I'm wondering how accurate the daily calorie goal is. I recently had a baby and have an extra 50 pounds to lose, yet when I entered my new weight into SP, my calorie goal has not changed. Shouldn't the daily calorie goal increase some since I would technically have a higher TDEE at a heavier weight?
