Default Harder to lose when you're already in the normal weight range

Welcome,

I agree with the other poster who advised taking time to adjust to the new dose.

It looks like your BMI is around 22. Is that right? It's much harder for women to lose weight in general, but harder still when you're already at your "ideal" weight.

Jenny at Diabetesupdate has a great calculator here: Calculate Your Ideal Nutrient Intake for Weight Loss or Maintenance
It's the only one I've ever used that comes anywhere close to a realistic relationship between calories eaten and weight. (Unlike Fitday, which calculates that I should be losing several pounds a week at my current calorie consumption level, ha!)
