This morning I stepped on the scale. Down 1.2 pounds Yea!

I proudly entered my new number in MFP. Now the downside, it readjusted my daily calories down from 1340 to 1280. Oh the fun of being close to goal. :smile:

    Ugh, that's less than a fun sized snickers bar!

    But yay for losing weight. :)

    And did you adjust your goal weight loss per week down, cos closer to goal you slow down rate of loss
  • pdxwinepdxwine Member Posts: 389 Member Member Posts: 389 Member
    I did not adjust my goal weight. It has remained the same.

    Yep, I know that the rate of loss slows. I am so cool with that. I have taken this entire journey one pound at a time.

    No problems, it was just the first time, in quite awhile, that my daily calorie goal changed. :smile:

    She meant the rate of loss, not the total end goal. For example, from 2lb/week to 1lb/week or 1lb/week to .5lb/week.

    Well done on your continuing progress :)

    As for the adjustment to the calories ... gotta love first world problems! I look forward to enjoying such a downside!

    Yes exactly ...purposefully slowing down rate of loss so achieving maintenance is an easier process

    Close to goal? Aim for 250 calorie cut for 1/2 lb a week

    Congratulations on a great loss :]
    Unfortunately, the less we weigh - the less energy we need. Not fair, right?!

    Yay! You got this. ;)

    Yeah and what is really annoying is that the less you weigh, the fewer calories you burn! I guess that makes sense as a large SUV is going to take a lot more gas than a mini cooper.

    congratulations to you!!

    DOH! I read that wrong.

    I have not (yet) adjusted my weekly goal. It has always been set at 1 pound per week.
