Sounds like you have plateaued...normal for eveyone. Take a look at your nutrition. I find cutting out carbs and upping the protein makes a big difference.
If you are incorporating more exercise and strength training you might not be eating enough. Is that what your spark range is? A 500 calorie differential will give you 1 lb/week but it looks like you are in the 1200+ calorie differential which might be a bit too much for your body to take. In my ww group i've seen time and time again people hit a plateau eating at the higher end of their healthy range and that is how they break it.
Congrats on your success so far - you are awesome. Remember this is a life journey - remember all that you have accomplished and what you will accomplish, don't let dates get you down.

Your calorie burn seems about right given that is what your body is burning for an entire day with your exercise included.
I have noticed that upping my protein sometimes helps when my weight has plateaued
Losing 0.5 pounds a week is still good. The slower your weight comes off, the better. Not only does slower weight loss help combat problems like loose skin, but it also helps you keep it off in the future.
Best of luck to you!

" burning about 2500-2800 calories a day" Did you mean per week, not per day?
Have you hit plateaus before? Are still losing inches? I would be patient and keep on your program and it will come off.

Hi everyone! I'm looking for a little advice. I've been very focused the last few months. I've been eating about 1200-1350 calories a day, burning about 2500-2800 calories a day (I have a body bugg) and have been successfully losing about 2 lbs a week. However, in the last 4 weeks my weight loss has dropped to about .5 lb a week. I'm burning the same amount...each week I'm hitting 7000 calories burned and I've been slowly incorporating more exercise & strength training. So my question is....why has the weight loss slowed down? Anyone have any ideas? Oh I should probably mention that I've lost 32 lbs since I started this year (91 over the last 8 years!) and my current weight is 219.2 lbs. Should I just be patient and see what happens? It's killing me! I was hoping to be 200ish around the end of July but now I'm worried I won't meet my goal
