At this point, I am several pounds below my maintenance goal. I keep losing weight. Because of some surgery, I had to cut back on fitness. I thought that might solve the problem. I'm eating, and some of the food that I had been leaving out. To be healthy, I want to continue some fitness. Has this happened to anyone else? What do you do if you lose too much weight. My last physical in August was very good. Kay

This morning on SP, I checked a chart on the web charting the appropriate weight for my size. I'm below that, and I keep losing. Today, I ate more, but still didn't get to the middle of my range. I've cut my fitness some, but don't want to give it up. What is the answer?
After tracking my "maintenance weight" each day (net calories divided by "11") I ask myself this question, "If my net calories were like this everyday, I would eventually weigh xxx lbs." As long as I see that my "maintenance weight" is less than what the scale shows, I know I am either maintaining or losing weight.
