my fitness pal question/concern

so because i have lost a total of 15 pounds my fitness pal raised my calorie intake to 1440 instead of 1300..why is that..I'm am kind of confused on why it was raised and i did not do did it once i updated my weight loss. can someone please explain to me why would your calorie intake increase instead of decrease, i know this is something i should know especially with working in the medical field but everyone keeps telling me "i don't know what to tell you, maybe its a sign to stop losing weight"..i am not listening to that answer because i am not losing weight for them i am doing it for myself and a better me in the future. since i lost these pounds my asthma doesn't bother me as much and i have been able to jog for 15 minutes without needing my inhaler.. before my weight loss i wasn't able to jog less than 5 minutes before i was puffing away. i am also losing weight because i am only 5'1" so with me being 180 at the time it was really hard to have a great self esteem..I'm 15 pounds lighter and i now feel my esteem rising and i actually can hold my head up without wondering what people are going to say about me when i leave.


  1. My advice would be to make sure MFP still shows that you want to lose x amount of weight a week. Maybe that was altered by accident. Just go through the height, weight, settings to make sure it didn't change.

  2. yes fitness post blog. weight loss exercise videos, diet plans goo.
