those are the calories your body naturally burns each day!:) that bar is telling you that so far, you have burned x calories/out of x calories. if you come back an hour later, that first number will be higher than it was the last time. hope i explained it well enough! xoxo kate
Maintaining Does This Mean I Should Be Eating More? Feb 29 2012
21:13 (UTC)

Maintaining Does This Mean I Should Be Eating More? Feb 29 2012
20:42 (UTC)

ooh how odd:o i'm actually going through the same thing as you are right now!:) i'm going to eat more. but that's just me. frankly, i don't see why i shouldn't. i mean, i'm hungry, i exercise, i eat healthy; so why can't i eat more? normally i eat around 2,400 calories, but tomorrow i'm shooting for 2,600! and i think you should too.

don't be so worried about increasing, and 2500 is usually a gaining amount for sedentary women. you're not sedentary. therefore, i think it would be impossible for you to gain. you said it yourself too,"...i've been maintaining my weight on 2500 calories..." which just proves that eating 100 or even 200 calories more won't do you anything but good! besides, according to my handy dandy children's healthy eating calculator someone of your height, age and weight should be eating anywhere from 2,300-2,800 calories each day!:D

but if you want to wait and see if this hunger passes, be my guest. it is your body after all<3 hope i helped a bit, and feel better soon! xoxo kate

EDIT had to say are SOO lucky! my lunch isn't until 1 o'clock! ugh. but they give us two ten minute breaks where we can eat so i guess that makes up for it:p

Young Calorie Counters school makes me fat? Feb 29 2012
20:18 (UTC)

it doesn't sound stupid! i'm pretty sure lots of other teens are wondering about this too :3 i join lots of after school clubs!:) currently, i'm in soccer, cheer, tennis, and judo. i also use the fitness room during gym class. i've heard that standing instead of sitting while at the computer works too. have you considered walking home from school? i walk to the bus stop everyday also, which takes me about 20 minutes going uphill even at a very brisk pace! hope i helped:o

nack_14 hi, thanks for the suggestions! i'll try and remember to do that tomorrow!:)

kittycats502 hey!:D kay, so basically your saying that you think i could maintain on more than 2400 calories a day? i really hope that's what you mean, i've been super hungry lately; been holding myself back thou, and haven't eaten much more than i normally would..): but i'd really like to eat more! do you think that maybe eating 2,600 calories would be enough? i'll proabably post a thread in the maintainers forum later, just to be safe. and ask my gym coach, of course. thanks for the ideas on where to get some more calories from!:3

asethi17 oh, okay!

coach_k yeah, it definitely wasn't based on my physiology hahah. i tried the link you gave me, and it said that i needed 2162, so i'm going to try and aim for that for a while!:) or higher, if i exercise more that day, ofc. i don't plan on maintaining this weight for the rest of my life, because i know that as my body matures and i get older i'll probably gain some. especially if i somehow manage to get taller!

thanks so much for the replies you guys!:D
