Question about Current versus Goal
I am relatively new to fitday. Been using it since April 1.
When I started in April, I weighed 180 and set a goal to be 160 by July.
In order to achieve this, fitday set a calorie deficit at -769. I have been trying to follow this as best as I can and am now down to 175 as of today (this whole week, really--feeling stalled!).
However, when I go into my Goals now, it (correctly) shows that I have 15 pounds to lose and gives me a new calorie deficit of -847. Does this mean I am not losing enough and need to adapt my caloric intake and follow the calorie deficit listed under 'Current' or still abide by the calorie deficit under 'Goal'?
I appreciate your input!
Hi Cameron! First of all, congratulations on your 5 pound weight loss.
Someone may come by to correct me, but here's what I think is going on.
You wanted to lose 20 lbs in 3 mos. That's 6.7 pounds a month. You lost 5 lbs in about a month with a 769 calorie deficit.
Now you have 15 lbs to lose in 2 mos (that's 7.5 lbs/mo), so to do that, you'll need to a bigger calorie deficit than before.
