    Well I was eating around 1500 - 1800 when I thought my BMR was 1700+. I also burn about 300 calories a day exercising. So I was worried that I was actually in starvation mode and that was why I plateued but THEN after being pretty diligent about eating closer to my BMR (again, the BMR that Spark says I have) and I started to gain a bit of weight which I thought might be muscle weight. It was just 3 lbs, but I lost it. I went on vacation, ate like a bird and came home weighing the same as when I left. Then in a week I gained 3 lbs and in the 2 week after that I gained 3 more! By that time I was burning 1800 cals in the week and I was sure hungry enough to have eaten what I ate, yet I was gaining weight. Soooo....I'm 55 now and I thought, that maybe my metabolism has slowed down because of my age and again, this is my 3rd big weight loss, so maybe that yo yo thing had an effect on my metabolism too. Now if my BMR is really 1450 or so then of course I would be gaining weight eating 1500 - 1800 a day! So NOW I'm going to shoot for 1500 cals, tops each day. BUT it might take me a while to get there . All in baby steps, right?
