weight loss journey. HOWEVER, I am STRUGGLING with the last few pounds,and they DON"T seem FEW{!} because of various difficulties,one of which is I NEVER have been very successful with STAYING within my caloric range.Right now due to an injury, I can't really exercise, so...

COUNTING those calories is MORE IMPORTANT now for me than before [I have been able to up my BMR to 1800s}.Checking my weekly caloric progress on a DAILY basis helps me to SEE MY OVERALL CALories AT A glance and how I'm doing in relation to my range.I'm now going BACK to when I started and try again

    Note:My caloric range was LOWER when I started 1200-1550 cal. and I had TROUBLE with that!! Though I was able to eat around 1300-1500 cal.,it slowly went up,but BMR went up,TOO! Then,as I readjusted my cal. intake to up to 1600 and then where I am NOW-up to 1900 cal. ,it seems my intake just goes UP!--2000,2200,2400!! So,I'm going BACK to seeing the Menus of WHAT I ate to achieve the 1400s-1900s,but the WEEKLY Caloric Progress has HELPED ME and therefore,is a secret of my success in losing the 19.4 lbs. I have.
