Are you including healthy fats as a part of your diet? I know that I was having difficulty in reaching those daily goals...I started adding 1 tablespoon of olive oil to either cooking or salads. If your calorie ranges are correct take a look at the breakdowns of protein/carbs/fats...and make sure your getting enough.

Just to assure accuracy with your set up and all...
What is your SP calorie range?
What is your typical daily intake?

What kind of foods are you eating? I think that makes a difference. There's a lot more food to eat, for example, if you're trying to eat 2000 calories in apples each day versus 2000 calories in pasta or pizza.

I was amazed at the suggested caloric intake of 1800-2300 cal/day, I have been eating 1200-1600/day all week (I have only been here a week, lol)
I had it in my head that my weight loss goal was 100 pounds in a year, but I had only set my goal for about 75 pounds to lose.
I fixed that and now the calories are a more believable 1500-1800...which I am still under but don't feel as if I should be stuffing myself to the point of discomfort.

Maybe double check your current weight and desired weight to lose goal?

Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.

And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;

The result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.

can you give a little more info?

What is your height? Weight? How much do you want to lose per month?
How much exercise are you doing?
