I'm thinking though, that if the system is telling you to maintain (based on the data you entered that it needs to calculate and come to that conclusion). From what you said, maybe toning your abs is what you should focus on (the spare tire). Just a thought.

The best to you on your journey!

you know what's best for you, don't let the naysayers get you down, most often comments like that come from jealousy. You're need to lose weight is just as important as theirs!
I have struggled with the same 5 pounds for a year now. My eating is not consistent, I am a stress eater with a stressful job! I run *a lot* but it isn't enough! I have 10-15 to lose, so I know where you are coming from!
Good luck, you can totally do this! Remember that you cannot spot train, cardio will melt the fat and strength training will tone it!

Hi, I'm new to this site and am trying to navigate it. I'm trying to lose 10 pounds, although when setting up my profile I was advised to maintain my weight. I have a very small frame, so those 10 pounds which are sitting around my middle (which weren't there before menopause) really are extra pounds. I'm fairly active, really need to improve my diet, and am busting out of my clothes. I get flack from others who might want to lose more pounds than I (saying that I don't need to lose weigh), but it's not about the numbers, it's about that spare tire - it just shouldn't be there! I pretty much don't mention my desire to lose weight anymore, because people don't take my concerns seriously. To my thinking, the smaller you are (frame-wise) the more significant even just a few pounds is. Anyone else have a similar situation? I'd appreciate your comments. Thanks!
