    Hi I am 5'2" and 174 lbs I would love to be 130-120 lbs again. I started to gain weight around age 25 Im 31 now and 186 has been my heaviest. What kind of diet did you go on to lose the weight?

    I have a question. How do you know when it's time to reset your calorie allowance? I'm 5"2. I started mfp mid march weighing 13 stone. I now weigh 12.3 so loosing a lb a week more or less. I have an Allowance of 1250 per day and usually "earn" 300/350 walking a 3 mile round the block route which has 2 very steep hills in it. I'm not showing signs of not losing yet, but wonder what weight to adjust my calories? Thanks

    MFP will automatically reset your calorie goal if you are inputing your weight into the app. 1250 isn't very much when you have quite a bit to lose, have you set it to lose 2lbs a week by any chance? I'm saying that because as you reduce in weight, so will your calorie allowance. You don't want to be eating any less than 1200 overall plus 50% of your exercise cals. How much are you losing per week now?

    I am set to lose 1lb per week as a sedentary person (office job sat on my backside 8 hours a day) I rarely eat all my exercise calories maybe 100 of them. I like to have a few in back up for the days I just have to eat chocolate or something. I always eat my 1250 though. I have lost a lb a week every week except one. I have 31lbs to lose to get to where I would like to be. Thanks for the response

    For me it was all about weighing my food out. And I mean everything! I only eat 1200 calories a day, but when I do exercise I eat all of my exercise calories back... and I give myself 1 or 2 days a week to eat what I want within moderation. Make sure you log in all of the sauces, and toppings you put on food too. Every little bit counts.
